Yummy Breakfast Parfait

30 Apr

Happy humpday all!

Today I have a great recipe for you. A nice dare I say it -healthy- breakfast parfait!

Made with fresh fruit, Greek yogurt and overnight oatmeal, what’s not to love?

Ok so you can’t see everything in that jar due to the yogurt filling up everywhere, but just wait till you try it!

It’s like heaven in a jar. I’m not kidding.

I first saw a similar version of this parfait here at peanut butter and peppers. If you haven’t been there before you should check it out. She has tons of great recipes for keeping up with a healthy life style.

Now you follow her instructions precisely you will have this for your nutritional content:

Jennifer’s Breakfast Parfait Jar:  282,  Fat:  6.1,  Sodium:  84,  Carbs:  39,  Fiber:  8,  Sugar:  15,  Protein:  19

Not too bad huh!

Mine has a few more calories, 40 more to be exact, but we only keep whole milk in the fridge and I used vanilla instead of plain for the yogurt. Don’t be afraid to vary it up a bit though. It’s so simple to make and so yummy, it will have you going back again and again.

So here’s how to make it:

Starting the night before you are going to want to make your oatmeal.

Simply put, its overnight oatmeal so you want to make it overnight. 🙂

You’ll need:

1/4 c old fashioned oats

1/4 c milk

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp honey

dash cinnamon

All you have to do is combine all your ingredients, stir, cover, and refrigerate overnight:

In the morning it will look like this:

That right there is good on its own, but wait till you add it to everything else.. OMG it’s delicious!

So for the rest of your parfait you will need:

1/2 c Greek yogurt- I used vanilla

1/2 c Diced strawberries

1 small banana or 1/2 c of whatever fruit you desire- don’t be afraid to play with this a bit

Your now made overnight oatmeal.

Then simply layer your ingredients like this, 1/4 c yogurt:

1/2 a banana:

Your oatmeal:

Then yogurt, strawberries and banana again:

And that’s it! This is a pint sized canning jar, and yesterday I took it in to work and ate it there. It’ll drop right into your purse, or diaper bag and you can eat it anywhere you want. You can add some granola if you wish or leave it as is. Either way it’s a great breakfast start and will keep you full for hours.

If you have a variation you’d like to share, let me know below, I’d love to hear from you!

Until next time,

Happy “baking”
