Show and Tell ~ Giant Strawberry Granola Parfait

This very large, near perfect strawberry looks extra big cradled in these sweet little hands.
It is about to become part of a yogurt parfait!
my favorite recipe for:
Recipe courtesy Alton Brown Show: Good Eats Episode: Oat Cuisine

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup cashews (or nuts of choice)
  • 3/4 cup shredded sweet coconut
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, and brown sugar.
In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, oil, and salt. Combine both mixtures and pour onto 2 sheet pans. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.
Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl. Add raisins and mix until evenly distributed.

Beautiful strawberries. The parfait looks delicious.

That strawberry does look perfect and HUGE! Great idea to use it with the granola - I appreciate you sharing the recipe! I haven't made homemade granola in a while - it is time. Would make a great gift to my son - who no longer lives at home - just a little mothering :)
God Bless,

whose hands were holding the strawberry? jared's? crazy!

I've made Alton's granola before and have given the recipe to many friends...it's awesome! I usually use dried cranberries or blueberries instead of raisins, and almonds/pecans for the nuts. It makes a great hostess or teacher gift when packaged in a pretty jar or bag.
