It is finally fall and I am embracing it 110%. Bring on every recipe with cinnamon, apples, nutmeg, pumpkin… you name the flavor and I’m cooking and baking with it. Hence, this fabulous fall parfait!
I mean putting granola, yogurt, dried cranberries, apples, pumpkin seeds, and nutmeg together – that is just a recipe for the kings in heaven.
I made this fall parfait recipe last night for my bible study. I have started doing something new with the women I gather with. We are gathering around the table because that is the most important part of any group of women that gather to encourage and uplift and pray over each other. The table is the perfect place for that.
I love what Romans 8:1 says – There is, therefore, now no condemnation for those that are in Christ Jesus.
Sitting around a table helps bring vulnerability, openness, and encourage honesty and deeper friendship. None of those things are negative and all include being stewards of God’s Word. Check out more inspiration here.
Are you sitting around the table often? Do you enjoy a meal with friends and family regularly? If not, start. If you do, what makes those moments special? It’s most likely not the food – it’s the people, the memories, the laughter, and stories.
But what helps gather people around the table… food! See you don’t remember what the food is, you don’t remember how good or bad it was – just that there was food. And in this case – a Fall Parfait!
Last night, I was running short on inspiration and time – so breakfast it was. I made this epic granola parfait and just threw some things together and viola it was delicious!
You see, that is the importance in cooking – having the confidence to enjoy throwing things together and tasting as you go! I promise… it’s hard to mess up!
This granola used a little bit of everything so I hope you try it out and if you make your own version – tag me, I’d love to see it!
So do me a favor. When you love this recipe as much as I do, will you post about it? Will you tag me on Instagram or Facebook? Will you share this post with your friends? I hope you do!Print
Cinnamon and Apple Parfait
When seasons start changing, there is nothing better then a Cinnamon and Apple Parfait to start the morning and get you in the Fall spirit. This yogurt and granola mixture will have you happy all day!
The thing about this recipe is it’s not perfect. Use as much or as little as you want and don’t hesitate to add whatever you want.
- Vanilla Yogurt – I used an entire 16 ounce container
- Nature Valley Granola bites – but use whatever you want!
- Roasted Almond slivers
- Dried Cranberries – 1/2 cup
- Salted Pumpkin seeds – 1/4 cup
- Coconut Flakes – sprinkled
- A drizzle of Honey
- Apple Slices (1 apple should be enough)
- 1 tablespoon of Cinnamon and Nutmeg sprinkled on top
- Fill a bowl with yogurt. A shallow, but wide bowl works best for a parfait.
- Top the yogurt with granola then Almond slivers and cranberries
- Add the coconut flakes and then the pumpkin seeds.
- Add slices of Apples
- Finally drizzle honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg on the top!
