- Yield: 6 Servings
- Preparation Time: 25 Minutes
- Cooking Time: 35 Minutes
- ¼ cup steel-cut oats
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ½ cup coarsely chopped unblanched almonds
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
- 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
- 2 tablespoons flaxseed, coarsely ground
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ¼ cup dried goji berries
- 1 cup granola
- 1 orange juice
- ½ cup Greek-style plain yogurt
- 1 crisp, sweet apple, cored, and coarsely grated
- ⅔ cup hulled and sliced strawberries
- ⅓ cup blueberries
How to Make It
- Preheat the oven to 325°F. Put the steel-cut oats, rolled oats, and almonds in a bowl. Stir in the pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and flaxseed, then the cinnamon, maple syrup, and oil.
- Transfer the granola to a roasting pan, then spread into an even layer. Bake for 30–35 minutes, or until golden brown all over, stirring every 5–10 minutes and mixing any browner granola from the edges of the pan into the center after 15 minutes.
- Stir in the goji berries, then let cool. Pack into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to five days.
- When ready to serve, spoon a scant ½ cup granola into each of two glasses or bowls, keeping a little back for the top. Moisten with the orange juice. Mix the yogurt with the apple and spoon it over the granola, then top with the strawberries and blueberries and sprinkle with the remaining granola.
