These little jars are a cross between a crumble bar and a yogurt parfait. They are DELICIOUS. The thick yogurt is spiked with jam, the crumble layers provide the best crunchy texture, and the fresh strawberries add a layer of goodness.

Dessert / Breakfast / Big Snack

Call them a dessert or a breakfast or a snack because I’ve had them for all three occasions. I actually did the nutrition math on these and they come in a 385 calories per jar with 3 grams of fiber, 12 grams of protein, and 28 grams of sugar. Do with that what you may!

Put A Lid On It

Because you can add a lid, these make a great picnic or portable summer treat. They will keep in your fridge for a couple of days, so make them ahead and take them with you wherever your summer travels go. I also imagine that from the same ingredients one could make a pie – a crust pressed into the bottom of a small pan, a creamy, dreamy yogurt layer, strawberries and crumble on top. I haven’t tried this (yet) but tell me if you do!

(Yes, there’s a hole in my lid, designed for a straw. But since these just went in my fridge I had to use the cutest lids I could find! These are by Mason Jar Lifestyle.)

How To

Super simple!! And almost no bake. The crust gets a 10 minute bake to help it firm up and crisp the topping a bit.

Crumble 4 LIFE

Into the bottom of 4 mason jars (which are oven safe)

Press down with spatula

Bake for 10 mins

Mix yogurt
