This peach breakfast parfait is perfect for summer. We’re experiencing record breaking high temperatures here in Vermont with day after day of temps over 90F. OK so those of you in the south may look at 90F and laugh but for us that’s brutal. For the most part, Vermonters don’t have air conditioning because it doesn’t usually get that hot here. I can tell you that I am less than happy with 95F in my kitchen and I am absolutely positively not cooking anything I don’t have to. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Of course, the kids are still hungry constantly and I need to provide healthy snacks for them. I want something that’s easy to prepare, doesn’t involve me cooking anything and is loaded with healthy goodness. Granola is packed with both taste and goodness. The nuts and dried fruits are high in fiber and are a great source of energy.

I love combining yogurt and granola for an extra punch. Eating granola and yogurt before bed helps to front load your muscles. This produces a special type of carbohydrate called glycogen which helps increase your energy levels the next day. More energy is something I can always use. I often choose granola for breakfast because oats are high in iron and I tend to be anemic. Once you add in the high fiber which is good for weight loss and healthy digestion and you don’t get much better.

I look for a granola that contains things like oat bran, nuts, flax seeds and is lightly sweetened.  Natural sweeteners like honey and maple are definitely the way to go. Flax seed is high in soluble fiber which lowers bad cholesterol and it’s also high in Omega-3 essential fatty acids.

    Hey Ellen! This recipe sounds VERY yummy! I can't wait to prepare this Parfait for me and my family. I was wondering...if 'Fresh Peaches' aren't in season, may I use canned peaches? I mean, I guess I could, BUT...it probably won't taste as good, huh?
    Thank you SO much for sharing this very YUMMY recipe!!!

  21. Hi kimbuckjr@yahoo.com - You certainly could use canned peaches but I think it would loose some of the contrast between the fresh peach and the Greek yogurt. It would be better than no peaches at all :)
  22. Oh, wow, this sounds really great! I have one problem though, I can't eat yogurt because it is loaded with potassium. I have a bladder condition that if I take in potassium it makes it burn for days! What else could go in there besides yogurt?

  23. Mary - I would definitely try it with vanilla pudding instead - yummy!
  24. Looks good!

  26. I'm not a peach fan but this would be good with other fruits. Thanks for the recipe :)
