It works well as a cereal, snack, on top of yogurt parfait or a garnish on a dessert.

Here is an idea to use the granola as a dessert topper. Choose a couple of fruits, unsweetened coconut flake and drizzle with a good balsamic vinegar.

Yogurt Parfait

Please Follow Deliciously Inspired on Bloglovin

Yogurt parfaits are always a welcome breakfast or dessert.  They are especially delicious when a homemade granola is utilized.  Try Quinoa Granola or pick up a granola at the grocery store.  I like to use a plain yogurt – this way I can use a fruit spread to make it any flavor I want.  Greek yogurt can also be used.

This is very versatile and can be switched up by using a different fruit spread and fresh fruit.

Quinoa Granola

Quinoa is a great source of protein so I was excited when I saw a recipe using this grain in a granola.  I made a few changes to the recipe and was pleasantly surprised how good it is.  Granola can be used as a cereal, in a yogurt parfait, or sprinkled on top of a garden salad or  pancakes.
