My peanut butter cottage cheese bark is the ultimate high-protein snack. This recipe is inspired by my friend Mayra over at @low.carb.love and I love that it tastes like a sweet treat but is made with wholesome ingredients that will fuel you with energy. Cottage cheese is having a moment in the spotlight in 2023 and I am here for it. Who doesn’t love an affordable, high-protein, easy-to-cook-with grocery staple; the recipe possibilities with cottage cheese are endless.

For more cottage cheese recipes, you can try my high protein pancakes linked here Healthy Pancakes, try adding cottage cheese to egg dishes, blend it into pasta sauces, turn it into Healthy Ice-Cream, and so much more! There are so many ways to enjoy cottage cheese in a way where its original flavor and/or texture is masked and transformed into something so delicious.  

This PB Cottage cheese bark is refreshing, high protein, and the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. The toppings are all customizable and can be made with any flavors you like.

I used my favorite protein powder by Flavcity which I will link here Shop FlavCity, if you use the code MODERNNONNA you can aways save 15% OFF!

You can add any fruits or toppings of choice. The possibilities for flavors are endless.  A few ideas: sprinkle on freeze-dried or fresh strawberry slices or blueberries or add a drizzle of tahini, almond butter, or nutella. 
Feel free to use yogurt instead of cottage cheese if you prefer the flavor of yogurt. If you use yogurt, you may have to add some sweetener as it can be quite tart. 
After the bark is frozen and cut into pieces, you can store it in a Ziplock in the freezer with pieces of parchment paper between each piece. 
If the bark is too hard to eat (or too frozen) just leave it out for a few minutes to thaw a bit. I like eating it after the 1 hour mark in the freezer as it still has a very soft but creamy texture.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
