Frozen Yogurt Superfood Bars

Frozen yogurt superfood bars recipe

The weekend is finally here. This is a time where many people fall off their healthy eating plan, let down their hair, and indulge (that’s totally okay by the way). But in case you want a sweet treat to have on hand that won’t totally leave you feeling regretful come monday, these frozen yogurt superfood bars. Tangy, creamy Greek yogurt and fresh strawberries sit on top of a crust with hidden superfoods; chia seeds, flaxseeds, and walnuts. ┬áThis recipe isn’t overly sweet and would actually make a really nice breakfast bar in the summertime due to it being chilled, high in protein, and providing ample healthy fats to keep you full.
