Savory Yogurt Parfait Cucumbers Chickpeas

Savory Greek Yogurt Parfait, Cucumber Chickpea Salad

Granola is one of those foods that masquerades as healthy, but is often loaded with simple sugars. However, if you've got half an hour, we recommend making your own nutritionally-balanced blend. You'll be hard-pressed to find whole grains (other than oats) in your store-bought version, but we've found that quinoa is a crunchy addition. We recommend making Savory Quinoa, Seed, and Oat Granola to top your Cucumber Chickpea Yogurt Parfait (recipes below). 

For something on the sweeter side, we've got Quinoa, Oat, Sunflower Seed, Dried Fruit Granola. Snack on a small handful or add a little crunch to our tropical whole grain parfaits

Savory Quinoa, Seed, and Oat Granola

Use this sweet and salty granola to add crunch to yogurt parfaits, tossed salads, burrito bowls, and everything in between.
