If you already know you are going to love this Salted Caramel Granola Yoghurt Bark then skip ahead to the recipe card below. Or, first let’s discuss the recipe in more detail.
What ingredients do I need?
There are only 6 ingredients:
Thick yoghurt: I use vanilla coconut yoghurt as it has simple ingredients and a lovely vanilla flavour but you can use any flavour. It has to be thick for the best bark and other Greek-style dairy-free yoghurts will also work.
Vegan salted caramel protein powder: this turns the yoghurt into the best protein mix and I love the salted caramel blend from Macromike, it’s so smooth. I also now have a discount code for their range: MM-AMY-10 for 10% off everything. Other flavours and brands will also work.
Maple syrup: just a little helps make this yoghurt bark even smoother and you can swap this for agave or date syrup, for example, or vegan honey.
Vegan caramel sauce: this is my favourite cheat’s caramel recipe of which I always have a jar in the fridge. I’ve added the recipe below or you can use ant vegan caramel sauce, for example the Natures Charm one is delicious.
Granola or crunchy muesli: for sprinkling on top. You could even break up my Banoffee Granola Bark for adding on to this Salted Caramel Granola Yoghurt Bark.
White chocolate chips: because they work so well with salted caramel favours.
Dark chocolate shavings: for extra chocolate goodness. This is not essential but I love the contrast in sweet and richness.
How do I make this Salted Caramel Granola Yoghurt Bark?
This snack is so easy and quick to make in a few steps:
Stir together the yoghurt, protein and syrup: till smooth.
Spread the mix into a tin: and smooth over the top to about 1-cm thick.
Drizzle over the caramel and sprinkle with granola: all over the top.
Add on the chocolate chips: and then freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight.
Before serving add the shaved dark chocolate: to add some more chocolate.
Break up this yoghurt bark into shards: and enjoy.
How do I store this Salted Caramel Granola Yoghurt Bark?
When you’re not eating this bark, keep it stored, covered well, in the freezer as it starts to melt quite quickly. You can store it this way for up to 1 month.
How do I make my own caramel sauce?
This uses my favourite quick caramel recipe and if you don’t want to have any leftovers, follow this recipe. Stir together 1 tbsp runny smooth nut or seed butter with ½ tbsp melted coconut oil and ½ tbsp maple syrup till smooth. You can add a pinch of salt for a salted caramel, too.
Is this recipe nut-free and gluten-free?
Yes, this is free of nuts as longs as your yoghurt, granola and caramel sauce do not contain nuts. Check that your granola is also gluten-free, where needed.
Can I add other toppings?
Yes you can use this as a base recipe for any number of combinations:
Peanut butter and berries: swap the caramel for peanut butter and add fresh berries.
Tahini pistachio: swap the caramel sauce for tahini and add pistachios instead of granola.
Triple chocolate: add some chocolate sauce or chocolate spread instead of the caramel and add even more chocolate chips or chunks on top.
