HONEY AND POMEGRANATE GRANOLA PARFAITS

INGREDIENTS

  • For the granola:

  • 2 tsp oil

  • 2 cups large flake rolled oats

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 6 tsp Goodness Me Honey

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • For the parfaits:

  • 200g PomiGold pomegranate arils (fresh or frozen)

  • 3 cups plain fat-free Greek yoghurt (3/4 cups for each of the 4 parfaits)

METHOD

  1. For the Granola: Add the oil to a large heated skillet over medium heat. Add the oats and toss them in the oil until the oil is absorbed.

  2. Let the oats toast (you may want to turn the heat down to medium-low), tossing them frequently to be sure they don’t burn.

  3. Once the colour of the oats has deepened slightly (about 5 minutes) and you’re able to smell them toasting, turn the heat to low and add the cinnamon, honey and vanilla, stirring constantly.

  4. Continue to cook the granola over low heat for about 2-3 minutes, making sure you’re stirring constantly.

  5. Scoop the granola out of the pan and onto a sheet of parchment paper on the counter, spreading it out to cool.

  6. Let the granola cool completely before assembling the parfaits. Once the granola has cooled completely it will be shiny and crunchy.

  7. To Assemble the Granola Parfaits: Layer some fat-free Greek Yogurt, granola and then pomegranate arils into each of four (1.5 cup) mason jars (4 bowls or 4 large glasses works fine too!), and repeat the layers so you end up with six layers in each jar!

  8. Serve, and enjoy!
