Easy High Protein Bark

If you’re looking for a *low carb* way to beat those unhealthy cravings in record time, this is the one to try!

Keep in mind that this recipe is more about **thinking outside the box** a little bit. To make it, all you need is to use are these **3 base ingredients!** Greek yogurt, protein powder, and a topping.

**Protein Bark Base Ingredients**:

1 1/2 Cups Greek Yogurt - Full fat works best

2 Scoops Protein Powder

1/8 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum - *Only use this combined with a lower fat Greek yogurt to help prevent iciness


In a mixing bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups of Greek yogurt and 2 scoops of protein powder until smooth.

The ratio for a “**single**” serving would be 3/4 cup of Greek yogurt or 170 grams to 1 scoop or 30 grams of protein powder.

Once your mix is smooth, take out a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and pour your mix into it.

Make sure to evenly distribute it across your sheet and **flatten** it out.

**Pro tip!** Full fat Greek yogurt which is typically much creamier, will freeze better. Lower fat Greek yogurt that has a more watery consistency may get a bit icy. If you want this recipe lower in fat and calories or only have a low fat Greek yogurt on hand, you can help *eliminate* the iciness by adding in a little xanthan gum to your mix.

*Don’t have a baking sheet?* Use a glass dish.

From here, your **3rd ingredient** for your protein bark arrives!

Top it with whatever you’re craving which makes this list endless…

Some toppings I like with favorite flavors/textures?

Peanut Butter/Pretzel Mix

My favorite lately for this easy protein bark has been this peanut butter pretzel mix we used today, I like to crush it up over the top of it.

Remember that the flavors you use are completely up to you, just make sure they **compliment** each other.

Vanilla Greek yogurt with cookies & cream protein powder, salted caramel Greek yogurt with cheesecake protein powder, chocolate Greek yogurt with a mint protein powder, and so on.

Another thing you can do here to **level up the recipe** is to melt some nut butter or chocolate in the microwave and drizzle it over your topping using a spoon, it won’t add too many calories.

Last, put it into the freezer for a **few hours** or until frozen.

Once frozen, remove it from the freezer and **break it up into servings**. I’d personally consider this whole recipe 2 serving so if you want to double or triple the recipe you can do that below.

Also, to keep this fresh for as long as possible make sure to store your protein bark in as **airtight** of container as you can get.
