Apple Crisp Yogurt Parfait

Who doesn't love apple crisp? I decided to make a healthy breakfast version of this fall favorite and I must say- it was pretty hard to share with the 17 month old. This is delicious!! And with barely any added sugar- it's a great and healthy way to jumpstart the day!! 

Apple Crisp Yogurt Parfait 

1- 7 oz greek yogurt (I used Fage)
1/2 tbs butter 

2 cups of cubed apples- skin on 

1/2 cup quick cook oats 
1 tbs maple syrup
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon 
Pinch of nutmeg 

Sauté pan 
Cutting board 
Chopping knife
Measuring cups spoons
Mixing spoon 
Mixing spatula 
Baking tray lined with parchment paper 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Mix the oats and maple syrup until the oats are evenly coated. I did this directly on my lined tray- one less thing to dirty. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges get browned. Remove from oven and cool. 

Heat the sauté pan over medium heat and add the butter. Once melted add the cubed apples. Sauté for a minute then sprinkle with cinnamon and pinch of nutmeg. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the apples are soft but still al dente. You don't want mush- unless you prefer it that way.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes and then layer your greek yogurt with apple mixture and maple oats. You can make this at night and eat the next morning- the oats will just not be as crispy.

This recipe makes one large parfait but can def be split into two smaller ones. I split this with Charlie, the 17 month old. 
I highly recommend making this for you and your kids- it's so dang good!! Xo
