Yogurt Parfait

  • 1 cup plain yogurt whole milk, low fat, or non dairy
  • 2 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup fresh berries or fruit of choice
  • ½ cup granola of choice

Microwave Granola

  • cup rolled oats
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp nut butter of choice
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • pinch of salt


To prepare make ahead yogurt parfait:

  • Add yogurt to a wide-mouth mason jar (or airtight container of choice). Sweeten to taste with honey or maple syrup, mixing to combine.
  • Top with fresh berries or fruit of choice.
  • Add microwave granola or granola of choice into an empty, clean applesauce container.
  • Cover container with flat circular piece of mason jar lid, flip, and place lid onto mason jar. Seal with outer band of mason jar lid.
  • If not using a wide-mouth mason jar or if you don’t have an applesauce container, add granola on top last or store separately to prevent from getting soggy.

To make microwave granola:

  • In a bowl, mix together nut butter, maple syrup, water, and salt. (If needed, microwave 10-20 seconds to melt nut butter and help mixture integrate.)
  • Add oats and toss to combine.
  • Microwave 90 seconds. Mix. Microwave an additional 60 seconds, until golden brown and crisp.
  • Allow to sit and cool for 2-3 minutes before serving or storing.
