Roasted Strawberries with Greek Yogurt and Honey Toasted Oats


     Who doesn't LOVE parfaits !!!  Such a fun summer dessert !!!  With Berry season in full bloom, it's hard not to focus on fruit filled recipes !!!  Such is the case today with this WONDERFUL Roasted Strawberry piece of heaven !!!  The nutritional stats are pretty darn good too !!!  Using Dannon Greek Light&Fit yogurt you will have 238  calories, 34g carbs and 18g protein, if you decide to use Fage 2% Lowfat Greek Yogurt then you will have 308 calories, 34g carbs and 26g protein.  Of course, there is 5.3oz in the Dannons and 7oz in the Fage, so that's where the difference comes in.  I will say that 3 of us voted the Dannon Strawberry Greek Yogurt was the sweeter tasting when we experimented with both yogurts today, but I still like the creaminess and tartness of the Fage Yogurt.  It is a much heartier, higher protein lower carb yogurt~ and I kinda like the tang !!!  So its really up to your personal preference, try them both and decide for yourself !!!   ;)

Ingredients~
Greek Yogurt of your choice
1 cup sliced Strawberries
2 teaspoons Date Sugar
1 teaspoon P's Bees Honey ( contact Amy for purchase in the Wichita area for locally made Honey~316-200-0314)
Dash Cinnamon
Dash Paige's Handcrafted Vanilla
1/4 cup Oats
1/2 teaspoon Coconut Oil
Pam Butter

     Mix strawberries with 1 teaspoon Date Sugar and roast in parchment lined cookie sheet at 425 for 15 minutes, or til cooked and juices are beginning to form.  Set aside to cool.  Meanwhile, Spray skillet with Pam Butter and melt coconut oil,~ add oats, 1 teaspoon date sugar, cinnamon and vanilla and cook til oats are light brown and fragrant.  Remove from heat and stir 1 teaspoon honey, set aside.  Put a 1/3 of the yogurt in the bottom of the glass, top with a 1/3 of the strawberries, and repeat.  The last layer, do the yogurt, oats followed by the strawberries on top!  Enjoy  ;)
