In addition to hurting my back getting out of bed and being tired all the time, the other thing that makes me feel old is the fact that I now own eye cream. I guess it was bound to happen eventually. 

The packaging says it is “firming eye cream” but what I really could use it for is to help erase those dark circles under my eyes which seem to be a constant these days. In addition to being busy, the stress over work and school definitely doesn’t help. And hey, with my wedding getting close to a year away, it’s time to start some of these beauty treatments! 

In addition to beauty treatments like eye creams, I know I need to start watching what I eat more. I TRY to eat well most of the time. Sometimes though, on long days, I just don’t have the time or energy to put into making something lean to eat. This goes for breakfast too which lately has either consisted of sugary cereals or a random hodgepodge of things I find in the refrigerator. 

Well, these breakfast and snacking struggles are no more thanks to this Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bark. Made with just Greek yogurt, maple syrup, granola, strawberries, and blueberries, I get a snack that is both delicious and satisfying!

One of the stars of this dish is granola, and the one I used was Quakerยฎ Real Medleys SuperGrains Blueberry Pecan Granola. I love this granola because it is packed full of not one or two grains, but 7! (Whole grain oats, whole grain wheat, flaxseed, red quinoa, sunflower seeds, amaranth, and barley!) These grains help fill you up and are a great source of fiber and ALA omega-3. Real Medleys SuperGrains Granola is perfect in this bark, or for breakfast or mid-day snacking! It gives you some great energy to fuel your day and start it off strong! I found my Real Medleys SuperGrains Blueberry Pecan Granola at my local Walmart. Here’s a pic of the aisle where it was!

The other great thing is that this bark is SUPER easy to prepare. Simply mix the Greek yogurt and maple syrup and pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread the bark into a thin layer.

Then sprinkle on all sorts of goodies!

Then you cover and freeze it, and it is ready to serve!

With this quick and easy breakfast and snack, my day is sure to start out on the right foot! (And maybe eating better will help my eye cream be more effective, too)

Happy cooking!

Total Time
2 hr 10 min
Ingredients
  1. 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  2. 3 tbs maple syrup
  3. 1/2 cup Quakerยฎ Real Medleys SuperGrains Blueberry Pecan Granola
  4. 1/2 cup blueberries
  5. 3 to 4 strawberries, sliced
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Mix Greek yogurt and syrup in a bowl until combined. Pour onto prepared baking sheet and spread into a thin layer. Top with Real Medleys SuperGrains Blueberry Pecan Granola, blueberries, and strawberries.
  3. Cover the baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil. Place in the freezer for two hours, or overnight, until the bark is fully frozen. Slice into desired squares. Serve immediately and keep stored in the freezer in an airtight container or bag.
Notes
  1. If you find the bark to be too cold to eat, pull the bark out of the freezer a few minutes before you decide to serve it. The bark will soften and warm up quickly. Just be careful not to leave it out too long or the yogurt will become too soft again and not hold its shape.

  1. Getting old sure does stink, but it happens to all of us… and any excuse for a little pampering I will take! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love this breakfast bark, Shelby! Hard to believe something this delicious is only 5 ingredients! Woot woot! I could eat this pretty bark for breakfast daily! Cheers, girlie! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. I made something similar the other day because I wanted to be more healthier and then forgot about it in the freezer… lol! I love that you used granola.. so clever! ๐Ÿ™‚
    ps. age really creeps up on you, doesnยดt it? I can remember when I was 18. It was just the other day!!!

    • Oh no! You need to grab that out of the freezer now! I love the little bit of crunch that the granola adds to this!

  3. This is such a great breakfast idea. And I think this would be a much better snack idea when I’m hungry than the peanut butter cups that usually tempt me. I’m a big granola fan so this sounds delish!

  4. This is such a great snack! I can absolutely see myself making huge batches and eating it through the day! I’ll have to hide it from my husband too ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for sharing this with us at #SaucySaturdays!

