Homemade Granola Yogurt Parfait

Simple, Customizable and Delish!

This Granola Yogurt Parfait is quick and easy breakfast, snack or dessert.

You can use your favorite yogurt, favorite fruit or berries and even your favorite granola!

But I highly recommend trying our homemade granola if you’ve never made granola before.

And it makes 6 cups so once you make it, you’ll have it for the week.

Recipe from my sister-in-law, it’s a combination of her favorite recipes and can be easily adapted to your family’s tastes.

The basics are gluten-free oats, 2 types of chopped nuts (we used walnuts & pecans), coconut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, sea salt and dried fruit (we used cranberries but dried apricots, raisins or any fruit you like would work great!).

A note about oats: Oats are a naturally gluten-free grain but they are contaminated via cross contact with wheat, barley and rye during the growing and processing process. So definitely look for gluten free oats, preferably certified gluten free oats.

But there’s more…. back when my son was first diagnosed with celiac disease, gluten-free oats were mostly grown via a process known as purity protocol. In recent years, gluten-free oats have also been processed through a manufacturing process known as “sorting”. There is much controversy about sorting versus purity protocol oats. For more information I’m linking articles by GF Jules and by Gluten-Free Watchdog.

Also, some people with celiac don’t tolerate oats so please do what ‘s best for you and your health.

For those interested, we use gluten-free oats from GF Harvest (amazon affiliate link), grown through purity protocol.

Back to the gluten-free granola…

I didn’t realize I was missing out until I finally made our own. And it makes the most delicious parfait!
