We love breakfast around here.  We are definitely NOT one of those families that skip breakfast :)  Whether it’s  Sausage Gravy and Biscuits, Breakfast Burritos or my favorite – Eggs Benedict {yummo!}  As much as I love a hot breakfast, mornings can be hectic and we can’t eat Breakfast Burritos every morning.

Another option that the boys ADORE are my Honey Vanilla Parfaits.  I make them the night before and they’re ready to go the following morning.  Depending on who it’s for, the granola can be added to the jar in the morning or gets put in a little baggie to be added at work.  I use my very favorite yogurt, Tillamook Vanilla Bean yogurt for my parfaits.  {Bryce likes the Marionberry!}

Tillamook’s Vanilla Bean yogurt is sooo good and although it’s perfect lovely on it’s own, it really makes a difference when making up these parfaits.   You can actually see the specks or real vanilla in the yogurt – it’s just delicious!

Ingredients for Honey Vanilla ParfaitsFor each parfait:

  • 1 6oz Tillamook yogurt
  • 2 tsp-2 Tbls honey
  • 2-3 Tbls granola
  • 1/4 cup frozen or fresh berries
  • jar

I like to make up the parfaits in jars because it looks so pretty and feels like a real treat.  I use jelly jars, artichoke jars, you name it.  Wash and recycle people!  {Use one of my two easy methods for removing jar labels too!}

Assembly:

Depending on the size of your jar, you will make 2-3 layers.  Start by spooning 1/3 of the yogurt into a wide-mouth jar.   Follow with 1 tsp-1 Tbls honey {depends on your preference for sweetness – we do 1 Tbls ;) } Then add 1 – 2 Tbls berries.

Layer 1-2 more times until the jar is almost filled.  You want to leave a little room to add the granola later.  Close up the jars and put them in the fridge.  If you are using a mason jar, place the lid on the jar, fill a small plastic bag with the granola, place the bag over the lid and then screw on the band over the plastic bag.

Then when you’re ready to eat, add the granola and enjoy!

  5. SO yummy!

  6. I love that these are make ahead – my kids wake up starving and I never have time to make anything before they go crazy. I’d love to have you come and link up at Taste and Tell Thursdays!!

  7. My 5 year old’s exact words, “Oh! That’s just tempting me!”

  8. Tasty! We never miss breakfast around here, either. And I love a quick and simple breakfast once in a while!

  9. Love them! They look so good! Pinned them! Angie xo

  11. great idea! especially for a to go breakfast!

  12. These look wonderful! I’m always so busy in the mornings so it’s great they can be made ahead of time. I featured them on my blog today! You can check it out and grab a button here: http://practicallyfunctional.net/2013/01/the-fun-in-functional-link-party-34/

  13. Yum. And what a great idea ~ one I’m storing away. Thanks for posting. {I’m popping in here from the Lil’ Luna link party.} Have a great day.

  14. What a great idea! My teenagers often complain that there is ‘nothing GOOD for breakfast’ during the week, when they’re in a hurry, and this will be something both girls can agree on! The hubs and me, tipi, come to think about it.

  15. Look delicious and healthy. Thank you for sharing. Pinning.

  16. Mmm Delicious looking and genius idea! Thanks for sharing!

  17. Well these look delicious!

  21. Brilliant for the reminder to use recycled glass jars! I will pick up frozen berries tomorrow at the store!! :)

  22. cant find the brand of yogart in my area. can u use any yogart for it and do you have the nutrition info on this?

  23. Love it. Sounds yummy too. It’s more nutritional depending on what ingredients we use. Thank you for sharing. I love the jar thing.

    We may have met by chance…but we become friends by choice.

    I just came across your blog via Pinterest and love it! My boyfriend is in school and never seems to have time for breakfast and these would be PERFECT! You said you make them the night before…. but I was wondering how long you think these would last refrigerated? Maybe go off the yogurt expiration? We don’t live together so my thought is to make enough for a week and leave them in the fridge for him to grab and go. What do you think?

  25. Hi Trish,

    These look delicious! I’m going to make them tonight, though I only have Stonyfield Greek yogurt on hand, I’m sure it will work just as well. I was wondering if you thaw the frozen berries first so they aren’t too juicy, or just throw them in frozen?

    Thanks so much for sharing!
    Chris

  26. I’d love to do these but make a bunch for the week. Ever freeze them? I wonder how the yogurt would do frozen?

  27. Did you ever find out if these freeze well or how long they would hold up in the fridge?
