This fruit-and-cereal cup makes a great breakfast or after-school snack.

Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 20 mins

Cook: 30 mins

  • 4 Bartlett pears, halved lengthwise and cored
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 1/2 cup fruit-and-nut granola
  • 1 cup plain whole milk yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . Arrange the pears, cored side up, in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Squeeze the lemon over the pears and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Pour 1/4 cup water into the baking dish and cover with foil. Bake until the pears are tender but still hold their shape, about 30 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons water to the baking dish and set aside to cool.
  2. Cut the pears into small cubes and toss with the baking liquid. Spoon 1/4 cup chopped pears into each of 4 parfait glasses. Top with 1 tablespoon granola, 2 tablespoons yogurt and about 1 teaspoon maple syrup. Repeat the layering.

  • Bake the pears up to three days in advance.
