Pumpkin Pie Granola Parfaits

I’m obsessed with parfaits right now. Remember my Blueberry Carrot Cake Parfait? NO?? YOU HAVEN’T TRIED IT?!?! Oh dear lord. You need to. It was by far the best thing I’ve ever eaten. Thank gosh I don’t exaggerate, ever.

Please do not tell me that Lamar and Khloe are getting divorced. Say it isn’t so. How will any relationship last if they can’t make it work?!

I don’t like high wasted pants. And I especially don’t like that they are making a comeback. I don’t think they shape women well. Because they don’t. Don’t act like I’m not right.

Ok, so it’s pumpkin season again. I know this because when I went to Whole Foods the other day, all pumpkin puree was sold out. That’s some bullish*t right there. I needed that pumpkin so I could make this recipe. Hence why it wasn’t posted yesterday. THE BASTARDS. Anywho, since the state of Colorado is flooding and no sunlight is to be seen, it makes me want pumpkin even more. Not sure why, but it must officially be fall. And I know this because I’m craving a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. Please do not give me the run down about needing to support local coffee shops. I get that enough on instagram. And I’m literally sitting in my favorite local coffee shop, Sugar Bake Shop, as I type this. But it doesn’t mean I can’t crave their competition. I want one. I want one bad, make with heavy cream to make it like a warm milkshake. Thanks, Clark. You’re a genius.

My thighs rubbing together have totally ruined the inner lining of my lululemons. Can I send them back and tell them they need to improve their wunder unders for us thicker girls? I don’t even consider myself a thicker girl, but my pants do. And Sergio does. He told me I’ll always be a bigger girl. What is that suppose to mean, Sergio? This f*ckin’ guy.

Ooo before I forget, even though I’ll remind you like 1000x, I will be selling and signing my cookbook coming up October 5th at Sports Authority Field for the Rx Dash ‘n Bash. It’s a competition for ANY CrossFitter. Newbie, professional athlete, whoever. This partner competition is a challenge with over 2 miles of running and 5 workouts with a fun twist. Spectators are welcome to come cheer on their friends and there will be a party awaiting at the finish line. If you want to dress up all weird, that’s supported as well. I’ll be at the finish line selling my book and ready to meet any wonderful people who are ready to eat delicious paleo food!

Pumpkin Pie Granola Parfaits

  • Yield: 4-5 1x



For the pumpkin pie

For the coconut whipped cream

For the granola


  1. Mix together all pumpkin pumpkin pie ingredients together in a bowl until well combined.
  2. In a different bowl, add the coconut cream that sits on top of the coconut water and whip together all coconut whipped cream ingredients until smooth. (leave behind the coconut water for shakes or whatever else)

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Geeze louise Juli, I want that in my mouth right now. Time to make an order of PaleoKrunch (why aren’t they everywhere by now?) FYI my husband love bigger girls…trying to get there with SQUATS AND MILK

  2. I would take your pants into Lululemon. Just make sure you’re washing them right. No fabric softener, cold water, don’t wash with jeans or towels. Your pants should last you 5yrs of wear, if you’re taking care of them properly and theyre not holding up quality wise… Lululemon should damage them out and give you a new pair. Unfortunately it’s always up to your specific Lululemon to make that call. but definitely worth a try! Wow, that was long. Okay – PUMPKIN!!! Yummy yummy yummy.

  3. Ugh I’ve just been dying for something pumpkin…this is perfect! I may need to make a giant “pie” version of this for Thanksgiving, YAY.

  4. I hear you! A Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks is on my itinerary for today. I have a 5 hour drive and a 50% off coupon for Starbucks. How nice of them to send it to me right before my road trip. Its like they knew I would need extra coffee and that I was craving some pumpkin deliciousness.

    I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one who has thighs rubbing together. You seem pretty fit to me, so maybe I’m fitter than I feel like I am somedays, especially the day when I wear shorts. Shorts are always a bad decision. I don’t know why I do that to myself.

  5. Do you use the entire can of coconut milk, or only the cream on the top? This looks awesome!! I get pumpkin stupid this time every year so looking for some better alternatives to my previous Dunkin Pumpkin donut days. Love your blog!!

  6. Wow…thank you for all your hard work and amazing recipes! Getting my kids to enjoy eating Paleo has been quite a challenge, but your yummy recipes give them something awesome to look forward to! We love you!

  7. Had a guy tell me “oh wow, you look a lot different, you got thicker.” It was supposed to be a compliment of some sort but it didn’t reallyyyy feel like it.

