Assemble parfait layers just before serving, so granola stays crunchy. Substitute any high-fiber cereal you like for the granola. Substitute any diced or sliced fruit for the strawberries.

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