When I found out California Walnuts was one of the Brunch Week I knew I wanted to make a recipe featuring them.  Who doesn’t like walnuts?  My first instinct was banana bread, and I remembered these Banana Bread Churro Bites I had been wanting to make.  But Mike doesn’t really like nuts in his banana bread.  He might just have to suck it up for this one – churro type banana bread just sounded too good.

 

Then my friend Carrie over at Frugal Foodie Mama made Cookie Butter Walnut Granola and it was all over.  I knew I was going to use her granola for something.  I love homemade granola.  It’s been a favorite of mine ever since I made Coconut Cranberry Granola.  I grabbed some Stonyfield yogurt, one of the 3 packs of strawberries I had bought the week before, and made some super delicious parfaits.  I liked the parfait better fresh, but if you like the granola a little less crunchy, you can let your parfait sit in the fridge overnight.  The strawberry pops with the crunch and creamy vanilla is simple and delicious.  In fact I’m going to make a parfait right now.  Have a great Saturday!
