Frozen Yogurt Trail Mix Bars

Hi Friends!

Happy New Year!! Last year on January 1st, I posted a recipe featuring Greek yogurt- Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes. They’re my favorite pancakes ever and I make them all the time. This year I decided to continue my  tradition and share another yummy recipe that features my favorite yogurt on New Years Day!

Some of you may have seen them on Instagram or Facebook already and LOTS of you have asked for the recipe. Ask and you shall receive icon smile Frozen Yogurt Trail Mix Bars

I give you- Frozen Yogurt Trail Mix Bars!

Aren’t they pretty?! Probably the prettiest thing I’ve made in a while. Remember when I made these Frozen Yogurt Bites? I dipped them in chocolate the first time but now I made them all the time with just yogurt and granola and eat them as a snack. Well, these bars are similar…I just took them to the next level. I was tired of eating regular granola bars so took all the things I like in my trailmix/granola bars- granola, fruit, nuts, a few chocolate chips- and decided to try a frozen version.

I used bananas and strawberries that I already had in the freezer in mine. I just pulled them out, chopped them up and threw them in the yogurt…but I think fresh fruit would work just fine. I also chose to use half plain yogurt and half flavored. If you want them sweeter, you could use all flavored.

  33. Made these this afternoon but was too full from lunch to try one… they look amazing, though, and I’m definitely having one for breakfast in the morning!!

    [WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ’0 which is not a hashcash value.

  34. Looks delish! How do you store the bars after? In the freezer or fridge?

    • i store them in an airtight container in the freezer. then pull them out and let them sit at room temp for about 5 min before you eat them!

  35. Wow! Just found these and I absolutely love the idea! Thank you so much, I’m definitely going to try them. And tweet about them, right now. This should be spread! ;)

  40. Hello, Lindsay!
    Many thanks for these yogurt bars! I made them four times in the last 10 days. My kids love them. I use mostly organic ingredients and they taste awesome. I place them in a square silicon baking pan and that makes for a quick removal once frozen. I am looking forward to making more of your recipes. I always wonder what does a dietitian eat, because you have so much knowledge about food.
    Keep up the good work!
    Ines

  41. I absolutely love this recipe! It was SO easy to make! I don’t think it even took 5 minutes! Fabulous time saver. Best part: it’ll be ready to go tomorrow morning!

    I shared your link on my own blog to tell everyone about how great this recipe is! I made your recipe first but I also modified it a bit to try something new so if you would like to check that out here’s the link to my own blog: http://thebigbootybride.blogspot.com/

    Thanks for the great post! Can’t wait to eat them!

  42. Making these now! I used blueberry and banana and used a granola with flax seed. Also added a tsp of agave nectar for extra sweetness (I have a sweet tooth). Can’t wait to cut em up and try!

  43. This is an amazing recipe. Will bookmark, try to make and like to share on G+. Keep Sharing. Thank you for sharing.

  44. Hey,

    I made these and they’re delicious but storing them in the freezer isn’t working so good because they freeze so hard. If I move a small batch at a time into the fridge will they just liquify?
    Allison recently posted..Currently Reading

    • yes, they will just turn back to yogurt. i leave mine in the freezer and take them out 5-10 min before i want to eat them. It gives them time to thaw and i’m able to eat them with no trouble.

  45. This looks delicious so I made it tonight! Just wondering how long it took yours to initially freeze?

  46. going to try with popsicle molds

  47. so with the yogurt i guess they aren’t dairy free? or is greek yogurt dairy free?

  48. are these dairy free? if so i guess greek yogurt is dairy free?

  49. Yum!! Just pinned these!

  50. Came across this recipe on pinterest and just had to comment, such a great idea! I bet you could also freeze these in muffin liners for an easy single serving idea! Take care :)

  51. What size pan do you use? And how many bars does it make?

    • You can use any size pan. I think i used a 9×9 and cut into whatever size bars or squares you want!

      • I think you’d have very different results if you used a 12X17 jellyroll pan instead of an 8X4 loaf pan. I’ll try the 9X9 and see how it works. (By the by, these look yummy!)

  52. I’m so glad I found your blog through PBF today :) I printed off several of your recipes!
