Apple Oatmeal Parfait
Diced apples, vanilla lowfat (or nonfat) yogurt, raisins and your favorite crushed oatmeal cookies are layered in a glass or parfait bowl. Sweet, chewy and crunchy are the perfect combination for dessert or an after school snack with protein, vitamins, whole grains and, depending on the cookies you use, less sugar than most sweet treats.
Kids will love to crush the cookies and layer the fruit into the disk. Chill in the fridge for a little bit of time to soften the cookie crumbs…yum!!!
Ganz Parent Club Tip:
Spray the apples with a lemon juice and water mixture to prevent browning.
