Sweet treats from breakfast to dessert, with a healthy twist.

Peanut Butter Banana Bread Parfait

Sometimes you need a dessert option that looks beautiful but feels healthy, or a breakfast option that tastes healthy but looks decadent; this is both! Remember my Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Bread? Here’s a great way to use up leftovers (you had leftovers?), or a fun way to serve banana bread to your guests or family without handing them a slab of banana bread. The recipe results in one parfait, so just multiply it for how many people you want to serve.

Peanut Butter Banana Bread Parfait
(one parfait)
2 thin slices PB Banana Bread, cubed
¼ cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
½ Tbs. natural peanut butter
1-2 drops liquid vanilla stevia (or ¼ tsp. vanilla extract and ½ tsp. Splenda)
½ tsp. chopped dry roasted peanuts
~In a small bowl, combine yogurt, peanut butter, and stevia. Mix well.
~In a small glass cup, layer: ½ of the cubes of banana bread, ½ of the peanut butter yogurt, the rest of the banana bread cubes, then the rest of the yogurt, and top it all off with the chopped peanuts.
*Optional: add a layer of thinly sliced bananas in the middle of the parfait!
 I built up the last layer of yogurt so it looks like whipped cream! 
Strike up a conversation: Do you enjoy your banana bread as-is, or do you try to dress it up a bit?

    Perfect way to use extra banana bread :) This looks amazing! Plus peanut butter and banana is one of my favorite combos…yum! I usually like banana bread as-is, but this looks too good to pass up!

    Jenn and “you-made-that” thanks so much!

  6. I love making parfait, but I usually make it from brownies or chocolate cake or something chocolatey!! Banana bread sounds like a great base for a parfait. I’m definitely going to have to start branching out!
