For my week of making our work group’s Treatsie Tuesday snack, I wanted to lead by example with something healthy. Mainly because I’m dieting and exercising, and haven’t been able to eat much of the Treatsie treats lately. I wanted to make a guilt-free dessert no one had to say no to. So, I decided to make Greek Frozen Yogurt Dessert Bars from a recipe I found on Pinterest (where else?). I heavily altered the recipe though, as I was making this for 10 people to share. Here’s the recipe and pictures of my work in progress:
- 3 cups of Grape Nuts Fit: Cranberry Vanilla (or regular granola if you wish)
- 1 cup (or more as needed) of peanut butter
>> mix together with hands and then press into baking dish of choice – see the size I used as this yields more than you’d need for a pie dish
- 2 cups vanilla greek yogurt
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt (non-fat)
- 1 tub of lite cool whip
>> mix all filling ingredients together and the pour over crust; smooth until even
>> cover with foil and freeze overnight or until hard
>> let thaw slightly before serving; enjoy
I used Grape Nuts Fit with dried cranberries in there for a berry essence in the crust – mainly because I didn’t want to buy granola and I thought this would be a good substitution, and because it was going to be a bfast treat at work.
Colby thought I was baking more homemade dog bone biscuits for her, silly girl!
She was so cute that I let her lick the yogurt spoon when I was done.
Now it’s ready to sleep in the freezer overnight.
The finished product was loved by the Treatsie Club. Hooray! Success!
