My husband and I are extremely guilty of a common kitchen crime. We go weak on breakfast. Yeah the grab a bowl of cereal or a banana, scarf it down and go. No there isn’t anything criminal about that but there’s been a conviction of sorts with getting more into our breakfast to in turn put more pep in our step at the beginning of the day. These recipe seemed simple enough and the only thing that I changed about it is I multiplied the recipe by 3 to make enough in 8 small 8 oz. mason jars so we could just grab and go for the week. Also, I bought the 32. oz container of Stony Field Farms vanilla Greek yogurt and it does compliment the other ingredients so well. Kick the mundane breakfast blue, or lack there of, in the tush and incorporate this blueberry breakfast parfait that everyone including your kids will be sure to enjoy.
