Sunbutter and blackberry jam overnight parfait

Misha makes quick work of berry picking.
Berry picking is in full swing at my mini-farm. We've got blackberries and golden raspberries coming out of our ears which is a good thing! I've even got two four-legged berry pickers. I would have two amazing berry pickers if I could get Misha and Nika, my husky and malamute, to pick the berries rather than eat the berries.

More, more, more
Even with all the dogs' nibbling, I still have berries galore. I've been using blackberries, especially, to make blackberry crisp, blackberry pancakes and just today, Sunbutter and Blackberry Jam Overnight Parfaits. I was thinking peanut butter and jelly when I put this recipe together.

Don't they look delicious? They are good for you too with an abundance of vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Sunbutter and Blackberry Jam Overnight Parfait
 (suitable for ACD-phase 3)

1/2 cup quinoa flakes (or rolled oats)
1 T. chia seed
1 scoop vegan protein powder
stevia to taste
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
blackberry chia jam (1 cup blackberries and 1 T. chia seed)
1 T. unsweetened sunbutter
extra blackberries for garnish or just popping in your mouth

Mix together the quinoa flakes, chia seeds, protein powder, stevia and almond milk in a storage container and place in the fridge overnight.
Make blackberry chia jam. Place blackberries and chia seed in your food processor and puree. Store in the fridge overnight.
In the a.m., assemble the parfaits. Put sunbutter in a small bowl and thin slightly by adding some almond milk and vanilla stevia drops.
To make the parfaits, layer the overnight quinoa, sunbutter and blackberry chia jam in a tall glass. Garnish with additional blackberries.
