Last week, I shared one apple-based recipe and one with pumpkin – both bonus recipes in my Perk Up Your Pantry – Fall edition erecipebook. It’s free for a limited time, and you can get yours here.
Today, I’m ending the debate and bringing both flavors together with one snack-tastic recipe…the apple pumpkin granola fall parfait.
When I created the Perk Up Your Pantry erecipebook, my thought was to include recipes that could be enjoyed by themselves, but also easily combined in new ways so your meal plans feel fresh and fun. Which is exactly what I love about this pumpkin harvest granola which is one of the erecipebooks bonus recipes!
You could make this for breakfast or as a snack – even one on the go. To re-create your parfait as I did, you’ll need your favorite variety of fresh apple, my date caramel recipe and the pumpkin harvest granola which can only be found in the Perk Up Your Pantry erecipebook.
The other thing I love is that it shows how easily you can create an indulgent-looking snack (or breakfast!) without any added sugars or dairy products. It’s food that loves you back!
I will add, however, that it’s still wise to eat a well balanced diet – one filled with leafy greens especially. If you go crazy on the carbs – especially added sugars, plant-based fats, processed vegan foods and fruits and veggies with a high naturally-occurring sugar profile, you might not experience the health benefits you’re looking for.
That’s also what you’ll find in the Perk Up Your Pantry erecipebook – a good balance of recipes with sensible, but fun, vegan eating in mind. If you haven’t checked it out yet, the erecipebook includes:
- 5 essential sauce recipes
- 5 essential snack recipes
- 5 easy main dish recipes
- 3 fall-inspired bonus recipes
- A shopping list of all ingredients
