Breakfast Parfait

A great way to start your day is with a parfait. It’s sweet, fulfilling, has protein and fibre! This recipe makes extra granola so you can use it in other recipes. Make it into a trail mix by adding dried fruit (cranberries, apricots, raisins, figs etc). Or sprinkle it on cereal, oatmeal, smoothie, or salad. 

Tip:  Make the granola ahead of time, so all that’s left is assembling. Or assemble it all in advance, cover it, and store in the fridge for up to a day.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 cups oats (old fashioned/large flake/steel-cut/rolled)
  • ⅔ cup nuts of your choice, chopped
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • 4 tbsp (¼ cup) 100% maple syrup
  • 2-3 tbsp canola oil
  • Optional: ½ cup pumpkin/sunflower seeds
  • Optional: 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 4 cups (1L) plain low fat yogurt (2% or less)
  • 3 cups fresh berries or peach (fruit of your choice)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Then mix in maple syrup and canola oil, making sure to coat everything evenly. 
  3. Spread mixture flat on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes (or until golden brown), stirring half-way through the baking time. Let it cool. 
  4. Layer ¼ cup granola with ¾ cup yogurt. Sprinkle a bit more granola overtop, and top with fresh berries. 
  5. Serve cold, or cover and keep in the fridge until morning.
