Yum

I am addicted to Grape-Nuts and have been for years. There is something about the nutty, crunchy taste that I just can't get enough of. Kenya is getting to the age where he wants to try everything he sees me eat. So when I pour my bowl each morning, he always wants to munch on a few. It became clear to me very quickly that he inherited my love for them. Still, I want him to have variety in every meal, so I decided to make him a Grape-Nut breakfast parfait. Sure I could just make him his own little bowl with milk and berries, but that could be a real mess. So I came up with this recipe that also gives him fruit and dairy in addition to the carbohydrate of the Grape-Nuts. This being the week of 4th of July, I incorporated a red, white and blue theme for the fun of it, but it's great any day of the week.

I try to make this dish first thing in the morning, so that by the time Kenya's ready for breakfast the Grape-Nuts have gotten a chance to soften up from the yogurt. Kenya has so much fun watching me take the spoon, push it deep in the glass and pull up a delectable, colorful bite of pure yumminess.

    Used to love grape nuts until realizing they contain gmo soy. I’m going to try these for breakfast on the 4th with granola.

    Thought this may be fun to make for the kids while we’re there! Obviously any cereal or granola would work. I figured it’s probably all ingredients you would have around anyway : ).

    Hi Catherine,

    This looks very yummy and I am thinking of using it for an upcoming party. Will they last if I make them earlier that day and serve in the afternoon? How about the night before?

    Thanks for all the great recipes!
