  • 1 cup (150 g)
    frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup (178 g)
    Medjool dates, pits removed
  • 2 cups (204 g)
  • 1 cup (240 mL)
  • ¼ cup (28 g)
    ground flaxseeds
  • 1 tsp (3 g)
    ground cinnamon
  • 1½ cups (360 mL)
    unsweetened soy yogurt


  1. Place the frozen berries in a saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally. The fruits will begin to thaw and release their juices. When heated through, remove from the heat.
  2. In a food processor, blend the dates until smooth.
  3. Add the oats, almond butter, ground flaxseed, and cinnamon. Blend again until well combined.
  4. Transfer the mix to a lined 11 x 7 inch (18 x 28cm) baking dish and press firmly into the base of the dish. The more firmly you press, the better the bars will hold together.
  5. Top with the yogurt and spread out evenly.
  6. Dot the yogurt with the stewed berries and use a butter knife to swirl.
  7. Place into the freezer and let freeze for 1 - 2 hours, or until the bars are solid enough to cut.
  8. When removed from the freezer, cut into squares or bars of the desired size.
  9. Let thaw for 3 - 5 minutes and enjoy!


  • Nutrition tip: aim to use plant-based yogurt that is fortified with calcium.


  • Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 weeks, with parchment paper between cut slices of the bars to prevent them from sticking to each other.

Ashley - May 18, 2024, 1:01 a.m.

I'm sorry but this recipe isn't it. The photos are really pretty, but even in the video you can see you are kind of forced to eat it half frozen. Once completely thawed, the bars will turn into a goey mess, so it's wildly impractical.

I also found it really hard to get the base right. You have to add water to the dates, or most blenders won't be able to handle blending them. But then there's too much liquid and the base will get way too soggy (which again becomes a problem when thawed).

I liked the idea, but I think it would be better to come up with a baked base and then perhaps use some agar to help hold the yoghurt top layer together. The flavor of the base is nice, I added some coconut shreds too mine as well.

PUL Team - May 18, 2024, 11:22 a.m.

Hi Ashley, I'm sorry to hear that this recipe didn't work out for you. I understand the challenges you faced. It's best to enjoy these bars after letting them thaw for about 10 minutes straight from the freezer; they shouldn't be left to thaw completely becuase as you said, any longer and they start to lose their shape. For the base, you might try using medjool dates, which are naturally softer and usually don't need extra water to blend smoothly. This could prevent the base from becoming too soggy. Your idea to add coconut shreds sounds delicious! Thank you for your feedback and for giving the recipe a try.

Charmi - May 10, 2024, 12:35 a.m.

Love this recipe! Made it for friends when hosting breakfast one weekend, and it was a hit! I’m really looking forward to making it again this summer!
I was introduced to PUL by my sis years ago, and both of us have been a huge fan!! Now other relatives and friends have also joined the fan club 😊. Thanks so much for creating such amazing and delicious recipes, Sadia and team 🧡

PUL Team - May 10, 2024, 2:08 a.m.

Aww thanks for helping make our community so special for all these years, Charmi! Sending lots of love to you and your sis 🫶

Liana - March 11, 2024, 8:28 p.m.

I just made these and I’m really looking forward to trying them!
I also want to say thank you so much for all your wonderful recipes, I’ve been looking for nutritious and yummy vegan recipes and having them all in one place is wonderful! Also big kudos for how nicely you respond to some of these comments. My goodness! Especially the ones where they alter the recipe and then rate it low. Of course it’s gonna turn out differently! Thanks PUL team! 🙂

PUL Team - March 11, 2024, 11:08 p.m.

Hi Liana, aw we're so thrilled that the frozen yogurt bars were enjoyed and thanks for the kind words! Our goal is to make the app and website a one-stop shop for all things plant-based cooking and nutrition 🤩

Steph LP - March 9, 2024, 2:44 p.m.

Very good but a little bit to frozen

PUL Team - March 10, 2024, 6:18 p.m.

Hey Steph, in case it helps, you can leave the bars out at room temperature to thaw for a few minutes before eating them :)

Hannah C. Rosenblatt - March 3, 2024, 9:51 a.m.

Made them and feel like after a battle now 😅
The base killed my small food processor and then challenged my big one. I take it as a call to pre cut anything that starts with "blend the dates until smooth" or to not blend dates at all.

The bars are now in the freezer. I have no doubts that they will be delicious - but I hope they also taste like a win too 😅

PUL Team - March 3, 2024, 5:15 p.m.

