Pumpkin + Greek Yogurt Parfaits
Most mornings I eat breakfast at home before I leave for work but lately I’ve been pulled in 100 different directions so I’ve been craving all the extra sleep I can get. I like building little parfaits in ball jars that I can through in my purse and eat at my desk once I get to work – they’re easy to make, a healthy on-the-go option and fun to try different flavor combinations. A friend from work and I have been experimenting with some pumpkin yogurt options and this is the one I landed on as my favorite. I combine pumpkin spice and truvia into pumpkin puree and layered it with vanilla greek yogurt them topped the whole thing with maple pecan granola. The best part is that this tiny jar (it looks normal in the pic but is a mini 8oz jar!) is so filling and it’s a great balance of the nutrition I’m looking for in breakfast.

Gather up your ingredients: vanilla greek yogurt, pumpkin pie spice, truvia, pumpkin puree + granola.
I put 1/2 cup of the pumpkin puree in a small bowl and mixed 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice + 1/2 packet of truvia.
I put half the pumpkin mixture in the bottom of my jar (again it’s an 8oz mini ball jar I got at Hobby Lobby) and then added 3 ounces vanilla greek yogurt on top of that.
Next I added the rest of the pumpkin mixture and topped it with 2 tbsp of maple pecan granola. If you’re making this the night before, don’t add the granola until the morning so that it doesn’t get soggy!
