Today I’m teaming up with Bob’s Red Mill and Stonyfield Yogurt to bring you this Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Granola Parfait. As a Stonyfield YoGetter ambassador, I love sharing new recipes and ideas we use and will help you eat healthier everyday. As always, the opinions I share are my own. I have received complimentary Stonyfield yogurt and products from Bob’s Red Mill to try out for this recipe.
FALL = PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING
September 1st brings pumpkin spice EVERYTHING!!! It’s one of the things I know many of you look forward to. One of the grocery stores here comes out with a whole display full of pumpkin this and pumpkin spice that. One of the seasonal favorites in our house is a Pumpkin Spiced Cereal. It’s a whole grain “O” shaped cereal that has a touch of sweetness to it. The inspiration for these Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Granola Parfaits comes from that cereal.
Homemade granola is something that I’ve been doing for years! It’s really easy to make and has just a few ingredients. The pumpkin spice granola recipe I’m sharing with you is gluten free and can be easily modified by switching up the spices or wet ingredients. Try substituting Spiced Apple Butter or Lemon Curd instead of the pumpkin purée for a completely different version.
My at home granola recipe is healthier than anything I can buy at the store. It’s also much less expensive to make granola at home.
We like to take granola with us when we go hiking and when we travel. It’s easy to eat by itself and is a great addition to yogurt or ice cream.
BOB’S RED MILL
Bob’s Red Mill has great, wholesome products. I have been buying their flour for years and recently started using their gluten free steel cut oats. Steel cut oats are less processed and have a great texture in oatmeal. Because these oats are less processed, they require a little more cooking time. I really like cooking it in my Instant Pot because it cuts the cook time in half and provides my kids with a healthy breakfast before they go off to school.
This recipe is using gluten free Steel Cut Oats and Traditional Oats from Bob’s Red Mill. The combination gives a great texture to your granola. The coconut sugar I’m using is also theirs. I’ve heard good things about using coconut sugar, but this is the first time I’ve used it. It can be used in equal proportions to cane sugar and seems to have the same amount of sweetness. Have you tried it before?
GF PUMPKIN SPICE GRANOLA PARFAITS
Today’s recipe is a healthy treat that can be enjoyed at breakfast, lunch, as a snack, or as a dessert. It’s made with Stonyfield Grassfed yogurt.
This is one of the type of yogurts I really like. It’s a little thinner than traditional yogurt, but is still creamy. The parfaits are assembled by layering granola and yogurt in a bowl or glass. The parfait is “pretty” enough for a party. I recently served these when my daughter had a sleepover. The girls loved these parfaits served in pint sized Mason jars. They felt like they were getting a treat. You’ll enjoy them too!
