Let me tell you, that granola is life changing. The little clusters of granola have a light coating of honey. When you add the granola to the yogurt, the honey coating mixes into the parfait and it's amazing! You can see the beginning of what happens when the yogurt and oats and honey granola start to mix in the bottom of the picture above. It's so sweet and delicious it's hard to believe it's actually healthy for you (just gotta watch the serving sizes!) And it's surprisingly filling.
More proof: Blogger Amanda calls it her favorite desert, snack, and lunch (really, insert any meal here). She specifically describes it as an every day alternative to cupcakes. I'll try anything that's described as a fix for supersized sweet tooth cravings.
So in case you're keeping score at home, we've got...
Healthy and guilt-free
Something that satisfies even my enormous sweet tooth craving
All that adds up to a winner in my book. Here's Amanda's original blog post about the parfait. I switched it up and used Stonyfield organic non-fat vanilla yogurt (trying to avoid the high fructose corn syrup).
There's really no recipe... just a suggested ingredient list. Mix it together in a bowl or layer it in a glass. Below are pictures of everything I use but switch things up so it works for you. I love it equally with blueberries and raspberries. Enjoy!
