A quick post this morning with a decadent breakfast from the weekend. You can’t even tell it has (almost) no added sugar. Plus, it kept me full for hours as we trekked around looking at wedding venues – post on that coming later! We enjoyed it along with some morning cuddles. (Excuse the terrible photo. I was starving.)
Chocolate-Coconut Overnight Oat and Banana Parfait
- 1/2 cup oats
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp chocolate extract
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 frozen sliced bananas
- Coconut butter
- Almond butter
- Whisk first five ingredients together in a bowl. Refrigerate overnight.
- In the morning, use a food processor to create “banana soft serve” from your two frozen bananas.
- Put in a layer of overnight oats, then soft serve, then as much or as little almond butter and coconut butter as you’d like. Keep creating layers. Garnish with coconut.
- I also melted chocolate chips and dolloped it on top, but next time I think I would just mix some in. If you leave them off, you have NO added sugar at all.
The coconut butter hardens between the layers, which adds some crunch. It’s like a healthier version of the magic shell from a bottle!
