Ingredients

For the granola:
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup molasses
2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup raisins

For the blueberry sauce:

juice of 1/2 lemon
sugar (2-4 tablespoons, to taste)

For the parfaits:
4 cups plain, nonfat yogurt
2 cups fresh cantaloupe, cubed

Directions

For the granola:
1. Heat the oven to 375°F.

6. The granola can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container for up to three weeks in the refrigerator or at room temperature.

2. Strain through a fine strainer, pressing with a rubber spatula to release the juices.
