A creamy chocolate peanut butter pudding parfait for breakfast... and before a long run? Why not? Take.a couple minutes to toss the ingredients together the night before and it's ready to dish first thing in the morning! Loaded with fiber, protein, healthy fats and a little caffeine from the cacao, it's the perfect breakfast to sustain you through a long workout. I love to have this first thing in the morning before I head out for a long run. (recipe inspired by Oh She Glows - http://ohsheglows.com/2010/04/08/easy-vegan-overnight-oats/)
- 1⁄3 cup rolled oats
- 1⁄3 cup Greek yogurt
- 1⁄4 cup low-fat milk
- 1⁄4 cup mashed banana
- 1 tablespoon natural-style peanut butter (just peanuts, no sugar or salt added)
- 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 dash fine sea salt
- In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients and put in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight. That's it!
- TO MAKE A PARFAIT: After pudding is set, spoon 1/3 of it into a fancy dish and top with a dollop of greek yogurt and 3 banana slices. Repeat 2 more times and drizzle a little peanut butter on top.
