Apple season is in full swing! Here’s a quick and easy treat to whip up with all those beautiful apples you just picked at the orchard. Or the farmer’s market. Or the grocery store. Whatevs, just go get some apples and give this a try.
You don’t have to make your own granola, but trust me when I tell you that you want that toasty, cinnamon, sweet granola smell wafting through your house. Plus it’s so easy to make and totally delicious. And you get to pick exactly what goes in it – my favorite part about making my own granola.
Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Parfait with Granola
- 3 cup Dannon Light and Fit Vanilla Greek Yogurt
- 1 large apple, peeled and chopped (200 grams)
- 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Optional: 1/8 tsp arrowroot flour to thicken the sauce
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 1/2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees. Line a baking sheet with SILPAT.
Mix all granola ingredients together until clumpy. Spread evenly on baking sheet, being careful not to break apart the clumps too much. Bake for 40 minutes, flipping with a spatula halfway through.
Add apples, maple syrup, and cinnamon to a small pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then cover and lower heat to a simmer for 10-15 minutes or until apples are tender.
If using arrowroot, whisk with 1 tbsp water until dissolved, then stir into apple mixture. Bring mixture up to a boil again, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Layer yogurt, apples, and granola as desired for serving.
