Fruit Parfaits with Homemade Maple Syrup Granola

Life has been absolutely crazy for the past couple weeks! And because of that I haven't posted since EASTER! WHAT! Yeah, I know terrible. But sadly I don't think it will slow down for a while. I just finished Winter semester at BYU. It was a very hectic semester but luckily I passed all of my class haha! Now I start spring term on Tuesday, which is going to be equally as crazy!

But, even with the crazy life I lead, good food is always a priority, haha! If that's not true for you then it should be haha! We made this granola the other week and it disappeared in the blink of an eye, not to mention it also made the house smell amazing! It was perfect to throw on these fruit parfaits or add to our cereal in the morning. 

I didn't post a recipe for the actual fruit parfaits... because I kinda just made it up. After you finish making the granola, let it cool for a second. Then just make layers of granola, yogurt, and fruit in your favorite cup or jar. It's pretty hard to mess up so I'm sure you can do it! Enjoy!
