- 1 egg white
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups walnut halves
- 4 cups plain Greek yogurt of your choice
- 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
- 2 large bananas, sliced
- 1 cup of cinnamon roasted walnuts, chopped
- Canola oil to grease pan
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Dab a paper towel in vegetable oil and wipe a cookie sheet to grease pan.
Beat egg white and honey together. Mix cinnamon, vanilla, and salt together in a small bowl. Combine with egg mixture. Fold walnuts into the mixture to coat and spread out on greased pan.
Bake until coating on nuts is crusty, about 1 hour. Cool nuts completely. Separate out 1 cup of walnuts for the parfait recipe and save the rest in an air tight sealed container to use in your oatmeal, on salads, or as a snack.
Use one cup of yogurt, 1/2 cup each of bananas and strawberries, and 1/4 cup of walnuts to assemble one parfait. Alternate layers of walnuts and fruit with yogurt.
