Ingredients

Quick Stovetop Granola

  • 40 g raw almonds chopped very finely
  • 40 g rolled oats
  • 1 small pinch fine sea salt
  • 5 g butter melted
  • 2 tsp unpasteurised honey
  • ¼ tsp almond extract

Vanilla Whipped Cream

  • 150 ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp unpasteurised honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Assembly

  • 2 serving glasses 250 ml
  • 3 small easy peelers or mandarin oranges segmented
  • 2 small mint leaves optional

Method

Quick Stovetop Granola

  1. Tip the almonds, oats, and salt into a small saucepan and toast over medium-low heat, tossing frequently to avoid burning, until they begin to smell nutty and look browned.
  2. Turn off the heat and add the butter, honey, and almond extract. Stir quickly to combine, making sure to cover the nuts and oats completely.

  3. Dump the granola onto a baking sheet and spread it out. Allow the granola to cool completely before using in the parfaits.

Vanilla Whipped Cream

  1. Using an electric or hand whisk, whip the cream until it forms stiff peaks. Fold in the honey and vanilla extract.

Assembly

  1. Place 2 ½ tablespoons of cooled granola in the bottom of each serving glass, spread evenly.
  2. Add ¼ of the whipped cream to each glass and level the tops.
  3. Arrange ½ the mandarin segments on top of the cream, reserving a couple nice ones for topping.
  4. Divide the remaining whipped cream between the two glasses. Sprinkle over a little extra granola and top with the reserved orange segments.
  5. Serve immediately.

Notes

These parfaits are best consumed the day they are made. You can make the granola up to 2 days in advance; it will keep at room temperature sealed in an airtight container.
