Salted Maple Granola and Jam Parfait

Salted Maple Granola and Jam Parfait

Repeat after me: I should make my own granola. Did you say it?! Homemade granola is so easy and delicious. It's so nice to have on hand or even to put in a jar and give as a gift. This granola is very salty but has a delicious maple taste that makes it so addicting. I love sprinkling mine on top of delicious yogurt with a dollop of my favorite jam. I usually drizzle a little honey or throw in chia seeds if i'm feeling wild. This is a delicious way to enjoy any of our jams!

Ingredients for granola:

  • 3 cups of rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup of shredded coconut flakes
  • 1 cup of sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil or vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 teaspoons of almond extract
  • 2.5 teaspoons of seasalt
  • 1 cup of dried cherries (or other dried fruit of your choice)

For the parfait: 

  • Greek Yogurt
  • AJC Jam (I used Jampagne)
  • Honey
  • Chia seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl add the oats, coconut flakes, almonds, and sunflower seeds.
  3. In a small bowl combine the oil, syrup, brown sugar, salt, and almond extract.
  4. Pour the oil mixture over the oats and mix well.
  5. Spread your future granola out on to the baking sheet.
  6. Bake stirring occasionally for 20-25 minutes. Watch very closely so that it does not get too crispy at the end. Your house will smell soooo delicious asa this cooks.
  7. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely. It will harden even more as it cools. Don't forget to try a sample while it's still warm.
  8. Mix in dried cherries and then store in an airtight container, I use mason jars for mine.
  9. When you are ready for your parfait add the yogurt, jam, honey and chia seeds in a bowl. Top with your delicious fresh granola. Enjoy!
