Ingredients

for the nut granola

  • 2 cups mixed nuts
  • 1 tablespoon flax seed linseeds
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil melted
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey/maple syrup/low carb sweetener to taste (optional)
  • pinch of salt

for the blueberry sauce

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 2-3 teaspoons Xylitol or another sugar alternative
  • 1 tablespoon water

for the parfait

  • plain Greek yoghurt
  • fresh raspberries or other fruit of your choice

Instructions

  • To make the granola, pre-heat the oven to 180°c and line a baking tray with baking paper/parchment.
  • Combine all the granola ingredients then tip onto the baking tray and place in the oven.
  • Allow to bake for 5-10 minutes until the nuts are golden brown. Check on the granola regularly as it can burn easily.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to chill.
  • To make the blueberry sauce, combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Allow to cook for 5-10 minutes until the berries have released their juice. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  • To make the parfaits, layer the yoghurt with the granola, sauce and fresh fruit in a jar/bowl of your choice. If making the parfait in a jar, close with the lid and place in the fridge overnight before serving.

Notes
