Frozen Yogurt Breakfast Bars: A FUN Way to Simplify a Healthy Breakfast!

It’s no secret that this summer has been insanely hot. And well…how we came upon these Frozen Yogurt Bars just might show how much of a ditz I can be.

So, recently we moved into a new home and it was everything I could have ever hoped for…until summer arrived. It was then discovered that the small floor vents that were quickly overlooked at the time did not seem to be sufficient in cooling the house. As a Texan I felt stupid- I should know to check out how well a central air system works in a house. It didn’t take long for us to call the AC man. By the time he showed up it was reading 107 degrees inside the house! Crazy!!

And then it was discovered that the fuse box switch was flipped off…and I felt even more foolish.

We stumbled across this idea when the girls requested ice-cream what felt like the millionth time when dealing with that heat. Who could blame them?! Not wanting to cave on my we must eat some-what healthy stance we compromised on creating frozen yogurt bars. It was a pleasant surprise as to how well they turned out!

How to Make Frozen Yogurt Bars:

To make these breakfast bars you will only need four easy to find ingredients (Yoplait Yogurt, granola, butter, and fruit). Creating your frozen yogurt bars is a very quick process, although freezing times may vary. If you plan to make these for breakfast plan on making them the night before and letting them freeze over night.

To start you will want to melt a decent size spoonful of butter in a glass baking pan and pour in 1-2 cups of granola. How much of each that you use is really going to depend on the size of your pan and personal preference. For a 7×11 inch pan I used 2 cups of granola.

Mix the melted butter and granola together and then press into the bottom of your pan to form a crust. Pour a good size handful of your fruit of choice over the granola.

In an oven preheated to 350 degrees bake your granola crust until your fruit softens. You can tell your fruit is at the right level of cooked typically when it starts to glisten (if using berries). This typically takes about 15 minutes.

Then take your Yoplait Yogurt of choice and pour it into your pan until it fully covers your granola crust. We used 8 containers of Yoplait Greek Yogurt when making our frozen yogurt bars.