    Anyways, same thing went down with my lulus. The inseams look like crap due my thighs rubbing against each other. There should be thigh insurance for clothing or something…

  8. Omg , you make me laugh everyday. I love your book , I don’t know which I enjoy more your hilarious writing or the actual recipes !

  9. YUM! I’ve been reading your plog like crazy, I mean stocker style crazy. First time posting, posting virgin…I LOVE your recipes and you, you save my life when I’m bored at work! I just went to a whole foods for the first time in Austin, HOLY sensory overload, I was a kid in a candy store. Just one question for you today, what kind of maple syrup do you buy that’s paleo friendly..or not;)

  10. I’ve been CRAVING a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks also but can’t have the sugar right now! SO I just awkwardly stare and drool at other people ordering them…

  11. I seriously love reading your posts. I have a friend whose brain seems to work the same way. She jumps from one thought to another and I’ve learned to keep up. It’s fun.

    Thighs rubbing together? Not so great. I’ve had that problem all my life, and, even though I’ve lost weight, my thighs didn’t get the memo. Doing lots of squats probably hasn’t helped, either.
    I don’t even care about the rubbing anymore, I just want them firmer, darn it!

    I got a big can of organic pumpkin puree last week, and wasn’t sure what I’d use it for. I figured since the leaves are already starting to turn here in good ‘ole Summit County, I needed something pumpkinish (totally a real word). Can’t wait to try this!

  12. Do you think you should sub coconut butter or maybe sunflower seed butter? i want to make this for my son to take to school for his birthday but we’re in a nut-free classroom.

  13. Julie. I read your posts over a year now. Today’s post felt little down, like u had a frustrating morning. Hope the day got better 🙂
    The recipe looks delish, will have to try it.

  14. Im sorry but im seriously laughing my ass off that it takes 10 hours to make this i dont even know why thats funny but it just really is. Its been a long week.anyway the pumpkin pie stuff looks really good i might make that for a snack and skip the granola. Thanks for making me laugh like an idiot, you should probably chnage that though, or not so i can laugh for another ten hours lol (its funny because i said ten hours, get it?)

      1. So I had left my canned coconut milk in the fridge for one of your fruit bars. when I went and opened it to scoop the cream out I didn’t have a cream that formed. Does this work best with certain coconut milks. I bought 365 coconut milk light from whole foods. Recommendations?

        1. That happens with some coconut milks which is super annoying. Whole foods also has thai kitchen coconut milk, get that kind next week. Or if you have a sprouts, they have coconut cream next to the coconut milks, then you don’t even have to refrigerate it!

  15. JULI! I’m attempting this TONIGHT! i’m a huge pumpkin pie fan, but i’m not a fan of waiting for an actual pie to cook. because this has almost no cook time, its perfect!

    Gracias love!



  16. Daaaaannnngggg that looks delicious!! 🙂 Yeah I would feel the same way if it were raining and stuck inside the house chillaxin. Except I prefer sweet potato versus pumpkin. I might try to make this with sweet potatoes instead. Have you ever tried? Anyways cool recipe and like the attitude. Ha ha

  17. First of all, I made this today. Amazing. Thank you!

    Next of all, my Wunder Unders are all pilled inside the thighs, too. BUT MY UNDERARMOUR LEGGINGS ARE STILL LIKE BRAND NEW, even after a year of almost constant wear.

    I’ve given up on Lulu entirely. UA, though… well, my UA cropped leggings are my spirit garments.

  18. I already had my one pumpkin spice latte of the year (dairy does not agree with me or my breastfed daughter) and now I want another one with heavy cream. Thank you for that.

    My boyfriend also reacted to the ’10 hours’ comment LOL

  19. So excited to try this! Like so many, I crave pumpkin everything this time of year! Just this weekend, I made two different kinds of pumpkin-y deliciousness.

    On a serious note, Juli, have you been impacted by the flooding? Hope all is well in your world!

  20. Hot damn this recipe is amazingly tasty!

    Instead of maple syrup in the filling, I soaked 10 dates over night and whipped all the ingredients in my blender. I also used ground cloves instead of allspice because that’s how I roll.

    Awesome results. Thank you.

  21. Juli, you’re awesome. You are my first paleo blog I follow, and it’s awesome that you’re in Denver too.

    Question for you, do you know anywhere to find the ingredients list of foods online? I am currently working at an office where they will pick up my lunch, but no one else has as many restrictions as I do. I want to give them some commercial/pre-packaged foods that are handy, but I don’t want to spend an entire saturday afternoon at the grocery store.

