I partnered with SPLENDA® for this post. As always, my opinions remain my own.

As much as I hate to admit it, fall is almost here! There’s good things about the weather getting cooler: the kids are back in school (YESSS), it’s more comfortable to run when it’s not boiling hot, and most importantly, the fall produce season is ramping up very nicely.

I know you all want some quick, breakfast ideas that you can grab and go, so you’re going to love this Pear Ginger Crisp Parfait Recipe. Creamy yogurt topped with crispy pear granola that’s made in 5-6 minutes in one frying pan? Yes please. The flavours of the season: pears, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves, meld together to make a warming, delicious breakfast that starts your day off right.

This Pear Ginger Crisp Parfait recipe has a 18 grams of protein, 6 grams fiber, and no added sugar! I used SPLENDA® Stevia No Calorie Sweetener, which has no bitter taste and is perfect for cooking.

Feel free to double this recipe.
