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


plain greek yogurt
sprinkle of cinnamon


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?"
