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.
