Strawberry Yogurt Parfait

I made this Strawberry and Yogurt Parfait specially for my friend and sending this to her event "Strawberry Preservation Fundas".I wanted to make it simple and healthy and din't add any cream.The recipe is versatile,you can mix and match the ingredients and make your own version.Crushed digestive biscuits mixed with little butter can also be used in place of the granola.

Homemade granola

  • Add vanilla essence to it and mix well.
  • Take the oats in a bowl and add the chopped nuts.Pour the sugar mixture and mix well so that it coats evenly with the oats.
  • Spread this evenly on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake in a preheated oven at 180 ยบ C for about 10 mins.
  • The granola is ready when it turns golden brown and nice aroma comes.
  • Remove the tray from the oven and once it is cooled add the dry fruits you are using and store in an airtight container.
