Strawberry Banana Granola Breakfast Parfait

There was a time when I didn’t eat breakfast. And I didn’t start eating it because of all the research that says it’s better for your metabolism to eat it. I started eating it because I love breakfast food. A lot of times I will make recipes I can fix at night, then grab and go the rest of the week.

This parfait is made with homemade granola, which is my favorite. For years I bought granola from the store, but after my first try at making it myself, I was hooked. Now I only eat homemade. I think the granola is the highlight of this recipe.

  • 6 large dates, pitted
  • 3 T. natural almond butter
  • 3 T. honey
  • 2 T. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 t. real vanilla extract
  • 1 c. rolled oats
  • ½ t. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ t. salt
  • ¼ c. raw almonds, roughly chopped
  • 2 T. sunflower seeds
  • 2 c. plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 large bananas, sliced
  • 1 c. fresh strawberries, sliced


  1. Pre-heat -oven to 350°F and line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with a piece of parchment paper, leaving a bit of overlap on the sides.
  2. In a high-powered blender or a food processor, combine the pitted dates, almond butter, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  3. Transfer the date mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the oats, cinnamon, salt, almonds, and sunflower seeds. Mix until well combined and the oats and nuts are nicely coated.
  4. Transfer the granola mixture to the prepared baking dish and pat down into an even layer. Place in the pre-heated oven and bake until lightly golden brown and toasted on top, approximately 20 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Granola will crumble as you remove it from the pan, with some larger chunks.
  6. To serve, alternate layers of Greek yogurt, granola, sliced bananas, and fresh strawberries in 4 parfait dishes or mason jars. Enjoy!
