apple pie yogurt parfait


declaring the month of september, the month of apple pie inspired recipes (that aren't actually apple pie). i can't stop eating ALL the apples & breakfast is no exception. i just love bringing fall flavours into my morning recipes too, so i can feel like i am eating apple pie for breakfast.

this yogurt parfait is like a pie in a jar! it features a stovetop apple pie filling (which if you double, you can make last weeks no-bake apple pie cheesecake.. just saying), maple sea salt granola & vanilla bean skyr. of course any yogurt will work, but i favour the creaminess & richness of skyr. the maple sea salt granola is from bob's red mill & it is so addicting. since justin wakes up first, i have to stop him from eating it all before me! the granola is pan-baked & made with whole grain oats, real maple syrup + coconut.

this parfait is one of those recipes you can assemble (#mealprep) sunday night & enjoy throughout the work week. however, unlike overnight oats it can be enjoyed immediately too. yay for fall breakfasts & crisp fall mornings!
