Parfaits have a marvellous taste and texture, but many are loaded with sugar and leaves one craving for more. Here’s my protein-inspired option with fruit, nuts, and dark chocolate chips.
Parfaits are quick and easy. Choose your favourite yogurt - dairy or dairy free - and add some delicious fruits and my favourite grain free cookies! For an extra special treat you can add some chocolate chips or shredded coconut!
Here is what I did for the grain free cookies~
1 cup almond and coconut flour
1/4 cup of flax
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup raisins or other dried fruits chopped
1tsp baking soda
Sea salt to taste
2 eggs (for vegans: 2tbsp ground chia with 3 tbsp warm water)
1/4 cup coconut oil melted, vanilla extract
1/4 cup honey or pure maple syrup
Blend wet ingredients with a hand mixer and combine well with dry ingredients
On a cookie tray lined with cookie sheet, press the mixture down or make small cookies
Bake at 325 F for 15 minutes
Cool, crumble and enjoy as a yogurt parfait crumble or as healthy cookies!
