I have become a breakfast kind of gal; however it has to be something “special.” No boring cereal for me, unless it is steal cut oats and fruit, yum, however that’s another recipe..,. Today we are talkin’ parfaits…
I know you are saying parfait for breakfast?
Why yes we are!
A wonderful mixture of oats, nuts, fruit and Greek yogurt, so yummy and full of everything you will need to start off a great day!
Shelley’s Breakfast Parfait

¼ of granola mixture
½ cup of raw almonds chopped
½ cup of walnuts chopped
1 cup of rolled oats
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
Pinch of cinnamon
2 cups Greek yogurt
2T of honey
½ t of vanilla
2 cups of mixed berries
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a small bowl mix the rolled oats, nuts, syrup and cinnamon and then spread on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown, stirring occasionally for about 15-20 minutes. When done let come to room temperature.
In another small bowl mix the Greek yogurt with the honey and vanilla.
Now it is time to assemble:
Take out your fanciest parfait glass or bowl. *note you should try and enjoy all of your senses surrounding your meal; sight and smell as well as taste. Another little ditty that my nutritionist taught me.
Add ½ cup of the Greek yogurt mixture into the parfait glass or bowl.
Layer ¼ of the granola mixture on top of the Greek yogurt.
Top with the berries and ¼ of the banana
Enjoy with your family, friends, or by yourself… I know you are going to love it!
