Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Parfait!
Gosh, I feel so behind on everything these days. So much so that I post pictures of our eats on Facebook and then a week later people are asking me if I ever posted the recipe on my blog. Time is one thing I don't have a whole lot of right now. Things will settle down eventually, but for now, I am just doing what I can. So, a heads up, if I post a pic and it takes forever to get the recipe up, definitely say something to me if you're waiting for it!

This recipe is not of my own doing. I did tweak it a bit for me and my guys (since I wasn't using yogurt), but the original idea (a tiramisu protein parfait) came from my brilliant friend Laura from Sprint2Table!

This is positively worth the prep ahead of time! Think ooey gooey rich and creamy! Seriously, can you think of a better way to start your day? I think not!

Also, chocolate oats spiked with coffee kills two birds with one stone in the morning! Hello caffeine hit! Oh, and you can't forget about the chocolate and peanut butter combination! Really, you NEED to make this! 

I've been making a decaf version of this for treats at night too! In fact, I have one prepping for myself already for tonight. It really is the little things people that keep you going!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Parfait
adapted from Sprint2Table
(makes enough for 2 servings)

2/3 c gluten free rolled oats, pulsed in the food processor to break up a bit (I used Bob's Red Mill)
2 TBSP cocoa powder (I used Scharfen Berger)
1 1/3 c water
1/3 cup strong brewed, cooled coffee
20 drops NuNaturals cocoa liquid stevia (or 4 tsp sugar)

Peanut Butter Cream
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Plant Fusion)
2 TBSP natural peanut butter (or 2 TBSP peanut flour mixed with water to make peanut butter)
enough almond milk to make a thick cream (about 1/4 to 1/3c)

roasted peanuts for garnish

I used Laura's method for the oatmeal prep and the layering! It was like eating dessert for breakfast! The boys LOVE it!

(this ones for you Laura...Max rocking the morning hawk eating your treats!)

I have a HUGE list of blogger recipes that I want to try. I really need to find more time for the kitchen. How about you, have you tried something from another blogger lately that you loved? Give a little link love and share it here!
