power-packed parfait {recipe}

it's been quite a busy weekend as i mentioned earlier. i think i went to my church building a total of four different times saturday.. and then of course again on sunday. but really. i was just running, running, running. in a good way. but whew!

so let's talk about a good way to start a crazy day like my saturday! how about with a delicious breakfast? this was going to be on my pinterest challenge, but i couldn't wait to try it, so i ended up eating it before i started the challenge and had to pick something else. the original recipe is called the 6-flavor slimming breakfast sundae, but i just call it....

power-packed parfait 

servings: 2

1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup ground flax seed {or wheat germ or anything like that!}
1/4 cup of sesame seeds or sunflower seeds
1 handful of chopped nuts {we used almonds}
pinch of salt and ginger {or nutmeg, or cloves, or cinnamon, any kind of sweety spice}
2 containers or about 1 1/2 cups of yogurt {we like brown cow greek yogurt! mmm)
1 banana, all sliced up
1 cup of berries, fresh or frozen, any kind

1. mix all of the dry ingredients.
2. in two small bowls, parfait glasses, something pretty that's see through {wink! gotta see the layers!}, layer the dry mix, bananas, berries and yogurt until the glasses are full.
3. bon apetit! make sure to get a glass of milk to wash this goodness down with!

this can also make a great summer time snack! and it's one of those recipes you can just substitute in all kinds of ways to end up with different flavors [i love that because i get bored with the same food over again sometimes].

what do you like to eat for breakfast to get a kick start on a busy day?
