Chocolate Oatmeal Parfait

I wish I could say that my breakfast was this glamorous everyday.

Because, seriously, who doesn't want to have a big bowl (glass?) of chocolate oatmeal first thing in the morning?

You know what makes it even better?  This lovely parfait is chalk-full of fruit and is much healthier than anything you can find at your local ice cream store.

I'm guessing you want the recipe now.

Chocolate Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Parfait
(makes 1 serving)

  • 1 serving (40 grams) cooked oatmeal
  • Sliced strawberries
  • Sliced banana
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • Sweetener
Stir the cocoa powder and sweetener into your oatmeal.  Then, pour a layer of oatmeal into a glass (if you want to feel fancy you can use a pretty one like above).  Top the oatmeal with a layer of strawberries, banana slices, or both.  Repeat the process until you're all out of oatmeal or fruit.  

You can try mixing up the recipe with different fruits and maybe even a different grain.  

Whatever you decide to do, this is a great breakfast that will be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth as well as your need to kick-start the day.

Pin It!
