Happy National Oatmeal Month! We're still wildly in love with our oatmeal parfait recipes from last year... So much so that we're cranking out even MORE. Lucky you! And here's a little tip: If you want to have one first thing in the morning, just prep the oatmeal the night before. And now, the recipes...

 
 
Banana-choco-rama Oatmeal Parfait

PER SERVING (entire recipe): 311 calories, 7.5g fat, 586mg sodium, 58g carbs, 7g fiber, 16.5g sugars, 7.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 8*

You're either having chocolate for breakfast or oatmeal for dessert. Your call...

Ingredients:


Oatmeal
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia)
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Parfait
1 small banana
One 60-calorie sugar-free or no-sugar-added chocolate pudding snack (like the kind by Jell-O)
1 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
To make the oatmeal, combine oats, sweetener, and salt in a small nonstick pot on the stove. Add Almond Breeze, vanilla extract, and 3/4 cup water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 9 minutes, stirring often, until thick and creamy.

Allow to cool slightly. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 1/2 hours.

To make the parfait, slice banana into coins and set aside. Stir oatmeal thoroughly until uniform in texture. Spoon half of the oatmeal into a tall glass, and top with half of the pudding and half of the banana slices. Repeat with remaining oatmeal, pudding, and banana slices. Top with chocolate chips and enjoy!
