These bars have a few components, but trust me, they are actually super simple to make!

Frozen yogurt bar ingredients 

  • Frozen mixed berries: I used blueberries and raspberries, but feel free to use whatever you prefer or have on hand.
  • Lemon juice: you could omit this, but I love the extra freshness that it adds.
  • Medjool dates: this gives the base its sweetness and helps to hold it all together.
  • Rolled oats: this helps to make the base of the bars. I haven’t tested substitutes for this, but I’m sure almond flour would also work! You’ll likely just have to use slightly more than the recipe calls for.
  • Raw pecans: adds a sweet nutty and buttery flavour to the base.
  • Sea salt: to balance the sweetness and enhance some of the other flavours.
  • Greek yogurt: using full-fat yogurt really helps to give these bars the creamiest texture. If you’re dairy-free, you could also use a thick plant-based yogurt instead.
  • Maple syrup: the maple syrup adds a touch of sweetness to the yogurt filling. I find maple syrup works best here as it’s a lot easier to mix into the yogurt than honey.
  • Vanilla extract: a touch of vanilla helps to add a subtle flavour to the greek yogurt.
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Coconut oil

How to store frozen yogurt bars 

You can store these bars in an airtight container in the freezer for up to two months. Placing some parchment paper between slices can prevent them from sticking to each other. Allow to thaw for about 5-10 minutes to soften them up a bit before eating.
