  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free maple syrup

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2  cup apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup of coconut flakes
  • plain or vanilla fat-free greek yogurt

Instructions

  1. To make granola: Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix together oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. Add cranberries, raisins, pecans and almonds to bowl. Stir to combine.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin and apple sauce until well combined.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until evenly coated. Spread granola in a thin layer over baking sheet. Sprinkle coconut on top.
  4. Bake granola until golden, stirring oats halfway through baking, about 40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before making parfaits.
  5. To make parfaits: slice 1 banana and set aside. Place 1/2 cup of greek yogurt in glass. Top yogurt with 1/4 cup of granola. Add a couple of banana slices. Place another 1/4 cup granola on top of bananas. Add a tablespoon or two of yogurt on top of granola. Sprinkle a bit more granola on top and add more bananas. Drizzle honey on top if desired.

  6. Repeat for each parfait you wish to make. Recipe makes about 4 parfaits.

  7. Store granola in airtight container. Enjoy your new favorite breakfast!