    Any tips? (Other than pack my own food, because while that’s handy some of the time, I’d love to cut down my food bills and have them pay for some of it!)

    1. i like to cook in bulk and lots of stuff in the crockpot. that way i have food for the week and don’t have to run back in the middle of the week and spend more money!

  22. Hi Juli!!

    I spent most of last night engulfed in your “Rants” section of your blog.. I just love reading all of your posts! I think they are honest, real, personable, and best of all, HI-LAR-I-OUS!!!!! One that really go to me was the “How CrossFit & Paleo Took Over My Life”. I really appreciated your honesty and felt that in some way, I could relate. It makes me sad that you don’t always see how awesomely fit and strong you are (regardless of if your lulu pants rub!!!).

    Long story short, I was doing my daily blog reading today and came across one of Sarah Fragos’s post on Everyday Paleo. It made me think of you. You NEED to read this – my hope is that it will remind you of how awesome, strong, and beautiful you are! 🙂 The post is titled “What you don’t see”.

    Anyhow thank you for the continuos entertainment, laughter, and delicious recipes!!

  23. Hey,

    Just wondering if you have any ideas for a substitute for the PaleoKrunch? Just checked their site and it’s gonna cost $40 to ship to Canada and I definitely can’t justify that no matter how delish this recipe sounds :(( Please help!! 🙂

      1. Omgosh! Ok, so I made this & it was Suuuper Yummy!
        Make couple of adjustments: used your granola recipe instead of paleo krunch; and made half coconut cream and half cashew cream (whipped up both together in blendtec, with maple syrup and vanilla).
        It was such a delightful treat. Thanks Juli.

      2. Totally did this with your pumpkin granola recipe. It was delicious! Brought it in to share with my fellow paleo coworkers and they loved it too! Thanks for all your wonderful recipes!

  24. I am a “thicker thigh” gal and i had a pair of lululemon pants that wore a lot in the crotch region. I read somehwere or was told by someone that they would exchange them. I think I had them for less than a year …they exchanged then for a totally new pair! They told me they has issues with some of the styles. I have another pair that I have had for probably 5 years that didn’t wear like these did. Try it out, im sure they would work with u! Ps. I love all of yoru recipes!! I’m looking to have lower calorie intake and lose some weight before I try some of them, but they all look amazing!!

  25. I am really surprised the pumpkin doesn’t get cooked at all…I always find that uncooked canned pumpkin has a very “raw” taste. Is that true here? Or do all the other ingredients make taste not raw?

  26. Alright.. So I’ve been stalking you and your blog for about a month and it’s so crazy I never knew what “paleo” was but had in fact been eating paleo since I was at least 16 (now 21). You helped me jump into crossfit and I want to thank you for that because it is truly a slice of heaven and the results with eating this way are just under estimated in society.

    Anyway.. Now that I’m done basically praising your gifts I JUST made this and I want to take a bath in it. Really. Thank you.

  27. I made these a couple nights ago and made my own paleo granola to go with them. It made a few so they have been sitting in the fridge and it’s nice to have a treat to look forward to. This morning I had one for breakfast…who doesn’t need a treat to start the day;)

  28. Hey Juli! SOooo this is probably a really dumb question…AND im sure the answer is somewhere in the posted comments, maybe! but im at work trying to type this as fast as i can so i dont get caught being unproductive….im really realllly new at this paleo diet. doing it because i have RA and will try anything before having to go on medication for it! anyway..my question…is coconut milk the same as coconut water? you said to skim the milk off the top and use the water for whatever else. im sorry im confused. i though coconut milk was thick and all white. cause i used it to make that alfredo sauace recipe of yours! (btw i love your blog!) …anyway….so is it the same? i know its a ridiculous question. but educate me please if you would? :/

    1. hey brittney!! no worries, it’s a bit confusing if you haven’t ever done it. or used the right coconut milk. try using thai kitchen coconut milk, put it in the fridge overnight. when you open it, you’ll have a hard mixture on top which is coconut cream. the cream and the water separate, so the water is at the bottom. you remove the cream with a spoon and that is the whipped cream. does that make sense?

  29. Just made four of these delicious little parfaits… Good thing they are in separate bowls, because portion control has never been one of my strong suits.

    I had some leftover roasted and spiced pumpkin that I didn’t know how to use up, so I cut it off the skins and blended it. I also used your granola recipe instead of the kind you called for.

    Anyways, AMAZING.
