I’m not really sure that Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse is the right title for this protein-filled snack.

But “fluffy chocolate whipped Greek yogurt layered with creamy peanut butter Greek yogurt topped with chocolate and peanut butter granola” seemed like too much of a mouthful.

Historically, I’m an oatmeal eater for breakfast, but every now and then I get bored and need to switch things up a bit.  But if I don’t have some protein in the mornings, I can be a real bear {just ask the Tall Boy}.  Greek yogurt usually fits the bill when I’m looking for something different to jazz up my morning routine.  And topped with granola?  Well, even better – especially when that granola boasts 10 grams of protein per ½ cup serving size!

Nature ValleyTM Protein Granola is a versatile product that can be added on top of many other foods or used as an ingredient.  For my protein-packed breakfast, I layered Greek yogurt (half spiked with cocoa powder and a bit of vanilla and the other half with powdered peanut butter) with Nature ValleyTM Protein Granola Peanut Butter ‘N Dark Chocolate.

So.Crazy.Good.

I ate this for breakfast last Monday and it actually kept me satisfied until lunchtime – typically, I’m rustling around for a snack at my desk by mid-morning.

With clusters of whole grain oats, dark chocolate pieces (!!), and a touch of peanut butter, this is a great way to add protein throughout your day.  Believe me, if you’re a chocolate and peanut butter lover, you need to give this quick and easy breakfast a try!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons powdered peanut butter OR regular creamy peanut butter
  • Nature ValleyTM Peanut Butter 'N Dark Chocolate Protein Granola
Method
  1. Whisk 1 teaspoon cocoa powder and ¼ teaspoon vanilla into ½ cup of vanilla Greek yogurt until smooth. Add sweetener to taste, if desired (I did not).
  2. Mix 2 teaspoons of powdered peanut butter (or regular peanut butter) into remaining ½ cup of Greek yogurt.
  3. Layer chocolate yogurt and peanut butter yogurt into a bowl or glass. Top with Nature ValleyTM Peanut Butter 'N Dark Chocolate Protein Granola - as much as you'd like! I think it would be great mixed in between the layers, also.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
