Blueberry Banana Granola Parfait

Here is to a healthy 2015!  This parfait is perfect for breakfast or a light snack and can be made quickly once the granola is finished.  Mix and match the fruit and types of granola to best serve your own preference.  I made a cookie butter granola recently that was fantastic and would be an easy substitute.  I like plain Greek yogurt for its tartness and creaminess which balances the sweet fruit and crunchy granola.

1/2-1 cup Greek yogurt

Dollop half of the yogurt on the bottom of a glass.  Slice banana and layer on top.  Drizzle on honey.  Add granola.  Repeat.

Blueberry Banana Bread Granola 

3 cups oats

1 cup walnuts

1 cup dried blueberries

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

2 bananas mashed

1/4 cup maple syrup

egg white

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, excluding the egg white.

Whip the egg white until frothy and then gently mix it into the other bowl.

Scatter the granola on the pan and cook for 75 minutes.  Break apart the granola into clusters once it has cooled for a couple of minutes.  Since the banana makes the granola have a wetter batter you may need to keep it in the oven longer.
