 I have been trying to switch up my breakfast meals, since my career choice recently changed. My home is currently my office as well as my work station which is my kitchen. Now that I get to put much time into baking pastry empire – #TastieBakes and creating written recipes  and YouTube videos, the walk to the kitchen is one second away and getting my hands on the yummy unhealthy treats is so easy and yet I don’t really exercise that much as I used to, so trust me getting chubby is super easy, and nobody ever wants to go down that road. Having to incorporate some fresh fruits, nuts, oats, granola and some yogurt for breakfast among other delicious ingredients, is not only delicious but good and healthy for the body, let’s not forget hydration with water.Change from the norm is hard, but looking at the long run its great for the body and skin.

Can we just talk about this simple fruit dessert that takes only 2 to 5 mins to prep? Yes, you heard right. There are millions of parfait recipes out there, and am pretty sure there isn’t a right or wrong way to prepare these types of desserts. All that matters is, your preferences, availability of ingredients at hand and not forgetting your creativity. Most parfaits are mainly prepared in clear type of glass mason jars, but then again, the tools used isn’t limited to only glass jars but also with bowls. Here is what I came up with as a final product.

Making “Baked Granola Fruity Parfait”

Prep time: 2 mins   Total time: 2 mins

Serves: 2 pax

MAIN INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 an apple – diced
  • 1 full banana – sliced
  • a handful of seedless grapes – sliced
  • 1/2 an orange – diced
  • Vanilla flavored yogurt
  • 2 baked granola cookies – crushed

Tools used:

  • 2 wine glasses
  • 2 spoons
  • a rolling pin
  • tumbler
  • chopping board
  • knife

INSTRUCTIONS:

Step 1: The base always has to be a liquid based ingredient. For my case, it’s the vanilla yogurt. 4 generous teaspoon scoops would be enough depending on the normal size wine glasses.

Step 2: Here you can play around with any crunchy ingredient you may have. I settled with slightly crushed baked granola cookies { nuts + oats } this will be a rock solid foundation for the rest of the other ingredients.

Step 3: Fresh fruits lay here. Whatever might be in season – dice it, slice it or chop it and place it here. Feel free to play around with colors too.

Step 4: Repeat steps 1,2,3.

Step 5: Refrigerate it for 15 to 30 mins, but nobody got time for that. I’m seriously salivating. I’m digging it right about this minute.
