Yogurt Parfaits with Homemade Granola

Servings 6

Ingredients

For the Granola

  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup chopped pistachios
  • 2/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Parfaits

  • your favorite Greek yogurt I used vanilla and strawberry
  • your favorite fresh fruit I used blackberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and position a rack in the middle of the oven. Lightly grease a half sheet pan with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, walnuts, pistachios, and shredded coconut. Toss in the salt, cinnamon, and cardamom, and stir to combine. Stir in the olive oil, honey, and vanilla extract, stirring until evenly coated.
  3. Pour our the bowl of granola onto the prepared baking sheet and spread into an even layer. Bake the granola for 40-45 minutes, stirring about every 15 minutes to ensure that the granola is baking evenly. If you like your granola full of chunky clumps, don't stir the granola as it's baking; the choice is up to you! If you find that the granola is starting to brown a little too quickly, simply place a sheet of aluminum foil on top to prevent the granola from getting any additional color as it continues to bake.
  4. Once baked, remove the granola from the oven and allow it to cool completely.  This will be difficult, because the granola will smell amazing.  Once completely cool, you can begin to make your parfaits!  Simply layer your favorite Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, and this amazing homemade granola in a clear glasses.
