Pie for breakfast? Maybe not the best idea. A good-for-you oatmeal parfait that tastes like pie for breakfast? Now you're talking...

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes or less
Chill: 8 hours

1/2 cup chopped Fuji apple (or another sweet apple)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Truvia or Splenda)
One 5.3-oz. container (about 1/2 cup) fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt

In a medium microwave-safe bowl, mix apple with 1/8 tsp. cinnamon. Cover and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, or until apple has softened.

Add oats, almond milk, sweetener, and remaining 1/8 tsp. cinnamon. Mix well.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, until oats are soft and have absorbed most of the liquid.

In a medium jar, layer half of the oatmeal followed by half of the yogurt. Repeat layering with remaining oatmeal and yogurt.
