While browsing Pinterest for inspiration one day, I happened upon this billiant 2 ingredient cereal bars. They looked a bit like a rice krispie treat, or a big Fruit Loop bar, all held in place with frozen yogurt along the bottom.
Thanks to innovation from brands in the natural food world, both cereal and yogurt can be found to fit whatever diet type you follow, cause we've hopefully all graduated from those mallow filled bowls of charm. One of my favorite snacks is coconut milk or almond milk yogurt. There are tons of options for both available in many places now, and range in amount of ingredients (I always try to go with the most simple list.) However, if you can handle dairy, I think a full fat greek (thick!) yogurt would work great for this recipe.
And when it comes to cereal, you know we've got you covered here at Barefoot. Our grain free cereal selection is ever growing, yet remains consciously curated — we only pick the best (the stuff we can't get enough of!) For example, the Lark Ellen Farms granola bites I used to create this recipe is crunchy beyond crunchy. Big nuggets of granola made with not just one, or two, but SIX different kinds of sprouted nuts and seeds fill this bag. Why sprouted? Nutrition, in a nutshell. (Ha!) Sprouting and then drying a nut or seed allows some of the nutrients to develop without the breakdown or damage that can occur when a nut is made crispy by baking at high temperatures. It's the difference between letting your clothes flap in the gentle breeze on a laundry line versus tumbling them at temperatures so hot you can't touch them in a sealed machine.
So rework an old idea. That's the easy way to create delicious new things without the junk your body doesn't like to eat. And that's just what I've done here!
1 Cup of yogurt
1/2-3/4 bag grain free granola, like Lark Ellen Farms' Granola Bites
1. On a sheet of parchment paper on a small cookie sheet or a silicon baking mat, spread 1 Cup of yogurt into a square or rectangle, about 1 cm thick.
2. Sprinkle granola bites on top of the yogurt to cover evenly.
3. Push down slightly so no granola is loose.
4. Freeze for 2-3 hours, remove and carefully slice into bar shape, cutting edges to even them up if desired. Careful not to cut your mat here.
5. Remove and enjoy frozen. These will melt quickly so pop them back in the freezer between snacks.
