Yogurt and granola have been one of my staple breakfasts for years. It’s quick and easy and I can mix in whatever fruit we happen to have in the house. One morning, I had been too lazy to slice up my banana and stuck it into the yogurt whole. My husband laughed when he saw and said it looked more like a banana split than breakfast. I loved the idea and started making my parfaits in sundae form.
This is my favorite version. The ingredients are simple, but all together this feels like a really special breakfast – and loaded with fruit, it’s not one you’ll feel bad about devouring either.
Breakfast Banana Split
- 1 banana
- 6 oz. vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 3 Tbsp. granola
- 2 Tbsp. blueberries
- 2 Tbsp. chopped strawberries
- 1 Tbsp. Nutella
- Slice the banana in half lengthwise and place it in a bowl.
- Mix together the yogurt and cinnamon. Pour between the banana halves. Sprinkle granola over the yogurt and banana. Top with blueberries and strawberries.
- In a microwave safe bowl, heat the Nutella until warm and runny. Drizzle over berries and serve immediately.

I’m tellin you what! YOU are such a woman after my heart! ;-} I often enjoy a granola/fruit/yogurt parfait, but why oh why I’ve never thought to make it into a ‘split’ is beyond me. Topped with nutella no less! YUUUMMM! Thanks for sharing your simple ideas. I’ve made several of them.
