Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt and Granola Parfaits

Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt and Granola Parfait

Chocolate and Peanut Butter are a favorite combination around here.   I love to make gooey treats featuring those flavors.  But the warm weather had us craving something creamy and cold.  After overindulging lately in ice cream, I wanted to make a snack that had some redeeming qualities.

Using just 4 ingredients (Dark Chocolate,Peanut Butter, Plain Yogurt and Granola), I created these parfaits that hit the spot.  It has very little sugar (just honey from the granola).  They were perfectly sweet enough with just a bit of tartness from the yogurt.  Although you could add a drop of honey to the yogurt if desired.

I refrigerated them for later, and the yogurt thickened up quite a bit and became very pudding like.  I think you could use greek yogurt to get the same effect immediately.  They were also delicious eaten right away.

They were such a big hit, I just had a vision of throwing them in my zoku for frozen parfaits!  Time to dust that baby off and get it working for healthy homemade frozen treats.  I’m always looking for inspiration, what is your family’s favorite cold treat?

    This is genius! I’m going to have to try it out on my hubby (I know I’ll like it, but his taste buds have yet to adjust to the decreasing amount of sweeteners in our diet).

      You could use a semisweet chocolate, and that would help a bit. Or maybe try a vanilla flavored yogurt as the base, instead of plain. Hope you like it!
