This healthy parfait recipe combines Greek yogurt, berries and homemade gluten-free granola for a quick and easy breakfast treat.
As much as I love baking a little more healthfully, I’m a terrible eater. My day normally starts off with a leftover brownie or piece of cake. I figure if I’m going to eat dessert, I might as well start the day on a happy note and eat it first thing. It’s embarrassing.
These gluten-free parfaits are my attempt at a slightly less indulgent breakfast. There’s a little honey and sugar in the granola but it’s nothing compared to what’s in the store-bought version! Have you ever read the nutrition label on a box of granola? It’s both incredibly saddening (because it’s so delicious!) and kind of horrifying.
The homemade gluten-free granola I used in these parfaits is super simple and calls for only a few ingredients, which you probably already have in your pantry. Speaking of ingredients, the two tablespoons of vanilla isn’t a typo! Without the vanilla and almond extract, this granola just wouldn’t taste like much, which is why I used so much.
