Ingredients
  

  • 6 lg dates pitted
  • 3 T natural almond butter
  • 3 T honey
  • 2 T coconut oil melted
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ t ground cinnamon
  • 1 scoop Whey Protein
  • ¼ t salt
  • ¼ cup almonds raw, roughly chopped
  • 2 T sunflower seeds

Parfait Ingredients

  • 2 cups plain greek yogurt
  • 2 lg bananas sliced
  • 1 cup strawberries sliced

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 350°F and line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with a piece of parchment paper. Leave a bit of overlap on the sides of the pan.
  • In a high-powered blender or a food processor, combine the pitted dates, protein powder, almond butter, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Transfer the date mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the cinnamon, salt, sunflower seeds, oats, and almonds.
  • Mix until well combined and the oats and nuts are nicely coated.
  • 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.
  • Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Granola will crumble as you remove it from the pan, with some larger chunks.
  • To serve in parfait, alternate layers of Greek yogurt, crunchy granola, sliced bananas, and fresh strawberries in 4 parfait dishes or mason jars. Enjoy!
