Roasted Strawberry Parfaits are a great way to start the day. As long as the type of granola you use isn’t overly sweetened, they are a light and healthy treat. Only a spoonful of brown sugar is used to roast the strawberries and honey is mixed with the Greek yogurt. Evan also loved helping with the assembly.
I made the parfaits with dark chocolate and red berry granola. It paired perfectly with the roasted strawberries. Use your favorite flavor as long as it goes well with strawberries and yogurt.
Roasted Strawberry Parfaits
Adapted from In Sock Monkey Slippers
2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
2 cups plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup granola
mint for garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment.
In a medium bowl, toss strawberries with brown sugar. Spread in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven just until the strawberries release their juices, but have not softened, 12-15 minutes. Transfer the strawberries and juice to medium bowl.
In another medium bowl, combine yogurt and honey.
Place a large dollop of honey yogurt on the bottom of 4 (about 8 ounces each) serving glasses. Top with some strawberries, then granola. Repeat the layers until you reach the top of each glass, finishing with a layer of strawberries and a large pinch of granola. Top with mint for garnish if desired.
