Granola Parfait Taste Test
Happy Foodie Friday! This recipe comes courtesy of Penny and Eleazar Martinez.
We hope you enjoy!
One of my favorite meals to eat in the morning is a yogurt parfait. Homemade granola certainly was a step up from store bought granola, and it was very simple to make. The flavors of all of the ingredients go very well together to make a light, crunchy, and sweet granola to pair with some Greek yogurt. The best part about this granola recipe is, if you don’t use all of it at your next brunch, you can easily store it to use any time!
