This week’s recipe will probably require a trip to the store, but we think it’s worth it. This is some of the best granola we’ve ever tasted! No store-bought brand can compare to the crunch of fresh-baked granola. Serve it with some fall fruit from our boxes this week.
Fall Fruit Parfait with Fresh Baked Granola
Ingredients for Granola
3-4 cups rolled oats
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 sesame seeds
1/3 cup coconut oil melted
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 cup dried fruit chopped (I like tart cherries, but raisins can be substituted to save money)
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
Ingredients for Single Serving of Parfait
1 cup chopped apples and pluots tossed with a pinch of cinnamon
½ cup plain yogurt
~1 tbsp honey
~1 tbsp shredded cocounut
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix oats, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, shredded coconut, salt, melted coconut oil, and maple syrup in large bowl until ingredients are evenly coated. Spread evenly over a sheet pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake for 1-1.5 hours, stirring every 20 minutes until ingredients are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Mix in dried fruit.
To make parfait, put chopped fruit in bottom of mason jar, top with yogurt, then granola, sprinkle with coconut and drizzle with honey. Can sit overnight, covered. This recipe is great to make ahead for a quick breakfast!
