Cheerio Peanut Parfait

I have been in a breakfast rut lately. I love my avocado toast and I love my overnight oats and my Spinach Quiche Cups, but it was time to change it up. This morning, I saw Cheerios sitting out, and it hit me. I think the key here is a fancy cup to eat it out of. I felt like I was at a fancy brunch restaurant this morning. This little concoction is cute, tasty and super filling. This little layering of protein comes in at 5 smart points.

Note: If you don’t like Greek yogurt, substitute plain yogurt. I also used vanilla paste, which is expensive, but worth it for all of the flavor you get. I also used PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter, but you could use anything. Lastly, if you don’t care for chia seeds, anything with a little crunch will work well for you .20170312_110127
