Chocolate Berry Granola Parfaits #SundaySupper

I admit that I'm not a breakfast person. Brunch is more of my thing. It's later in the day so that works out for me. I don't like to get up early and I just don't want to eat that early in the morning.

 Not to mention that during the week I barely make it out of the door on time, so breakfast isn't happening.

On the weekend, BigBear normally makes breakfast. Except when he has to work. Then I'm on my own.

Normally it's cereal; that's my go to breakfast when I'm only fixing it for myself. It's easy, it's good. I'm content with it.

But sometimes I go a little wild and crazy... and make parfaits. I know... I'm a rebel. What can I say....haha.

I fell in love with parfaits when we lived in Jacksonville  I was actually kinda of addicted to them and would  walk to McDonalds on my lunch breaks to get them. haha. But making them at home is even better.

I found this Organic Chocolate Berry Granola at Aldi the other day and knew it would be perfect for my parfaits.

I paired it with the Vanilla Fat Free yogurt and topped it with a few of the dark chocolate and berries from the granola.
