Peanut Butter Banana Parfait

Peanut Butter Banana Parfait @themerrythought
I’ve been on a peanut butter kick lately! I think it’s because I’m trying not to eat it a lot (still trying to eat healthier), so I crave it all the time! Ha, isn’t that the way it always works?!
I love peanut butter on my bananas!  It’s a favorite snack, and it’s actually not too unhealthy, just a little on the high-fat side…but I think the fact that it’s a good source of protein can make up for that, right?! When I was thinking about brunch foods, parfaits came to mind because they’re easy to make, easy for your guests to customize to their liking if you want to set it up that way, and they look pretty! We have an amazing peanut butter granola recipe on the blog that we love, so the peanut butter banana combination popped into my head and I decided to try it out!

These parfaits are soo good and so simple to put together! Even making the homemade granola isn’t that hard. These would definitely be perfect for brunch, as you can make the granola ahead and the only job you’d have besides putting them together, would be slicing the bananas! And with a big meal like brunch, the easier each dish is to prepare, the better!

Any other peanut butter-banana lovers out there? And if you’re not a fan of bananas, you should still try the granola – because it’s delicious!

    Oh yum. I am totally craving this right now. But it’ll have to wait until morning because I am also trying to eat a bit healthier and am on a regime where no sugar or carbs are allowed after dinner. So far my cravings are trying to tell me otherwise. We’ll see how long this lasts…sigh.ReplyCancel
