  • 5 cups rolled oats (please do not use instant oatmeal as the results does vary!)
  • 1 cup dessicated coconut
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or broken chocolate pieces
  • 1/2 cup nuts ( I usually include chopped almonds or walnuts)
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 tsbp orange peel
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil or melted butter
  • 1/2 cup clear runny honey
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 vanilla pod or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • For the parfait:
  • 1 cup homemade Greek style yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Granola (recipe above)
  • 3 tbsp Seville orange marmalade
  • a handful of de-shelled pistachios
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • a handful of pomegranate seeds


  1. Preparing the granola:
  2. In a big mixing bowl, mix the rolled oats, salt, vanilla, orange peel, chopped nuts and dessicated coconut. Preheat the oven to 170C.
  3. In a saucepan, mix the oil, brown sugar and honey and let the mixture simmer until boiling point.
  4. Pour the honey mixture into the oats and combine well until all the dried ingredients are coated with the oil mixture.
  5. Spread the oats on to the baking sheet and bake them for 20 minutes, rotating the trays twice whilst baking.
  6. Once remove from the oven, quickly pour the oats back into the mixing bowl and throw in the dried cranberries, raisins and chocolate chips (or chocolate pieces). Mix well until the chocolate is slightly melted.
  7. Once cooled, store the granola in an airtight container and this should last for about 2 weeks.
  8. Now comes the exciting part..make the parfait!
  9. In a clear glass, fill 1/3 of the glass with yogurt.
  10. Generously layer the marmalade followed by a spread of granola.
  11. Layer it again with yogurt followed by honey and granola.
  12. Spread some yogurt on top and sprinkle the pomegranate seeds and pistachios for garnishing.
