Talk about a delicious snack! I was kind of hesitant when it came to this recipe, but WOW! I found the recipe here: http://www.mandysrecipeboxblog.com/2013/06/veggie-bars.html

I decided to use a spicy ranch mix instead of the regular ranch, because I’m in love with anything spicy. I also used greek yogurt instead of mayo, and it still tasted great!

After cooking the seamless croissant dough for 10 minutes, I topped it with the mixture of greek yogurt, cream cheese, and 1/4 of the spicy ranch seasoning packet.

I decided to use broccoli, red pepper, shredded carrots, green onions, and chopped spinach. After spreading the veggies across the top of the bars, I put them back in the oven on broil for just under 5 minutes. It crisped up the edges of the crust a little, as well as gave the veggies a chance to melt into the cream cheese mixture.

And the result is amazing! I probably could have sat and ate the entire pan, but I managed to have some self-control.
