Easy Yogurt and Granola Breakfast Parfaits (Three Ways)

Easy Granola Yogurt Parfaits

I’ve got a new favorite way to start the day. It’s fast, easy, light and incredibly satisfying. Not to mention completely adaptable to whatever I’m in the mood for that morning.

Lately I’m all about quick and easy granola and breakfast parfaits made with either lemon curd, jam, or fresh fruit. They help keep my morning simple, my tummy full, and my taste buds happy.

If you want to keep it as simple as possible, you can use all store-bought ingredients. But if you want to make your parfaits completely homemade (and you should at least once, because it does make a difference), I’ve got some recipes to help you get started.

I have yet to make my own yogurt, and I think I’m going to have to try it soon!

Breakfast and I have always had a sort of on-again, off-again relationship. And now that I have a baby that loudly demands a satisfying breakfast first thing in the morning, it’s gotten even more tricky. I need something we’re both going to enjoy, and fast. These granola and yogurt parfaits are the perfect solution. I keep all the  components on hand and putting them together takes a matter of moments. I can even make a to-go version to hand to my husband as he heads out the door for work.

Thanks to this wonderful combination of crunchy granola, tangy yogurt and fruit, breakfast and I are best friends again. What’s your favorite quick and easy breakfast?
