Breakfast Parfait Recipe

Easy Breakfast Parfaits to Start Your Day

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day – but it seems to be the one we skip the most often. It’s sometimes too hard to actually get a meal together, get everyone what they need before they run out the door – and let’s be honest here, it’s hard to find something they all will like. But we found that if we do a little prep work, and make some homemade parfaits they disappear from the fridge and enjoyed before the day gets started.

So grab your ingredients, stock up and make a few of these easy breakfast parfaits and make that morning routine just a little bit easier!

Ingredients:

  • 6 large dates, pitted
  • 3 T. natural almond butter
  • 3 T. honey
  • 2 T. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 t. real vanilla extract
  • 1 c. rolled oats
  • ½ t. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ t. salt
  • ¼ c. raw almonds, roughly chopped
  • 2 T. sunflower seeds
  • 2 c. plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 large bananas, sliced
  • 1 c. fresh strawberries, sliced

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat -oven to 350°F and line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with a piece of parchment paper, leaving a bit of overlap on the sides.
  2. In a high-powered blender or a food processor, combine the pitted dates, almond butter, honey, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  3. Transfer the date mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the oats, cinnamon, salt, almonds, and sunflower seeds. Mix until well combined and the oats and nuts are nicely coated.
  4. Transfer the granola mixture to the prepared baking dish and pat down into an even layer. Place in the pre-heated oven and bake until lightly golden brown and toasted on top, approximately 20 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Granola will crumble as you remove it from the pan, with some larger chunks.
  6. To serve, alternate layers of Greek yogurt, granola, sliced bananas, and fresh strawberries in 4 parfait dishes or mason jars. Enjoy!
