Granola Parfait with Fruit and Yogurt
5 cups rolled oats
2 1/2 cups nuts (I used chopped pecans and walnuts)
1 cup sunflower seeds
3/4 cup sesame seeds
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Fresh fruit (I used strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and pineapple)
For the granola, preheat oven to 300. In a large bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, combine the applesauce, honey, maple syrup, and oil. Pour over the dry ingredients and mix well. Spread evenly onto rimmed baking sheets in a single layer. Bake for 35-45 minutes, stirring and rotating the pans every 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, stir to mix well. It will crisp as it cools. Store in an airtight container.
For the parfait:
Place a bit of the granola in the bottom of a dish. Top with a generous amount of yogurt. Top with fresh fruit. Sprinkle a little more granola on the very top. Enjoy!
