Apple Maple Parfait

Apple Maple Parfait

8 small to medium apples – peeled, cored and chopped into 1 1/2 inch cubes (apple count will depend on the size of your apples. Mine were a little on the smaller side)
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoon vanilla paste – if you do not have vanilla paste you can use the seeds of a scraped vanilla bean or vanilla extract
2 tablespoon lemon juice
4 8oz. containers vanilla flavored Greek yogurt
Maple syrup

Take chopped apples and put in large bowl. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and vanilla paste, stir and let sit for 30 minutes. The apples should now be sitting in a bowl of sugary liquid. Take apples and juice and put into saucepot on the stove. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until the apples are soft but not falling apart. The sugar mixture should thicken up a bit too. Remove from heat and let cool. In a 1/2 pint glass mason jar add a spoon full of the cooled apple mixture, drizzle of maple syrup and a large spoonful of yogurt – continue until you reach the top of your jar, then sprinkle with granola and enjoy!
