This delicious Pumpkin Parfait recipe is a fall favorite among our readers. That’s probably because it’s got all the quintessential flavors of the season (did someone say pumpkin spice?!) without all the diet plan destruction typical of these treats.

But probably the best thing about this pumpkin-packed healthy recipe is the make-your-own granola. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and savory, and gives the yogurt a sweet and crunchy kick. Plus, it’s not packed with added sugar like so many store-bought varieties.
