Playing How To Make Almond Butter-Banana Bread Granola Parfait by The Kitchen Twins

The Kitchen Twins' easy homemade granola made from almond butter and banana is the base of these delicious "banana bread" parfaits.

For the granola, Emily and Lyla also recommend adding 1 tablespoon cocoa powder for a chocolate riff or trying a batch with melted coconut oil instead of canola if you want it to taste a little more tropical.


For the Almond Butter Banana Bread Granola:
  • 1 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ cup hemp hearts
  • 1 overripe banana
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • ½ cup almond butter, preferably unsalted and no added sugar
For the parfait:
  • ½ cup Almond Butter Banana Bread Granola
  • ½ to ¾ cup yogurt, preferably plain
  • ½ to ¾ cup fruit, such as raspberries, blackberries, sliced strawberries, or sliced bananas
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate chips, preferably 60% cacao


Serves: 1


For the granola, preheat oven to 325˚F with rack in center. 

In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients together. In a small bowl, mash the banana and stir in the remaining ingredients until smooth. Add the wet mixture to the dry, and stir until evenly combined. 

Spread mixture evenly on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake on center rack for 15 minutes, then stir and bake for 10 minutes more. Cool for 15 minutes. (Makes 4 cups granola; refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use.)

For the parfait and using an 8- to 16-ounce jam jar, layer ingredients starting with the yogurt, then granola, chocolate chips, fruit, and a sprinkle of chia. Repeat layers until it fills the jar.
