Chocolate peanut butter granola and berry parfaits are great for a healthy breakfast, snack, or dessert!
Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day. The thought of breakfast literally gets me out of the bed in the morning! I leave the house early in the morning so that I can sit down at my desk at work to really enjoy it with a nice cup of coffee. I certainly do my best to find the joy in the little things!
Usually, I am more of a savory breakfast person. I prefer eggs, avocado toast or a breakfast skillet like my sweet potato hash breakfast skillet. Sometimes, though, you need to mix things up! What better way to “mix things up” than with layers of granola, berries, and yogurt?!
Still not convinced? Here are five reasons for you to prepare these parfaits!
With so few ingredients, you can easily incorporate them into your meal prep.
Parfaits are versatile -- switch out the ingredients depending on your mood, or season! I originally debut these on Instagram for 4th of July, hence the whole red, white, and blue theme, but you can easily make these for the fall if you do a simple switch! For example, for fall parfaits you could switch out the berries for apples and cinnamon. For the spring, use apricots with honey! The possibilities are endless.
Make these for breakfast, dessert, or as a snack. I won’t judge you if you make them for dinner, too.
They are easy to grab and take with you! Just prepare them in mason jars!
Impress your friends! Parfaits look adorable and most people don’t realize how little effort it takes to make them!
