Super amazing apple pie parfait made with warm and slightly sweet diced apples sautéed in cinnamon and little brown sugar to help satisfy that sweet tooth!Jump to Recipe
Apple Pie… need I say more.
I was aiming for the quick and easy dessert and I think I hit the jackpot with this one. I don’t know why I don’t make these more often. What are the chances that I’d have fresh fruit, granola, and some yogurt? I’d say there’s about a 96% chance my fridge and pantry has three these things. Theres simply no excuse. I’ve ran out.
What I love about making parfaits is that it’s totally customizable. You can add any fruit you have on hand like bananas, kiwis, grapes, berries, etc (the possibilities are endless).
I’ve found that parfaits are the type of recipes you can just wing. It’s as simple as adding a layer of yogurt, then a layer of sautéed apples, next a layer of granola and repeat. Control the portion sizes by using jar. Parfaits are great for making in advanced. Prepare your Apple Pie Parfait the day before and enjoy.
