A while back, I posted these parfaits at the Crafty Allie Blog and they are so good that I wanted to make sure I shared it here as well! These parfaits actually turned Ryan from a yogurt hater to a yogurt lover! He eats Greek Yogurt daily now! Woo Hoo!
So these parfaits started out of necessity. I needed to change up my breakfast routine to incorporate more dairy. See, I hate milk. I don’t think I have drank a glass of milk since I was very young, and the mere thought of it grosses me out! I try to eat lots of cheese and calcium rich veggies, but I know that isn’t always enough. I saw a version of these on Pinterest and thought that it sounded like something I might like.
These incorporate all my favorite things about cookies: Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Oats! The oats and peanut butter make these super filling and protein packed, while the chocolate lends a sweet taste so this tastes more like a treat than breakfast.
I have two recipes listed below. The first uses sweetened vanilla yogurt and the second uses plain. The plain yogurt is healthier but I know some people don’t care for the taste of plain yogurt, so I am providing both recipes! Also, I used whipped peanut butter because you get more bang for your buck, if you will. It is light and airy so that you feel like you are eating more, but getting the same amount of calories!
Use recipe two for the 21 Day Fix! You can use this as a special treat and replace a yellow container up to 3 times a week! You could also measure it out using the containers:
Oatmeal=Half a Yellow
Use the chocolate chips if you have a little wiggle room in your meal plan for that day!
