If you love pb+j then you’ll love this parfait. Peanut butter yogurt is layered with strawberry jam, fresh strawberries, and peanut butter granola. Prefect for breakfast or a light dessert.
After 4 awesome days of BBQ-festing it’s time for me to return to Knoxville. Memphis is especially fun in May and I couldn’t have picked a better weekend for which to return. I may need to detox with spinach smoothies and salads however, but in the meantime lets talk about parfaits.
Despite my love for all things peanut butter, it took me a long time to get on board with peanut butter and jelly things beyond the sandwich. For some reason it did not appeal in dessert form but that all changed when I had the peanut butter and jelly candy bar from Trader Joe’s. Then when I got my hands on the KIND peanut butter granola I decided it was time to make a peanut butter and jelly parfait! With all the fresh strawberries I’ve had on hand after picking them on three separate occasions it was an easy decision to incorporate them and the freshly homemade strawberry jam my dad and I made.
This recipe is written for one since it is Single Serving Sunday, but it’s incredibly easy to multiply for more servings. As you can see I ended up making two.

- In a small bowl, blend together the yogurt and peanut butter. Divide 1/3 of this mixture into the bottom a cup or bowl. Top with a tablespoon of jelly, two tablespoons of strawberries, and two tablespoons of granola. Repeat the layers, ending with a third layer of the yogurt mixture. Top with additional granola and strawberries.
