Blueberry and Maple Pecan Granola Parfait

Blueberry and Maple Pecan Granola Parfait

I had been wanting to try making my own granola for a while but I purposefully held off until the summer. I had seen granola being served with yogurt and fresh berries as a parfait and I wanted to try it like that. Now that the fresh local blueberries were out was the perfect time. I used the maple pecan granola that had survived my snacking for breakfasts last week in the form of parfaits with vanilla yogurt, fresh blueberries and topped it off with some maple syrup. It was amazing! The crunchy granola went really well in the cool and creamy vanilla yogurt with the juicy blueberries were just bursting with flavour. Towards the end of the week I had run out of vanilla yogurt and I decided to try some left over cottages cheese that needed to be used. I was pleasantly surprised that the slightly tangy cottage cheese worked really in this otherwise sweet dish. I would also imagine that vanilla frozen yogurt would also work well.

Kevin you take such wonderful photographs, great styling, nice and clean, and you have a great eye. If you have any suggestions I would love it. I am a hippie at heart and love granola, especially like this, but I have always used honey with my yogurt. I am now on a quest to make more granola and use maple syrup this time.

Love the big pieces of pecans! It sounds particularly good with cottage cheese.

I love that. At home, i make it with plain yogurt and honey, my home made granola and berries. I freeze a bunch of blueberries during summer to have this parfait all year long.
