Coconut Vanilla Almond Granola Parfait

October 10, 2018

I’ve been looking to make my meals more cost effective and less processed. So lately, I’ve been focusing on cheap ingredient and seeing how many ways I can use it. My ingredient of choice  to do this project is  Oatmeal. I’ve had oatmeal in many forms but there were two forms that were my favorite and made the best meal prep breakfasts. I’m all about saving money but when it saves money and cuts down on time in the kitchen, I’m all for it! First up: Coconut Vanilla Almond Granola Parfait.

What’s great about this recipe is that a majority of the ingredient can be bought in the bulk section of your favorite grocery store. So based on what you already have on hand in your pantry, it can literally cost close to nothing to make. For me, I spent about 6 dollars to create this batch and it made about 14 servings. With enough leftovers to make another batch. I made this granola with the sole purpose to be a crunchy topping to my yogurt, but this can definitely be eaten as a granola cereal. Check out the recipe below:
