The struggle is so real in my world when it comes to breakfast! Anyone else? We typically have breakfast on the go since the twins like to sleep in most days. <that’ll be tough when we start Kinder in August>
So I finally decided that the waffles, pancakes, and granola bars we always ate, were enough. We all needed to eat something delicious yet easy to make ahead of time and just a tad bit healthier. Cue this amazing Yogurt Bark! It’s 5 ingredients (more if you want to add in different fruits, flax seed oil, or chia seeds) and only took 10 minutes to prep.
We stuck with the basics the first time around since I didn’t know how everyone would react to it. Insert eye roll here, because yes – my kids are very picky eaters. Anything that works, stays around here! You can substitute basically any of this for items you know your family will love. The main goal is to get the maple syrup and yogurt mixed well together and laid onto a baking sheet. Once you have that base, you can easily add fruits, granola, chia seeds, you name it!
Once you have everything laid out onto the baking sheet, pop it in the freezer for 2 hours (or more). Remove from the parchment paper and break it up into pieces. I tried to do them in mickey shapes but with all the different textured and sized toppings it wasn’t easy. Just go ahead and break them into uneven pieces.
As a note, if you aren’t going to be able to eat all of it in one sitting, pack it up in an air tight container and keep it in the freezer. Bring it out as you need it and be sure to eat soon after since it can melt! Happy Eating!
