Banana's Foster and Granola Parfaits Recipe

Gluten-Free Bananas Foster & Granola Parfaits

This is one of those super simple recipes that barely feels like a recipe at all. It always impresses people, even the pickiest of kids, yet it takes only minutes to prepare. It’s a perfect accompaniment to a wonderful Mother’s Day brunch since it looks so fancy with the pretty layers. For less sugar, choose plain, unflavored yogurt. For a sweeter version, choose vanilla yogurt.

  • 6 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened apple juice (or dark rum extract)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • 2 cups 2% reduced-fat plain Greek yogurt (or vanilla for sweeter taste)

  • ¼ cup chopped pecans , toasted


  • Peel bananas and cut each banana into ½-inch discs.
  • Combine sugar, apple juice, and butter in a nonstick skillet. Cook over medium-low heat for 3 minutes or until sugar mixture begins to bubble. Watch closely so it does not burn. Add bananas to the pan and cook for 2 minutes, or until they begin to soften and caramelize.
  • Spoon ¼ cup yogurt each into four glasses. Add spoonful of banana mixture to each glass. Add spoonful of granola on top of bananas. Repeat layers again with another ¼ cup yogurt, another spoonful of bananas, and another spoonful of granola. Top each glass with chopped pecans and any extra syrup in the pan from the banana mixture.
