Cinnamon Quinoa and Apple Parfait

Topped with the homemade cinnamon granola that I made yesterday.

I told you I was obsessed with cinnamon!!


I recommend preparing all ingredients ahead of time, refrigerate, cool completely then assemble.

Cinnamon Apples

  • 4-5 apples peeled, cored and coarsely chopped – I used Granny Smith
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup water

Combine ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil and reduce heat to low.  Cover and cook until apples are softened.  Remove from heat and let cool completely.

Cinnamon Quinoa:  Cook 1 cup of quinoa according to package.  Cool completely then add 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon.

To assemble:  Layer yogurt, quinoa and apples top with granola.  Recipe yields 4 servings

Are you as obsessed with cinnamon as I am?
