  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 egg white, beaten until frothy
  • 3 cups whole rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup roasted cashews, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • flaky salt, for sprinkling
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 
  2. Combine tahini, honey, sesame oil, coconut oil, salt and egg white in a small bowl. Whisk until smooth and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine oats, coconut flakes, cashews, sesame seeds and flax seeds. Pour tahini sauce over top and stir until everything is well coated. Spread into an even layer, about 1/2-inch thick, on prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with flaky salt.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, rotate the pan but don’t stir. Bake another 15- 20 minutes, until light golden brown. The edges will be darker brown and the center will still be soft. Let cool completely on the pan, then break into chunks. Stir in raisins and chocolate.
