Protein parfait with chia seed granola

Makes: 4 parfaits

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes


For the chia seed granola:

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3 tbsp Carrington Farms Organic Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the macerated berries:

  • 1/2 cup strawberries, quartered
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp orange juice

For the protein yogurt:


  1. Preheat the oven to 325° F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Make the granola: In a large bowl, stir together oats, almonds, walnuts, chia seeds, cinnamon, salt, and cardamom. In another bowl, whisk together olive oil, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until everything is well-coated. Spread the granola in an even layer on the baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring about halfway through the baking time. Let cool completely before stirring again. 
  3. While the granola is cooling, stir together the fruit, sugar, and orange juice. Let rest while you prepare the rest of the parfaits. 
  4. In a large bowl, combine the yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and whey powder. Whisk until smooth. 
  5. In small jars or glasses, layer yogurt with berries and cooled granola.
