Cinnamon Maple Granola Parfait

Healthy homemade granola that’s perfectly crunchy with a sweet maple flavour.

cinnamon-granola-parfait I love the simplicity of breakfast. Mostly I rotate between smoothies and porridge but with a little forward planning you can have this delicious homemade granola parfait.

Granola is one of those items where nothing compares to homemade. I bought one a few weeks back and it was a massive disappointment, although a good reminder of why we need to make our own. It really is so simple; with just a few ingredients needed and a half hour in the oven.

Ever since I worked in a maple syrup store in Canada in 2004, I’ve had a massive love for it. The flavour is rich and complex and is wonderful in granola. I added walnuts for a little extra crunch and pumpkin seeds for extra nutrients.

The granola is wonderful served with some greek yoghurt and a drizzle of maple syrup. You could also add some fresh blueberries which would be lovely. If you are dairy free, which I am the majority of the time, this is delicious with almond milk. I hope you love this granola as much as I do.

    Hi Casey!! Thanks so much for this recipe, I was looking for an easy home made granola without too many ingredients, and this is it! I’m wondering if I can use honey instead of maple syrup and would the amount be the same?

    Thank you!

      Hi Sanja, absolutely you can use honey, I often do because maple syrup is much more expensive. Just use the same amount of honey. Sometimes I melt the coconut oil and honey together in a saucepan to make it extra runny. Hope you enjoy!
