Grain-Free Blueberry Yogurt Bars | Happy Gut For Life


I love mixing fruit with thick Greek style yogurt. That combo is the essence of these bars. They are creamy and delicious with just a little crunch in the crust. They are great for breakast, a snack, or to serve at a brunch. The sweetness of the blueberry jam provides the perfect contrast to the tangy yogurt.

What is Labneh?

I start by making Labneh – a very thick strainted yogurt that has just a pinch of salt and a little lemon juice. Adding the flavors to the yogurt gives it more of a cream cheese quality.



I strain my yogurt for at least 24 hours to make it very thick. Strained yogurt is a little less tart than regular yogurt and the texture is perfectly creamy. You can use the Labneh for sweet and savory dishes. Stir in some herbs and it makes a great dip for vegetables.

What do you need to make Blueberry Yogurt Bars?

Ingredients:

  • Labneh (full instructions below)
  • Honey
  • Vanilla
  • Blueberry Jam (see my quick recipe)
  • Fresh blueberries for topping
  • Almond flour
  • Butter or coconut oil
  • Salt

Equipment

  • Square pan
  • Parchment paper or square liner
  • Yogurt strainer
  • Mixing bowl
  • Mixing spoon

How do you make the bars?

These bars are very easy to assemble. The bottom layer is the only part that needs to be cooked. The creamy blueberry yogurt layer just needs to be combined and chilled, perserving the healthy probiotics in the yogurt.

The bars can be stored in the refrigertor for two to three days. The crust will get softer when it is stored.
