Roasted Nectarine Parfait

Roasted Nectarine Parfait with easy homemade granola is a delicious summer breakfast.

Remember that fun thing we used to do on Wednesdays over here before PW came into our lives? It involved a whole bunch of pictures of what I ate throughout the day and a link up with hundreds of other peeps doing the same. Ring a bell?

Well, it’s back for today! We’re on a one week hiatus until a few of us tackle another round of PW recipes so I thought I’d join the party again over at Jenn’s.

Picmonkey got collages and I’m in love. Feast your eyes not only on all the food that I ate yesterday but also a totally customizable collage! Seriously, if you need the ability to make a collage, this is the best one I’ve used. It lets you drag the boxes to whatever size you want and rotate the orientation of the whole collage itself. Geek out session over.

  1. egg + egg white + bacon waffle sandwich with berries
  2. leftover salmon + roasted strawberry couscous + simple spinach salad
  3. roasted nectarine yogurt parfait…more below on that!
  4. the last triple chocolate protein bar + fitmixer aminos
  5. a spicy lentil + veggie red curry dish that you’ll be hearing about later this week + broccoli + rice

Not a bad day of food now that it’s all out in front of me.

Jenn’s theme for the month of June is sensible snacking. So in light of that, I threw together a quick parfait by roasting a nectarine and making my own chia + oat granola at the same time.

Since strawberries worked so well, I figured nectarines wouldn’t be a bad choice either for the whole roasting thing. I’m kind of tempted to see if there isn’t any fruit made better by roasting because these were awesome. Bananas might be weird though…

I combined the roasted nectarines with some Chobani & chia oat granola and had a custom, healthy parfait in 10 minutes. A little more special and tasty than just layering the usual stuff but without a huge time commitment. Win, win.

I loved the added chia seeds in the granola for an extra health boost but couldn’t stop thinking they were small bugs every time I lifted the spoon to my mouth. I think the ant incident scarred me. When they’re not tormenting me in my pants, I now think they’re in my food.

This post made me put together a banana berry parfait for dessert instead of grabbing cookies. Also, thanks for the pic monkey site! I have been wondering how those collages are made.

Mmm roasted nectarines! I've had grilled fruit, and roasted grapes, but never roasted nectarines. I love them fresh and can only imagine their deliciousness when roasted.
