This apple pie breakfast parfait is a simple layered breakfast that is easy enough for kids to make and fancy enough for guests.
Saturday mornings I like to make fun breakfasts and often let my kids choose what we have. That usually includes things like:
But sometimes by Friday I just don’t have the energy or time to measure and soak flour and get things ready for baking. I need a simple breakfast that is still fun and delicious.
Enter the apple pie breakfast parfait! It is so easy to make that your kids can almost do it by themselves. But what’s even better about it is the taste.
Both of my big kids said it really tastes like apple pie. Then they proceeded to devour it!
There is no refined sugar (unless it is added to your granola). Apple pie breakfast parfait has a good balance of protein and fat from the yogurt and carbohydrates from the apples and granola. There is even some sea salt for balance if you use this kettle corn granola!
Don’t think this is just for kids, though!
Apple pie breakfast parfait looks so pretty and tastes so great it is perfect for entertaining house guests.
I would even make mini versions to serve at a brunch, whether for a playdate or a party.
I prepare the apple filling the night before so it can cool completely. Then in the morning I just layer the ingredients before breakfast. This would be a great thing for kids to do on their own or if they have friends over – build your own apple pie parfait!
This breakfast is very allergen friendly, being gluten, nut, corn, soy and egg free. If you are dairy free you can use coconut milk yogurt.
Apple pie breakfast parfait is also a perfect breakfast for the summer when you want something easy and cold. You can prepare it in advance or assemble it in the morning.
