PB & J Parfait

IMG_7703Since having a baby almost a year ago, I wake up in the morning absolutely starving. I don’t know if its the earlier wake up time that makes me hungrier earlier, or the nursing – likely both – but beside coffee, breakfast is one of the first things on my mind! While most mornings an english muffin or a quick KIND Bar will do, sometimes I need a little something more.

This PB & J Parfait was born on one of those mornings when I needed something more. We were out of granola and I wanted to add something to my yogurt for a little crunch. Enter crushed graham crackers! The grahams added the crunch I was looking for and I loved that it was different from my usual. The “J” in my parfait is actually fresh strawberries, but you could add jelly to the yogurt or any other fresh fruit. The peanut butter swirled into the Greek yogurt brings this all together, making the parfait a special breakfast treat.
