To make this portable breakfast a snap, prepare the granola in advance and store it in an airtight container. Be sure to keep a close eye on the broiler so the granola doesn't burn. You can also sub pitted fresh cherries or any ripe berry for the raspberries.
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup raw sunflower seed kernels
1/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups plain fat-free Greek yogurt
2 cups raspberries
How to Make It
Place oven rack on middle shelf, about 10 inches below broiler. Preheat broiler to high.
Combine first 7 ingredients on a baking sheet; toss well. Broil 3 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring every 1 minute. Combine butter, honey, and vanilla in a small bowl. Drizzle butter mixture over oat mixture; toss to coat. Broil granola an additional 2 minutes or until well toasted, stirring after 1 minute. Remove granola from oven; cool on pan 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Really flavorful and easy to prepare. I did slightly over-brown it in the last minute so be careful! I only had dry roasted sunflower seeds so I added them as I added the honey mixture. Couldn't find unsweetened coconut at the store so will have to search this out.
This is a delicious recipe - I have quit eating regular boxed ceral and enjoy this instead. It is really good with frozen berries too. Just let them thaw overnight and put them on the parfait in the morning. Don't waste your money buying too sweet granolas...make this instead. It only takes about 15 minutes total. I make a double batch. Be sure to watch it carefully - I almost burnt it in my broiler!
