This year, ditch the pre-packaged options and impress your guests with patriotic party snacks made with Little Red Wagon Granola. From refreshing parfaits to sweet and savory delights, our versatile granola becomes the star ingredient in these festive treats that are perfect for a backyard BBQ, potluck, or celebrating at home. Let’s get started on some star-spangled snacking!

Berry Blast Parfaits

Bring a light and refreshing note to your celebration with vibrant Berry Blast Parfaits. Layer creamy yogurt (plain or vanilla for added sweetness) in mason jars. Top with a generous scoop of Little Red Wagon Original or Cosmopolitan granola for crunch. Next, unleash your inner artist! Arrange a layer of fresh blueberries for the “blue,” followed by a cascade of juicy raspberries for the “red.” Finish it off with a sprinkle of toasted coconut flakes for a touch of white and a tropical twist. These patriotic party snacks are a symphony of flavors and textures, perfect for a warm summer day.

Red, White, & Blue Granola Bark

Looking for a fun, interactive snack that’s easy to make ahead of time? Look no further than the Red, White & Blue Granola Yogurt Bark! Melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler (or use a microwave on low power, stirring frequently) until smooth. Spread a thin layer onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. While the chocolate is still warm, sprinkle a generous amount of Little Red Wagon Mocha Granola (or flavor of choice) for a chocolatey crunch. 

Next, add freeze-dried (or fresh) blueberries and raspberry jam for the blue and red. You can even use star-shaped cookie cutters to create a patriotic design. Freeze for at least 30 minutes, then break into bite-sized pieces. For a less-sweet version, swap the melted white chocolate for yogurt and follow the same process. 

Grilled Watermelon With Little Red Wagon Granola Crumble

A delightful twist on a summer classic! Slice a seedless watermelon into thick wedges. Brush each piece lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Grill the watermelon for a few minutes per side, just enough to create a slight char and caramelize the sugars. While the watermelon cools, prepare your patriotic party snack topping. 

Combine equal parts of Little Red Wagon Original Granola and crumbled feta cheese (trust us!) in a bowl. Add a pinch of dried thyme for an extra layer of flavor. Sprinkle the mixture generously over the grilled watermelon for a pleasing contrast of textures and a surprising burst of salty-sweet goodness.

Star-Spangled Smoothies

Who says healthy can’t be festive? Star-Spangled Smoothies are a delicious and refreshing way to fuel your fun. Blend together plain or vanilla yogurt, frozen mixed berries (for the red and blue), a scoop of Little Red Wagon Crunchy Monkey Granola, and a splash of almond milk. Top with a drizzle of white chocolate syrup and a sprinkle of sliced almonds for that finishing “star-spangled” touch. To make it extra special. pour the smoothie into star-shaped molds and freeze for a fun and healthy popsicle alternative!

Summer Salads With Granola Crunch

Round out your spread with a light and flavorful salad. Combine mixed greens, crumbled feta cheese, sliced cucumber, and cherry tomatoes. Dress with a simple vinaigrette (olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper), and top it all off with a generous sprinkle of Little Red Wagon Original Granola for a texture and a touch of sweetness. For a stellar presentation, you can even arrange the salad ingredients in a star shape on the plate!
