Creamy Fig Yogurt Breakfast Parfait Cups – A healthy gluten-free breakfast with a fiber boost! A blended Yogurt Cup with dried California Mission Figs, chia seeds, a drizzle of molasses, and a cinnamon toasted buckwheat topping!


  • 1/2 cup dried figs. Stems removed.
  • 1 cup almond or coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 frozen small to medium banana
  • 1 tbsp honey (divided)
  • 1 tbsp creamy almond butter
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat groats (cinnamon toasted ) *see notes for other toasted grain options*
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar.
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp chia seed
  • drizzle of molasses on top
  • Optional protein boost -> 1 scoop vanilla protein.:


  1. Remove stems from figs, slice in half, place in bowl and cover with water and a drizzle of honey. Soak for 10 minutes or so. This is optional but it makes the figs more soft, flexible, and sticky sweet for the parfait cups. Like a fig newton filling!
  2. Preheat oven to 350F. While oven preheats, make your creamy yogurt blend.
  3. In a blender, blend together yogurt, almond milk, banana, honey, almond butter. Set aside.
  4. Toss together 1/2 cup buckwheat groats coconut oil, cinnamon, and sugar. See notes of other grains to toast.
  5. Toast on baking pan at 350F for 5-6 minutes. Remove and let cool.
  6. Place 3 slices of figs (each) into two cups, pour your creamy yogurt blend on top. Layer with more figs on top. Add toasted cinnamon buckwheat on top, then a pinch of cinnamon, molasses, and chia seeds.


  • Feel free to try this with regular oats, steel cut oats, and quinoa, but take a little longer to toast. Around 10 minutes or so. Check at frequently so you don’t overcook.
  • For vegan option, use coconut yogurt or non dairy yogurt of choice.
