I’m obsessed with figs and can’t get enough during the fig season in California which runs mid-May through December. I’ve discovered the frozen figs are delicious for snacking or adding to smoothies, so I buy extra figs and freeze them every year. I always save some to eat fresh, and love using them in breakfast parfaits like this one which is layered with yogurt, granola and honey. Figs have fiber, vitamins & minerals, and antioxidants and are a perfect addition to your morning!

Yogurt Honey Fig Breakfast Parfait Ingredients

For this 5-Ingredient parfait I bought all of my ingredients from Trader Joe’s, but feel free to play around with different granolas (like this recipe!), yogurts and fig varieties!

Yogurt Honey Fig Breakfast Parfait ingredients from Trader Joes

Black Mission Figs: All figs are delicious but I love the deep purple color skin and strawberry colored inside of black mission figs.

Honey Greek Yogurt: Honey and figs are a match made in heaven so this yogurt is delicious in this breakfast parfait. If you prefer a less sweet parfait simply substitute with plain greek yogurt.

Granola: Any granola will do, including homemade granola, but I opted for this toasted coconut granola from Trader Joes because of the unique combination of rolled outs, cornflakes, sprouted quinoa, almonds and toasted coconut chips. It is delicious and gluten free.

Walnuts: I like to up my Omega 3’s by putting walnuts on everything lately. I used raw walnuts, but toasted would be delicious too. Coconut chips or other nut varieties would make great substitutions.

Honey: This is optional as this parfait is already sweet, but it looks pretty and who doesn’t love a little extra drizzle of honey?!

    So simple and so delicious! I’m a big fan of figs also, and envy the fact that your season is so long! We have a short, 2 month tops, season here, Argentina. Beautiful idea for using them!
