Homemade Granola Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ⅓ cup melted and cooled coconut oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds (optional)

Parfait Ingredients

Granola Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF and lightly spray a half sheet baking pan, or line with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together rolled oats, cinnamon and salt. Add in melted coconut oil and maple syrup, stirring together until well combined. Stir in chia seeds if using.
  3. Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan and spread evenly in one layer. Bake for 15 minutes, then gently flip granola and press down flat. Return pan to oven for another 15 minutes, until oats are lightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool—granola gets crunchy as it cools.

Parfait Directions

  1. In a small jar or container, add in 1–2 tablespoons of granola, chopped fruit, and half of the Coconut Milk Yogurt Alternative pouch. Repeat with another layer of granola, fruit and the remaining pouch. Serve immediately or store in the fridge until ready to enjoy (granola will get soft the longer you let the parfaits sit).
