While my mom has been on the 'Get Forking Skinny Meal Plan', she decided that one of her favorite breakfasts/lunches ever is the Skinny PB&J Parfait. It's one of my favorites too.
So, with that in mind... I wanted to come up with another similar treat for her! Something that she wouldn't come up with on her own and that, once again, was just outside of her comfort zone.
What's better than peanut butter and chocolate?
Well, not much. If anything.
Add some banana to it and you have perfection!
Of course, if you have nut allergies you could always substitute any nut free peanut butter alternative. Or if you don't have any PB2 on hand, you can also use regular old peanut butter. Just be sure to update the nutritional information accordingly. PB2 has a lot less calories in it than regular peanut butter, but can be a little spendy if you are unsure about it. Honestly though, I love it.
And the chocolate layer? Well... that was my favorite. It was really very similar to chocolate pudding. Except, you know... guilt free! I can't say enough good things about Nutella. It's heaven.
I added some dark chocolate chips that I had leftover in the pantry and a few little granola crumbles, but it's really rather unneeded.
I think next time I'll eat this as a dessert with a few crushed up peanut butter cup crumbles on top. Yummy!
