Yogurt Bark

Yogurt Bark

We first started making yogurt bark when we were in the recipe testing stage of our second book The School Year Survival Cookbook. It was going to be in our breakfast section but, in the end, we had to take it out because it was too similar to the yogurt parfait popsicles you can find in the book today. Our kids just loved eating popsicles in the morning and so they won out. However, a close second was the bark.

We never stopped making this easy dish and neither did our children. During the holidays, we even shared the recipe with our friends at well.ca while making a baking video that also included a more decadent version using dark chocolate sprinkled with holiday candy.  If you’re looking for a breakfast or snack your kids can make and grab for themselves from the freezer, then this is that snack. If you’re looking for a healthy snack you can eat while you walk around the house looking for the permission slip they need, like, now, this is that snack, too.

2 cups Greek style yogurt (we used strawberry flavored)
1 – 2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup granola
1/2 cup halved or quartered fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)

Other toppings could include:
crushed nuts or seeds
coconut
chocolate chips
cinnamon
dried fruits

Place a piece of parchment on a baking sheet, set aside. In a small bowl, mix the yogurt and maple syrup until combined.

On the parchment, spread yogurt in an even layer; about 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle yogurt with granola and berries.

Place baking sheet in freezer for 2 to 4 hours or until frozen solid. Remove baking sheet from freezer and transfer parchment to a clean cutting board. Using a sharp knife, break the bark into pieces. Store pieces in freezer bags in the freezer.
