This berry brownie yogurt parfait is layered with Greek yogurt, a thick and gooey triple berry compote, and chewy raw brownie crumbles. 



For the brownie layer

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 Medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds

For the berry compote

  • 3 cups frozen mixed berries (1 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water

For the yogurt layer

  • 4 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. For the brownie crumbles: In the bowl of a food processor, add walnuts and process on high until the nuts are finely ground. Add the cocoa powder and kosher salt. Pulse to combine.
  2. Remove the pits from the dates. Turn on the food processor and as it is running, add the dates one at a time. Stop processing once the mixture is crumbly but easily formable. Add the almonds and pulse several times to combine.
  3. In a small square dish, press the brownie mixture into a layer at least 1 inch thick (even if it does not fill the entire dish), or thicker if desired. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  4. For the berry compote: place the frozen berries, fresh lemon juice, and maple syrup in a skillet over medium heat. Stir for several minutes until fruit is thawed. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with 1 tablespoon water, then pour into skillet and heat until the sauce is thickened.
  5. For the yogurt layer: In a small bowl, mix the Greek yogurt, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  6. To assemble the parfait, layer yogurt, crumbles of raw brownies, and berry compote in a tall glass.
