Lemon Cardamom Granola ( in a parfait!)

These are how I make really simple granola. One of my favourite combinations is lemon and cardamom but you can really have fun and add any mix-ins or flavours you’d like! This was made to complement lemon curd and yogurt in a parfait but you can do ANYTHING once you keep the ratios of dry:wet similar

  • 2 cups rolled oats

[ingredients title=”Parfait”]

I love basic yogurt and granola parfaits, but when I have time I love making it exciting! here are some options including how I made this one!

  • Lemon curd (here!)
  • any fruit curd!
  • meringue (also here!)
  • chia pudding
  • rice pudding
  • sweetened sweet potato puree (seriously!) or pumpkin!
  • a trail mix cookie crumbled instead of granola


This parfait was granola, yogurt mixed with meringue, fresh strawberries, lemon curd and plain meringue on top!
