I always say that foods always taste better on a stick, in a pancake, cookie or in this case in a jar. Stacked and layered, glass Mason Jars are the perfect vessel for so many of your favorite foods. These Mason Jar Parfaits are off the hook delicious!
I first made these Mason Jar Parfaits for my monthly snack mom column in Parents Magazine. They're made with layer after layer of creamy yogurt, fresh berries like raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or strawberries and tons of crunchy granola in between. You can use a nut free granola like this one or this http_//weelicious.com/2016/01/04/super-healthy-granola-recipe/ we have been making for years.
Whenever I hit a wall early in the morning when we're rushed for time and I want to make something I know the kids will love this is one of the recipes I fall back on. This isn't the only recipe I like making in Mason Jars, though. You have to try Refrigerator Oatmeal or these Kiwi Persimmon Parfaits which are always a favorite.
Whether you're looking for a fun kids birthday party recipe, a healthy breakfast or simple snack, these Mason Jar Parfaits will be a winner!
PS If you make these share them with us by adding #weelicious or #weerecipes so I can see them!
