Homemade Granola Yoghurt Parfait

I am sure you’ll are thinking why do we need to make the Granola at home? Well, the easier bought out option is always there but if you want to really make it unique and personalized to your taste, there is no better mix than the Granola. I prefer to throw in nuts, seeds, strips of coconut, dried fruits along with rolled oats. Top it all off with honey or maple syrup. Thick curd or preferably Greek yoghurt is a must for this recipe. Although, this is ideal for breakfast, one can also use this as healthy light mid-day meal. There is a high degree of freedom when it comes to the choice of fruits. I have used  blueberries, strawberries and mango, but you can always use any seasonal fruit. It’s a good idea to make the Granola in a reasonably large quantity. It always comes in handy with other breakfast cereal combines. So cheer up your breakfast with the homemade Granola Yoghurt Parfait. Happy fooding around!

Ingredients

Ingredients :

  • 1 cup thick curd or Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 cup Homemade Granola or any other Granola
  • 1 cup mixed fresh seasonal fruits, diced
  • 2 Tbsp Honey

 

Ingredients for the Granola :

  • 3 cups whole Rolled Oats or regular Oats
  • 45 Tbsp Honey
  • 34 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 3/4th Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ½ Tsp Cinnamon powder
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 1/3rd cup dried fruits, chopped (Dates, Prunes, Apricots, etc) – Optional
  • 1/4th cup Seeds ( Sunflower, Pumpkin, Flaxseed, Chia, etc) – Optional
  • 1/3rd cup Nuts ( Cashew, Almond, Pistachio, Walnut, etc) – Optional

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 °F or 180°C. Mix and blend together the oil, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon powder and the salt. Transfer the oats to a bowl and add the oil and honey mix to it along with the other optional ingredients if you are using any. Keep the dried fruits to be added later on, post the baking.
  2. Line the Baking Tray with a Parchment paper (Butter/Wax Paper) and spread the Oats mixture evenly. If the Granola is clumpy, press it against the baking tray with the help of a spatula.
  3. Bake for 12 – 15 mins stirring half way through. The Granola is ready and done when it is golden – brown and the nuts and seeds are nicely toasted. Take out and place the baking tray to cool. Sprinkle the dried fruits, if you are using any. Transfer the Granola to air tight containers once totally cooled for long time storage.
  4. To Assemble the Parfait, whisk the yoghurt to a smooth consistency. Scoop 2 Tbsp of the yoghurt into the parfait glass, top it with 2 Tbsp of the Granola and then top it with 2 Tbsp of the fruit mix. Now repeat the process adding a spoonful of honey in between the layers. Served chilled or room temperature.

Notes

Completely cool down the oven- baked Granola before transferring to air tight containers for long time storage.
