Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats

  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup, divided
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 cups sliced hulled strawberries

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup cubed peeled kiwifruit (about 3)
  • 2 cups nonfat plain yogurt

Directions

  1. Mix oats and walnuts in 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Combine 1/4 cup of the maple syrup and butter in small heavy saucepan. Bring to boil. Pour maple syrup mixture over oat mixture; stir to blend well.
  2. Bake 10 minutes in a 350°F oven, stirring occasionally. Bake until mixture is golden and crisp, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes longer.

  4. Gently toss strawberries, peaches, blueberries, kiwifruit and remaining 3 tablespoons maple syrup in large bowl to blend.
  5. Divide half of the kiwifruit mixture among 6 parfait or wine glasses. Sprinkle each parfait with half the granola mixture, dividing equally. Top each with half the yogurt. Repeat layers. Serve immediately.
