Cinnamon Pecan Skillet Granola Yogurt Parfait Recipe with Yoplait Kids

“Disclosure: The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through Platefull Co-Op.”





Have you seen the fun Hello Kitty, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and Minion yogurt from Yoplait Kids yet? We recently saw them in the dairy aisle of our local grocer and my daughter scooped them right up! Yoplait has always been our favorite yogurt brand, and we especially love that there's no high fructose corn syrup and has natural flavors and colors!


My daughter also loves granola along with her yogurt, so we make yogurt granola parfaits all the time! Yogurt parfaits are especially good with homemade granola, and I have the perfect quick skillet granola for you today! It goes perfect with Yoplait Kids yogurt, or as a snack all on it's own!




Cinnamon Pecan Skillet Granola (click here to print recipe)

What you need:
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup pecan chips
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Directions:
In a large non-stick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add brown sugar, vanilla, honey and cinnamon. Stir until combined.

Add the oats, pecans and coconut. Cook for 10-15 minutes, until browned, stirring often to prevent burning. Spread on a parchment lined cookie sheet to cool. 

Once cooled, store in a ziploc bag until using.

To make parfaits:
Layer Yoplait Kids Yogurt, and granola. Serve immediately.
