These multi-layered granola parfaits not only look beautiful they also make a fantastic, nutritious breakfast and even better lunchbox snack.
Chia seeds pack a nutritional punch: made up of complete protein (containing all eight essential amino acids), lots of Omega-3s and dietary fibre. And let’s not forget the heap of minerals in there, including calcium, magnesium, iron, and phosphorous.
80 g (1 cup) oats
40 g (1/4 cup) pumpkin seeds
40 g (1/4 cup) sunflower seeds
20 g (1/4 cup) shredded coconut

70 g (1/2 cup) almonds, roughly chopped

45 g (3/4 cup) cranberries
Preheat oven at 170 C.
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Combine oats, seeds, shredded coconut, coconut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Spread the mixture out evenly on baking tray and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until starting to become crunchy.
Remove from oven and add all remaining ingredients, mixing to combine. Return to oven and bake for a further 5-10 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
