A great breakfast option, the cinnamon and grape nuts in this recipe set it apart from the ordinary fruit and yogurt parfait.

    Very tasty, and I liked the touch of cinnamon. I would get plain or vanilla flavored yogurt, or it gets too sweet with the fruit on top. I made the mistake of mixing in the granola in my pre-made cups, which became soggy the next day: add only when ready to eat.

    This is my go-to breakfast. It makes a huge difference to double the banana. Really good. (We cut everything in half and make this for two people - but use the whole banana.) Also, we use a super plain immersion blender that you can put into a plastic cup. Makes clean up a lot easier than a regular blender.
