Cinnamon and Mixed Nut Granola with Yogurt and Berries

I recently had the most delicious granola on our cruise ship and I came back determined to try to make my own version. This granola has less oats and more nuts, which I love because it provides more protein and a wonderful toasty flavor. The plain yogurt provides an even more protein and the berries give this breakfast a perfect pop of color. I sweetened my yogurt with agave, but feel free to use your favorite sweetener (or leave it out).




1. Preheat oven to 300. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts and coconut. Add honey, coconut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt and stir to combine. Spread granola in an even layer on the prepared baking sheets and bake for 45 minutes. Once out of the oven, allow the granola to come to room temperature.

3. Scoop yogurt into glasses or parfait cups and drizzle with agave. Top with granola and berries. Repeat with one more layer of yogurt, agave, granola and berries.
