It’s that time of year where I LOVE all things apple. Well, really, I’m an apple fan all year long. I’ll tell you what I’m not a fan of, that’s pie. Shocker. I just can’t get down with the pie crust. I’ve never been a crust fan. So with this little parfait dazzler I can have apple pie ‘essence’ without the crust! Not only that, this is a fantastic and healthy breakfast idea. Another one of my fav go-to snacks is apples & peanut butter! So by mixing the crumble with pb it’s like the best of all the worlds!
One more great thing about this parfait is just how quickly you can whip it together. The crumble is no-bake, so unlike typical granola, you don’t have to bake it…wait for it to cool… yada yada yada. The crumble reminds me of what I used for my Red White & Blue Strawberry Blueberry Dessert Parfaits (except without the sugar or butter!). If you’ve got an abundance of apples, want a little healthier breakfast option: I’m your girl, and this is your recipe! Enjoy!

Does it matter if you use “Minute” oats or the regular oats in this recipe?
I would think either would be fine!
