Easy Granola Parfaits

Easy Granola Parfaits

I love lazy weekends. Unfortunately, I don’t get very many of them around my house. But when I do, the last thing I want to be doing is spending time making breakfast. I want breakfast to come to me, on a tray, pre-made, and I want it to be delicious. That of course only happens in my dreams. But these easy granola parfaits are a great alternative that can actually happen in reality! Even on a lazy weekend!

There isn’t much to them, really. You’ll need to make up a batch of my Easy Peanut Butter Granola.  You’ll also need some fruit – you can use fresh or thawed from frozen.  And you’ll need some yogurt.  Today I’m using raspberries and blueberries, with vanilla yogurt, for a patriot look for the 4th of July!  But you can use any combination that suits your fancy.

Simply layer your ingredients in a pretty glass or jar – granola, fruit, yogurt, fruit.  Keep building layers until you have filled your container.  Then dig in!

I love the combination of textures in these parfaits!  You get a little bit of crunch from the granola, and little creamy from the yogurt, and a burst of flavor from the berries!

My kids think this is a great alternative to just plain ol’ cereal, and I have to agree.  But it also gets them eating healthy food without them even knowing it!  And my kids will pick these over those store-bought sugar cereals any (and every) day of the week!