Oh no, what an adventure! We hope your food processor is okay and you love the bars, Hannah 🙌 In case it helps, our food processors tend to be between 500-1200 watts. Adding liquid, such as water, can sometimes help the mixture blend smoother.

maxine - April 25, 2024, 9:34 p.m.

Hi I've just made these to and had trouble blending the dates, I've just YouTube it and said you can soak them in water for 2 hrs so I'll try that next time, also you can make a date paste, and date syrup, hope this helps xx

Nazira - Feb. 25, 2024, 12:04 a.m.

I use frozen mixed berries instead of stewed berries for ease and love this recipe!

Sara Gabriela - Feb. 16, 2024, 5:35 a.m.

Firstly, I need to say I am a PUL fan, even though I am not a vegan. After reading the reviews of this recipe, I feel like I am the only one who had trouble with this recipe. I love the idea of it, but the execution was harder than I expected - and I'm not a beginner in the kitchen. It would have helped if my food processor were bigger, and if I had the right size pan. But my end product was nowhere near as pretty as the PUL photos - my berries did not swirl, they just kind of mushed into the yogurt. In terms of taste, this isn's bad, but I feel like vanilla yogurt would be much more tasty than plain (I used dairy greek yogurt for the high protein content). I like the crust, though I found it crumbly and messy to eat. Trying to decide if I would make this again to try to improve it... I do love a pre-made, on-the-go breakfast.

PUL Team - Feb. 18, 2024, 2:41 a.m.

Hey Sara, thanks for the feedback! We have a couple tips, if you do decide to try these again: did you weigh your dates? Ours are fairly large and soft, but we have seen some that are smaller and harder - for those, we would suggest soaking them in hot water for a few minutes to help plump them out. This can help to keep the base from crumbling. Our frozen berries are a mix of small berries (blueberries, raspberries, red currants etc.). If yours has larger fruit, like strawberries, you can mash the berries or give them a quick blitz with a hand blender or mini food processor so they might mix into the yogurt better. Vanilla yogurt sounds like a delicious alternative! We have found some brands to be too sweet for us, and that's why we tend to use unsweetened, but you can also add some sweetness to the yogurt, but using maple syrup or agave syrup if you like! Your honesty helps refine our recipes, and we appreciate your support 💛

Bonnie - Feb. 7, 2024, 4:03 p.m.

Hi there. This looks like a perfect breakfast on the go for me. I'm wondering about using unsweetened coconut yogurt to which I want to mix in 1.5 servings (55g) of Kos organic vanilla superfood plant protein. I cannot use dairy yogurt but want to increase the protein. Not sure if this addition will alter the recipe too significantly and wanted to know your thoughts. Thank you!!

PUL Team - Feb. 7, 2024, 11 p.m.

Hey there, Bonnie, thanks for the question! Adding protein powder will impact the taste and potential texture depending on the protein type you have, but you could certainly add it if you'd like. For two alternative ideas, you could opt for a Greek-based plant yogurt, or top the yogurt with some nuts and seeds or a swirl of nut or seed butter for a touch more protein. You could also substitute some of the rolled oats in the base for almond flour 🤗

G. - Jan. 28, 2024, 6:13 p.m.

Are they going to survive when I decide to take them to go and they will be eaten after and hour/two since taken out from the freezer?

PUL Team - Jan. 30, 2024, 5:43 a.m.

Hey there, G, we'd recommend eating the bars within around 15 minutes otherwise the yogurt can get overly soft. If it's cold where you are they may last a bit longer though! You could also leave them in a cool pack to help them stay firm for longer 🤗

Kayla - Jan. 16, 2024, 6:58 a.m.

I've made these twice now - second time I cut down the base amount a bit (found there wasn't enough yogurt for my taste first time) and added some mango puree and it was extra delicious.

Stephanie Klein - Jan. 13, 2024, 4:14 p.m.

How do you recommend storing them? Keep them in the freezer?

PUL Team - Jan. 14, 2024, 4:55 a.m.

Hey Stephanie, we indeed recommend storing the bars in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 weeks, with parchment paper between cut slices of the bars to prevent them from sticking to each other. In case you haven't seen yet and it helps in the future, the storage instructions on the app are in the directions tab and the last slide of the "Make" step-by-step instructions 🤗

Poiven Capp - Jan. 8, 2024, 4:09 a.m.

love these! I missed the instruction to let them thaw for a few minutes and the first couple I ate straight out of the freezer. I definitely recommend letting them thaw for a sec!

Elaine Rose - Jan. 7, 2024, 3:39 p.m.

The first Pickuplimes recipe i tried years back. Still a favourite 💛

PUL Team - Jan. 9, 2024, 2:20 a.m.

