Blueberry and Honey Parfait


I do realize that this is not a new concept.  However, I felt that it was necessary to document the fact that I ate breakfast this morning.  I can't remember the last time I ate my own breakfast.  I usually just eat the first few bites of The Toddler's breakfast because there just isn't time.  Those of you with little ones know that you have a limited window to get out the door, if you don't, you're staying home.  But not today.  Today I triumphantly and victoriously made (and ate) my own breakfast.  Yes, those adverbs are necessary. 

Blueberry and Honey Parfait

Ingredients:

plain greek yogurt
granola
honey
blueberries
sprinkle of cinnamon

Directions:

Drizzle honey in the bottom and on the sides of a jar.  Layer yogurt, granola, blueberries and sprinkle with cinnamon. (I'm of the notion that something automatically tastes 100 times better in a mason jar).

My favorite type of greek yogurt is Fage.  It's really palatable and doesn't taste so much like a grainy sour cream.  If you absolutely despise plain greek yogurt, use plain yogurt.  The point is to allow the honey to sweeten it without lots of unnecessary sugar.  I used clover honey but if you have access to good local honey go for it!

Don't forget the cinnamon.  I've recently been on a cinnamon and honey kick.  With yogurt, cream cheese, peanut butter...oh especially peanut butter.  It'll make you say, "hello where have you been all my life?"
