Instructions
ROAST THE RHUBARB:
  1. Preheat the oven to 220 °C or 430 ° F. Trim the ends and cut the rhubarb into finger-sized pieces. Cut vanilla pod lengthwise and scrap the seeds with a teaspoon. Add both seeds and pod to rhubarb pieces together with cardamom, lemon juice, honey and a pinch of salt. Transfer to a baking dish and bake for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. If you like it more mushy, increase the baking time for up to 5 more minutes.
MAKE THE SKILLET GRANOLA:
  1. Combine all the ingredients for skillet granola (see the notes above for substitutions). Cook in a skillet over medium for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until golden brown. Let cool.
MAKE THE CHEESECAKE FILLING:
  1. Whip cottage cheese with Greek yogurt and vanilla extract until smooth.
ASSEMBLE THE CHEESECAKE JARS:
  1. Fill your jars (or individual glasses) with 2-3 tablespoons granola, 3-4 tablespoons of cheesecake filling and top it all with roasted rhubarb. Add a bit of honey if it’s not sweet enough for you. Enjoy!
