Banana Yogurt Parfait with Maple-Oat Topping

Sometimes it's nice to toast oats and have them as a crunchy topping.  Here is a sweet little twist to a yogurt parfait and it makes a nice, wholesome and filling breakfast.

The recipe comes from the Carb  Lovers Diet.  They consider it one serving but it makes a very generous 1-1/2 cups and contains close to 400 calories.  That is way too much for me so I am callling it 2 servings and displaying their nutritional data as such, too.

You can easily divide the ingredients in half.  And, if you don't have maple syrup, use  your favorite pancake syrup, or even honey.  A sprinkle of cinnamon on the top is nice too.