    • You sure can! The purpose of the syrup is really just to sweeten up the plain Greek Yogurt. So whatever maple syrup, agave syrup, or honey suits your preference would work!

  5. looks yummy!
    so, does it break apart or do you cut it? I want to serve this at a gathering. can it sit out very long? thanks!

    • I like to cut it just for the fun shapes but you can just break it up if you want! Unfortunately this cannot sit out too long unless it is on ice. Since the Greek yogurt is relatively liquid-like, as it thaws it begins to melt and makes a bit of a mess. The best thing to do is serve it quickly after pulling it out of the freezer. Hope this helps!

  6. I made it with toasted oatmeal and strawberries. It was amazing. Did anyone else have issues of the cold really hurting your teeth? It killed mine, and I do not have very sensitive teeth. It will not deter me from making it again, though! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hmm I haven’t heard about it yet, but I’d imagine that it could be quite cold. What might help is you could let it sit out for a few minutes before eating so that it can soften and warm up a little bit. Glad you enjoyed it though!

  7. This looks delicious. Am looking for a good-tasting CE gluten-free granola. . . Do any exist?
    AND. . . which other CE type of yogurt could be substituted?
    Thank you!!

    • Hey Debbie! I’m not positive on CE/gluten-free granolas, but if you are having a hard time finding one, I might suggest trying to make your own. It can be so simple to do and there are a ton of recipes out there! Also, if you can’t find plain Greek Yogurt, you could also use a plain yogurt that you find at your grocer. Sorry it’s a little vague, but I hope it helps a little!

  8. “Then you cover and freeze it, …” that’s where I stopped reading.
    I would have to cut one of the drawers of my freezer, and cut a hole in the door of the freezer with a hacksaw to fit in a baking sheet.

    • That would be a problem! You can always try putting it in a tupperware container or other flat-bottomed dish that fits in your freezer. You may need to make a few layers, but it should work!

  9. Great idea to make before bed and throw in the freezer for the morning. I would suggest Greek yogurt is going to be less watery (icey?).

    • This was linked in a Hello Healthy blog post (from MyFitnessPal) with the following nutrition facts for half the recipe as a serving size:

  10. Oh. My. Gosh! My family LOVES this!!! I used Vanilla Light Greek Yogurt and honey – it was soooooo good! And I also used a Pampered Chef egg slicer for the strawberries. Quick and easy. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can see that I’ll be making this many times in the near future! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for this awesome recipe!

    • Hi Linda! I’m so happy to hear you liked this recipe! And I love your idea of using an egg slicer for strawberries- what a time saver!

  11. Hi, your recipe looks great but I just wanted to check – are you recommending that it is eaten straight from the freezer?

    • Hi Selena. If it has just set I would recommend eating it right from the freezer because it isn’t too hard yet. If, however, it’s been in the freezer for a few days, I would recommend leaving it out for a few minutes to allow it to soften some before digging in. Let me know if this helps!

  12. how long does this keep in the freezer? There’d only be me eating it so i was wondering if it would last or i should just make it in single portions.

    • I would say it should keep in the freezer for about a month in a sealed container. If you are concerned though you can always make a smaller portion! Thanks for your question Beky!

    • Hi Victoria! Yup! I broke it apart and put it into a tupperware container to store. I put a small piece of parchment in between the layers just to make sure they didn’t stick together.

  13. My husband and I made this last night and each had a piece this morning for breakfast. We wanted a healthier/quick breakfast option and this was really yummy! It did start melting after being out for a few minutes so I am glad we ate them right away instead of taking them with us to school/work. I do have one question…. How long can they stay in the freezer for?

    • I’m glad to hear you like it! I’ve only ever frozen it short term, but I would say if it is in an airtight container that you could try it for 6 months or so and see if that works. Thanks for visiting Jillian!

    • I’ve only ever kept mine in for a week or two, but I looked online and it looks like you can keep it in the freezer for up to two months. Hope this helps!
