Carve out time on Sundays to make a week’s worth of breakfasts, like these parfaits. Assemble the yogurt and fruit and store the parfaits in individual jars, one for each day of the week, in the refrigerator. Top with granola when you’re ready to eat.

Serves 5


For granola:
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
For parfaits:
  • 1 quart plain yogurt
  • 2 pounds mixed berries, fresh or frozen and thawed


Active time: 15 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes

To make granola: Preheat oven to 325°. In a large bowl, mix together granola ingredients and stir to coat. Spread mixture on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until dry and crisp, stirring once, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool.

To make parfaits: In each of five 8-ounce jars, layer 1/2 cup yogurt, a scoop of berries, and another 1/4 cup yogurt. Cover and store in the refrigerator. Top each parfait with 1/4 cup granola just before serving.
