Remember the Banana Maple Granola I made at the beginning of the week? I decided it would be a good idea to layer it between spoonfuls of Greek yogurt and slices of bananas to create a breakfast–or snack–parfait.

Bam, breakfast is served!

This is one of those no-recipe recipes, if that makes any sense. Since parfaits are extremely easy to construct, we won’t worry about ingredient amounts for this recipe. So, go wild and add as much or as little as you like. It’s like running around with you’re undies off. Ya feel free, don’t ya?

Yup, this is a food blog and we’re talkin’ about undies. We’re all friends here, right?

You can use any type of yogurt you prefer. I happen to love Greek yogurt, so that’s what I used in my parfait, banana to be exact.

Grab your yogurt, a few scoops of granola, a banana, and some honey. You can get fancy and layer your parfait in a fancy glass, or you can grab a small to-go bowl for easy travel.

Add a few spoonfuls of yogurt to the bottom of your glass/bowl. Sprinkle with a handful of granola and add a layer of sliced bananas. Drizzle with honey. Repeat as needed until your glass/bowl is full.

The combination of the banana maple granola with with sliced bananas and honey create a parfait that tastes just like banana bread. It’s creamy, crunchy, and slightly sweet.

    This looks like such an awesome snack!! I love parfaits but rarely think to make them on a normal basis, which is silly because I have everything on hand pretty much all the time to do it!
