Pre-heat oven to 350°F and line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with a piece of
parchment paper, leaving a bit of overlap on the sides.
In a food processor, combine the pitted dates, almond butter, honey,
coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Blend until the mixture is smooth
Transfer the date mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the oats, cinnamon,
salt, almonds, and sunflower seeds. Mix until well combined and the
oats and nuts are nicely coated.
Transfer the granola mixture to the prepared baking dish and pat down into an
even layer. Place in the pre-heated oven and bake until lightly
golden brown and toasted on top, approximately 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Granola will crumble as you
remove it from the pan, with some larger chunks.
To serve, alternate layers of Greek yogurt, granola, sliced bananas, and
fresh strawberries in 4 parfait dishes or mason jars. Enjoy!
