Spread of ingredients for the recipe.

Ingredients

  • Plain yogurt: I prefer to use plain full-fat yogurt in this recipe, but you can also use Greek or a vanilla-flavored yogurt if you prefer. Yogurt is a great source of protein, calcium and vitamin B.
  • Peanut Butter: Peanut butter is high in protein, healthy fats and is full of essential minerals. I recommend using natural peanut butter that doesn’t contain any added sugar.
  • Banana: Bananas are packed full of antioxidants and are a great source of vitamins B6, C and dietary fiber. The riper the banana the more naturally sweet they will be and also contain more antioxidants.
  • Mini Chocolate Chips: No treat is complete without a little chocolate! Dark and semi-sweet chocolate contains antioxidants.

Allergy Substitutions

  • Gluten-Free: naturally gluten-free
  • Nut-Free: you can use any seed butter instead of peanut butter if you prefer.
  • Dairy-Free: you can easily use any brand of dairy-free yogurt and chocolate chips in this recipe.

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, mash one banana. Add in the yogurt and honey (if using) and stir until combined.
  • Pour the yogurt mixture onto the baking sheet and spread with a knife or spatula until you have a smooth layer.
  • Swirl on the peanut butter and sprinkle on the mini chocolate chips. Slice the remaining banana and place it on top of the yogurt.
  • Place the baking sheet in the freezer for at least 5 hours. Take the baking sheet out of the fridge and break the yogurt bark into chunks with your hands. 
  • Serve and enjoy.

COOKING WITH KIDS

You can easily have your toddlers and kids help make this peanut butter chocolate yogurt bark.

TODDLERS

  • Toddlers can help measure mix the banana, yogurt and honey.
  • They can help pour the yogurt mixture onto the baking sheet and spread out with a spoon or spatula.
  • Their favorite part might be to help add the chocolate, banana and peanut butter on top.
  • With help, they can place the yogurt bark into the freezer.

KIDS

  • You can pretty much let older kids make this recipe by themselves. 
  • They can pick out, measure and mix all of the ingredients.
  • Kids can pour the yogurt bark onto a baking sheet, spread out with a knife or spatula, add the toppings and place the finished yogurt bark into the freezer.

Tips for Making the Best Yogurt Bark

  • Size of Baking Dish: you can use 9 x 9″9 x 13″ or any baking sheet you have on hand. The thickness of the bark will be determined by the size pan you use.
  • Toppings: …don’t skimp!
  • Freezing Time: Let the bark freeze for at least 4 to 5 hours, but it’s best to freeze overnight if you can.
  • Storage: Store the yogurt bark in an airtight container and keep it in the freezer for up to 1 month. Be sure to store it in the freezer, or it can turn back into a liquid.
  • If your peanut butter is too thick you can place it in a small bowl and heat in the microwave in 20-second increments.

Notes

Age: 1 year and up
Yeild: roughly 16 pieces of bark
Storage: store in an air-tight container in the freezer for up to 1 month. 
Yogurt Notes: you can use Greek or regular plain yogurt for these recipes. Since Greek yogurt tends to be more tart, I would recommend you adding a little more honey to sweeten it. You can also use vanilla or honey flavored yogurt, which has more added sugar in it, so I would omit the honey from the recipe.
