3 cups rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup agave syrup
1/4 cup sunflower oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and hemp seeds. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, agave syrup, sunflower oil, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, ground cardamom, and vanilla extract until well combined.
Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until everything is evenly coated.
Spread the granola mixture in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the granola turns golden brown, stirring halfway through to ensure even baking.
Remove from the oven and let the granola cool completely on the baking sheet. It will continue to crisp up as it cools.
Once cooled, break the granola into clusters.
In serving glasses or jars, start layering the parfaits. Begin with a spoonful of vanilla yogurt at the bottom.
Add a layer of the crunchy baked granola on top of the yogurt.
Sprinkle a handful of crushed pistachios over the granola layer.
Spoon a dollop of strawberry preserves onto the pistachios.
Repeat the layers—yogurt, granola, pistachios, and strawberry preserves—until the glasses or jars are filled to the desired amount.
Finish off with a final sprinkle of granola and a few crushed pistachios on the top for an enticing presentation.
Serve and enjoy these delightful Crunchy Granola Parfaits, with layers of creamy vanilla yogurt, crunchy granola, nutty pistachios, and luscious strawberry preserves.
