Heart-Shaped Yogurt Parfait Oatmeal Cups with Raspberry Compote

So, I got another oatmeal post for you guys! This time, I made healthy, heart-shaped yogurt parfait oatmeal cups. And they were absolutely delicious! Not to mention, super CUTE. Just take a look below. Perfect size for little hands, and good for you too.

These yogurt parfait oatmeal cups will definitely be in our regular breakfast rotation. It’s a nice change from regular oatmeal, and healthier than store bought granola for sure. The oatmeal base is made with just bananas and oatmeal with a little added cinnamon and vanilla. I also used organic greek yogurt and topped it with strawberries. If you want it sweeter and less tart, you can add honey into your yogurt, but since I made the raspberry compote to go on top, I decided to skip that step. My daughter also loves tart yogurt.

I used mini fruit and vegetable cutters to cut out the cute strawberry I placed on top. And a heart-shaped muffin pan for the oatmeal cups. As you can probably tell, I LOVE my heart-shaped muffin tin. Check out our popular heart-shaped, no sugar added oatmeal muffins and healthy heart-shaped egg muffins, too.

The raspberry compote on top was the special kicker. If you have frozen raspberries in your freezer, that’s all you need. Sprinkle some chia seeds on top, spread some compote and munch away. All in all, today was a good day. Because we started it first thing with these.
