I eat oats in some form for breakfast every single day: overnight oats, hot cooked oats or Greek yogurt with homemade granola! I started this oatmeal tradition in college because the cafeteria scrambled eggs didn’t even come close to rivaling my mom’s. #spoiled

Leery of runny eggs and limp bacon I made my way to the oatmeal station and never left! I ate hot oatmeal every single morning for the next 4 years!

The Oatmeal Guy would see me coming and dish up a big bowl with a generous scoop of raisins and brown sugar.

But I’m not in college any more and some days you have to mix it up. Recently I’ve been obsessing over these Maple Steel Cut Oats Granola. It is absolutely better than any granola I have ever bought.

I like to mix Quaker Oats Steel Cut Oats with Quaker Oats Old Fashioned Oats for the base and then get a little crazy with my dried fruit, nut, and seed add-ins.

And maple syrup. Because, um, maple…heeello?!

While untraditional, the steel cut oats add an extra crunch: they are the heart and soul of this granola. And then you take the most magical granola and layer it with pumpkin Greek yogurt! Prepare to be wowed!

The lightly spiced pumpkin yogurt is unsweetened, which pairs beautifully with the naturally sweetened granola. You will love the contrast between the crunchy Steel Cut Oats Granola and the smooth Greek yogurt.

My husband and I got back from New Zealand late last week, jetlagged and needing a protein and fiber packed breakfast, but I realized that we only had ¼ cup oats! That certainly wasn’t going to cut it! So I rushed to my nearest Target store and stocked up on several containers of Quaker Oats Old Fashioned Oats and Quaker Oats Steel Cut Oats. Aannnd I grabbed some pecans, dried fruit and maple syrup while I was at it. (Thank you, Target!)

30 minutes of “work” (and by work I mean some stirring) and I had breakfast ready for the rest of the week! Just what my jetlagged self needed!

Ingredients

Scale

For the Granola:

  • 2 cups Quaker Oats Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1 cup Quaker Oats Steel Cut Oats
  • ¼ cup nonfat dry milk powder (you can usually find this by the canned milk)
  • ¼ cup toasted wheat germ
  • 2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar (or use light brown sugar, unpacked)
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon dried ginger
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup walnut oil
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup (Grade B)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup tart dried cherries (packed)
  • ¼ cup golden raisins

For the Yogurt:

  • 4 cups 2% Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • large pinch ground ginger

Instructions

Make the granola:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350° F.
  2. Evenly spread the Quaker Oats Old Fashioned Oats and Quaker Oats Steel Cut Oats on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until they are golden brown, stirring once. Pour into a large bowl.
  3. While your oats toast, bring walnut oil, maple syrup and vanilla just to a boil in a small saucepot.
  4. To your oats add dry milk powder, wheat germ, coconut palm sugar, pumpkin seeds and pecans; toss to mix thoroughly. Pour your heated maple syrup mixture over the oat mixture and toss gently to coat evenly. I used two wooden spoons.
  5. Pour the oat mixture back onto your rimmed baking sheet and spread out evenly. Bake 12-15 minutes or until the mixture is golden brown and no longer sticky. (It will still feel wet.) Remove the sheet from the oven and place on a wire rack.
  6. Sprinkle the cherries and raisins evenly over the surface of the granola; toss gently to distribute. Allow to cool completely before touching (or eating).

Assemble the Parfaits:

  1. In a medium bowl mix together yogurt, pumpkin, cinnamon and ginger.
  2. In tall parfait glasses or any other drinking glass, layer the granola with the yogurt, using about 1 cup of yogurt for each parfait.

Notes

This recipe makes about 5 cups of granola, which is way more than you need for the 4 yogurt parfaits. It will keep for up to 3 months at room temperature in a tightly sealed container. I will be shocked if you can resist it that long…
