Scale

Ingredients

  • 24 oz. plain yogurt or Greek yogurt

Mixed Berry Compote:

  • 1 pint of fresh raspberries
  • 1 pint of fresh blackberries
  • 1 pint of fresh blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • dash of cinnamon
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot

Almond Granola:

  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free oats
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Line a baking sheet with a parchment paper or a baking mat.
  3. In a medium bowl, add gluten free oats, almonds, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir to combine the dry ingredients. Next add in maple syrup and melted coconut oil. Using a spatula stir to coat all the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.
  4. Spread the granola mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, using a spatula turn the granola. (or just move it around)
  6. Bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  7. In the meantime, to a small saucepan add raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, water, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt. Turn heat to medium low and let the berries cook down for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. You may want to press down and crush a couple of the berries, that is fine as well.
  8. After the 5 minutes, add arrowroot to the berry compote. Stir it in until it is dissolved. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes. Remove and let cool.
  9. Assemble parfaits: add 2-3 tablespoons of berry mixture to the bottom of a jar, top with 4 oz. of yogurt and sprinkle with granola.
  10. Serve and devour!
  11. HINT: these can be premade and stored in the refrigerator for later use. Just don’t add the granola because it will get soggy.
