This Cranberry Pepita Yogurt Bark is the perfect healthy treat to satisfy that sweet tooth. It’s naturally sweetened and is sure to become a household favorite.
Oh man, y’all, this Cranberry Pepita Yogurt Bark recipe is inspired by one of my favorite desserts ever: white chocolate bark with dried cranberries and pistachios. I’ve been craving this treat, and my son has been requesting it. SO, I decided to “lighten” it up and make it the perfect snack for little kiddos AND adults. While it is definitely not as sweet (or chocolaty) as the original version, it’s the perfect amount to satisfy that sweet tooth. Plus, I added some chocolate chips to add that element of chocolate flavor in there.
Cranberry Pepita Yogurt Bark
Not only is this recipe delicious, but it is also INSANELY easy. The hardest part is waiting for it to freeze.
A few things to have on hand to make this recipe even easier:
- a large baking sheet
- parchment paper
While neither of these items are completely necessary (you can use any dish you want to make the bark), it WILL make it a lot easier. The baking sheet will give you plenty of room to spread the yogurt mixture, and the parchment paper will help the bark not stick to the pan once it has been frozen.
Grab your ingredients:
- plain Greek yogurt
- maple syrup
- dried cranberries (unsweetened)
- semi-sweet chocolate chips
First, place the greek yogurt in a bowl and add the maple syrup. Mix well. Spread the mixture into a thin layer (1/4-1/2 inch thick) on the parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the cranberries, pepitas, and chocolate chips evenly over the top of the yogurt mixture. Pressly lightly using a spatula to ensure the pieces get “stuck” in the yogurt.
Finally, place the tray into the freezer and let it chill until it is frozen. Once the bark is frozen through, remove from the freezer and break (or cut) the yogurt bark into pieces. Size is up to you! The Cranberry Pepita Yogurt Bark is ready to eat. Try not to eat the whole thing in one sitting and save some for the kiddos. 😉
*Store the yogurt bark in the freezer. Otherwise, it will melt into a mess.*
The kids absolutely love it! Try it out and let me know what you thinking by tagging @imperfectlybalancedsara and using #imperfectlybalancedsararecipes.
