Parfait my Way

As you all might already know, I am not a big fan of eating sweet things for breakfast. So, for me a parfait is more of a snack/dessert than a breakfast dish. Anyway, I have wanted to make it for a while now and just got around to it yesterday. That’s when a thought struck; why not create a parfait that can be had in one mouthful?
Click here for my granola recipe.
I took about half a cup of granola and added some honey to it and mixed it until it was sticky. I then took a tablespoonful of the granola and placed it in a mini cupcake liner and pressed it in, to form a cup shape. My oven was warm (from having baked the granola), so I placed these little cups in there for 30 minutes. They were set in their liners by that time and I transferred them to the refrigerator, to be used soon.
For the little parfait cups, take one granola cup, place a tiny scoop of yogurt in it and top it off with your favorite fruit. I used mangoes and strawberries. One little suggestion, eat them as soon as they are assembled or they will fall apart. Bon App├ętit.
