I knew that the gray clouds were lifting when I envisioned this for breakfast…

Layers of oatmeal, pumpkin, fage and flaxseed meal with hints of pumpkin pie and cloves. Yum!

Oatmeal Pumpkin Parfait

2/3 cup oatmeal, (measured dry then cooked in water)

3/4 cup fage, divided (I use Fage Total 0%)

1/4 cup canned pumpkin

4 T honey, divided

1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/4 tsp ground cloves

4 T flaxseed meal

Combine the cooked oatmeal and cloves, set aside.

Combine 1/4 cup fage with canned pumpkin, 2 Tbsp honey and pumpkin pie spice, set aside.

Combine 1/2 cup fage with 2 Tbsp honey, set aside.

To assemble, start with two heaping spoon fulls of the oatmeal mixture, then layer in the pumpkin mixture, next sprinkle 1 Tbsp of the flaxseed meal, and then the fage. Do it all again. Makes enough for two servings.

Inspired by Kath, I am serving this up for this month’s Think Spice…Think Cloves event.

  2. I am so out of it…what is fage???? Lovely parfait! Curious…was the oatmeal cooled to assemble and eat or did the other stuff get warmed? I am so jealous of your backyard, it makes beautiful photos every time!

  3. Kath- Thanks!

    Gretchen- Fage is a greek yogurt. I use Fage 0% from Trader Joes. I didn’t cool the oatmeal, I just assembled and ate!

  4. That looks so pretty! I’ve never heard of Fage and I’ve never had anything flaxseed. But it’s such a pretty parfait!

  5. This is making me think my breakfast is very boring!!

  6. fage makes amazing yogurt, and i’d shout about it from the rooftops if i could figure out how to properly pronounce their name… :)

  7. Would this recipe be Weight Watcher friendly?

  9. As always, great post, great work. I just did a summer fruit with cream parfait with simple syrup. If you have the time come by and take a look. I made a quick cream with whipping cream, sour cream and honey.
