  • 2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 banana sliced
  • ½ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 4 tablespoons creamy almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa nibs


  • Spoon ½ cup yogurt each into 2 small glasses or jars. Top each with half of the banana slices and 1-tablespoon almond butter. Sprinkle with half of cocoa powder and nibs.
  • Add another layer with rest of yogurt, then top with remaining ingredients.


  • Use Greek yogurt for extra protein and thick, creamy layers. If yogurt is too thin, fruit and add-on may sink through layers.
  • Flavored yogurt such as vanilla is optional, but will add a lot of sugar to recipe.
  • If you make ahead of time just stored covered in fridge the night before. Be sure bananas aren't exposed at top layer or they will oxidize
  • Prepping ahead will also help soften the oats a bit, but I prefer the extra texture.
