Granola Covered Blackberries & Dark Chocolate Recipe
High protein parfait for breakfast? It’s a great combination of fresh fruits, nonfat Greek yogurt and crunchy granola. Perfect healthy breakfast on the go.
This blackberry and strawberry parfait recipe has 3 layers, which you can assemble the way I am, or as you wish. Also, it can be assembled in any container you want. I use these glass jars because they are very practical.
Berries play a major role in this recipe, so make sure the ones you get are ripe enough, juicy and sweet.
Wash and drain the berries well. Remove the stems from strawberries, then chop them into slices or small chunks. To assemble the parfaits, layer the three components starting with adding fresh strawberries and blackberries in the bottom of parfait glasses. Then add greek yogurt and finally granola. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top if you like.
If you want to boost a level of protein, you can add a little bit of collagen or flavored protein powder of your choice to the greek yogurt.
Chill parfaits for 2 hours in the fridge before serving, and they are ready for sweet enjoyment. It tastes as good as they look, trust me!
This parfaits recipe is very customizable, so you can add fruits or other ingredients of your choice. You can add fresh raspberries, peaches, blueberries, or bananas. As long as the fruit is fresh, the dessert will be great. Also, try to make your own homemade granola and use it in this combination for breakfast.
Parfait doesn’t have to be just breakfast, you can also use this recipe for a healthy dessert. Many desserts require baking in the oven, but this is a great, very easy recipe that does not require much time to make.
It is also a great dessert that you can make for someone, if you do not have a lot of skills for making desserts that are complicated.
- cacoa semi-sweet chips (your preference of percentage of “darkness”)

Stick the blackberry with a wooden skewer or fork, and then dip them in the chocolate.
Pour granola in a bowl or plate. Roll the blackberry covered in chocolate in the granola.
Place the blackberries on a wax sheet or plastic container and then place them in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
