Healthy Granola Yogurt Parfait Recipe
A healthy and delicious snack idea!
I think this yummy granola yogurt parfait would be a perfect morning snack! Since there is a bit of sweetness to it, I think it might actually fulfill that craving for sweets that I get at night too. Trade in the ice cream for a fresh, light yogurt parfait! Yum! What do you think? When would this snack fit into your day: mid-morning snack, 3 pm cravings, or mid-night munchies?
The granola is really simple and easy. I have oats, almonds, sunflower seeds, wheat germ, flaxseed, and unsweetened flaked coconut in there. If you want to, you could easily sub something else for the sunflower seeds too. I think the wheat germ and flaxseed are flexible as well.
You can find all the ingredients you need at your local Albertsons! I like shopping at Albertsons because the prices are good, the stores are nice, and the selection is great too.
The syrup for the granola is melted virgin coconut oil and honey. Nice and simple. No refined sugar needed.
The granola ends up with just a touch of sweetness to it from the honey.
With this granola recipe, you end up with about 12 cups worth. Of course, you could just do half the recipe, but think of how many more delicious yogurt parfaits you could make with all of it! And other snacks or treats too. Oh, I bet it would delicious over cooked apples, like an apple crisp! Mmm.
Choose any flavor yogurt and whichever fruits your heart may desire! So many possibilities! Of course, some combos are better than others, but I’ll leave it to you to use your best judgement. I’m pretty much a vanilla girl myself. I think the Yoplait® vanilla yogurt and fresh strawberries are an awesome choice for this granola parfait. Sliced banana would probably be pretty good in there too.
With General Mills and your local Albertsons, you can find snacks that fit into your day, whatever it may bring. When you do, you’ll Be Snacksational!
If you’re joining us in the TERRAfit fitness challenge, you will want to choose a yogurt with less than 20 carbs per serving and pay attention to the ingredients and sweeteners – the best choice would be a plain Greek yogurt.
