These Healthy Breakfast Parfaits Two Ways (Coconut Cranberry + Pecan Pie) are made simple with Great Grains cereal and protein-packed Greek yogurt. Video included!

Happy 2017! I don’t know about you, but I was so ready for a new year.

What better way to celebrate a brand new year than with some healthy recipes? Let’s start with the most important meal of the day: breakfast!

I’m making a better effort to eat a healthy and satisfying breakfast every morning. Lately, I’ve slipped a little bit when it comes to the first meal of the day.

When it comes to breakfast, I love all things easy. Sure, on the weekends I’ll make a scramble or a quiche, some homemade hash browns, or even crepes. But on the weekday? No way. I’m all about chia pudding, overnight oats, avocado toast, smoothies, energy bites, and healthy breakfast parfaits.

I love these healthy breakfast parfaits. Just a few simple ingredients and minimal preparation creates something healthy, satisfying, and delicious!

I make these parfaits two ways: a Pecan Pie Parfait and a Coconut Cranberry Parfait.

Both of them contain protein-packed Greek yogurt and Great Grains. Great Grains is a great and convenient way to start your morning off right. They include tasty little granola clusters, real fruit, nuts, and crunchy whole grain flakes. This heart-healthy cereal is an excellent source of fiber and has up to 14 essential vitamins and minerals!

The Pecan Pie version is layered with a honey and cinnamon laced Greek yogurt, Great Grains Raisins, Date, and Pecan, and nutty pecan butter. The Coconut Cranberry version includes delicious coconut cream Greek yogurt, Great Grains Cranberry Almond Crunch, unsweetened coconut flakes, and maple-orange roasted cranberries. The cranberries are the only part of these healthy breakfast parfaits that involves cooking, but they’re so easy. Just mix everything together and let the oven do the work for you in just a few minutes.