Aw so happy to hear, Elaine! Thanks for sticking with us since then 🥰

Samantha Lynch - Dec. 28, 2023, 2:39 a.m.

These have always been a firm favourite of mine. Such a tasty, nutritious breakfast that is so convenient!

Madison - Dec. 8, 2023, 3:27 a.m.

It was so pleasantly surprised by these bars! I’ve been needing to find a recipe for a sweet snack between work and I just found it! I loved the peanut butter flavor in the base plus the sweetness of the berries. I opted for blueberries and cherries as they were all I had, but the combo worked. Will definitely be making again!

PUL Team - Dec. 8, 2023, 7:22 a.m.

Mmm a tasty twist to use cherries! Thank you, Madison 🤗✨

James Kew - Dec. 5, 2023, 12:03 p.m.


Florian - Dec. 3, 2023, 8:23 p.m.

I liked em! But they’re probably even better in summer and not around Christmas time :)

PUL Team - Dec. 4, 2023, 4:26 a.m.

Hehe yes we love these breakfast bars on warm mornings when we're on the go, Florian 😊

SN - Nov. 21, 2023, 11:32 a.m.

This is another favourite PUL recipe for me. I used to make this during my university days and it saved me so much time and energy on days that I couldn’t cook in the mornings!

PUL Team - Nov. 21, 2023, 6:11 p.m.

Awe we’re so happy to hear, SN! Ready to grab breakfasts are a game changer on busy mornings 🙌

Gina - Nov. 3, 2023, 5:48 p.m.

My kids love these breakfast bars. My 6 year old likes the frozen part.

Elyse de Waard - Sept. 30, 2023, 8:14 a.m.

I like to replace the soy yoghurt with coconut yoghurt

Hiranmayi pechetti - Sept. 25, 2023, 11:01 a.m.

My favorite breakfast meal prep. I make it every single week :)!

Demi - Aug. 9, 2023, 10:46 a.m.

Any ideas how to swap out the almond butter? I'm allergic to all nuts & also peanuts. Would tahini work? Or any other suggestions?

PUL Team - Aug. 10, 2023, 5:53 p.m.

Hey Demi, sunflower seed butter may be a bit more neutral, but tahini has also received a positive review and would be a suitable alternative. Hope you enjoy the frozen yogurt breakfast bars 😃

Demi - Aug. 10, 2023, 5:56 p.m.

I tried sunflower seed butter and loved it! Will try tahini next time. Thanks a lot!

Manu M. - Aug. 7, 2023, 2:38 p.m.

Super delicious! And very fun to make :)

Archa - July 19, 2023, 12:54 a.m.

I know this is a hit already. But just need to say that this has become my favourite breakfast for summer days. I never used to like frozen berries but this one is super tasty

PUL Team - July 22, 2023, 3:04 a.m.

Yayy we're so happy to hear, Archa, thank you 😊

Rita June - July 11, 2023, 5:25 p.m.

This recipe is so good!!

Anna - July 11, 2023, 4:35 p.m.

Love love love this! On repeat at my house as soon as it gets hot. I hate waking up sweaty but having these in the freezer makes it slightly more bearable to get moving on those scorcher days when it's already 80 degrees Fahrenheit at 8 a.m. I like adding a little lemon juice to the berry mixture to "brighten" the flavor. Life changing and I am forever grateful to PUL. Thank you!

PUL Team - July 13, 2023, 2:40 a.m.

Awe we're so thrilled to hear, Anna, thank you! Lemon is a lovely twist 😃🍋

Archa - June 11, 2023, 8:38 p.m.

Hii PUL,

I really want to try this one. But I don’t like the taste of frozen berries. Is there any substitute? Like a jam, or other fruits or something? Thankssss

PUL Team - June 12, 2023, 3:23 a.m.

Hey Archa, feel free to use any fruits desired. Smaller and juicer fruits that aren't too tough or starchy would work best, such as mango, kiwi, cherries, and peaches. If it's preferred you don't need to stew the fruit, and you could also try dried fruit, nuts, or seeds if those are more accessible 🙂

Laurie - June 8, 2023, 12:05 p.m.

My favorite summer breakfast recipe!

Jennifer - May 3, 2023, 7:43 a.m.

These are a summer staple in our house. So easy and delicious. I have added vegan vanilla protein powder to coconut yogurt to bump up the protein and sometimes I use homemade soy yogurt…either way, so good!

PUL Team - May 4, 2023, 2:49 a.m.

So glad the recipe is being enjoyed, Jennifer, thanks so much 🤗

Abby - April 12, 2023, 9:33 p.m.

These were so good! Thank you so much for always sharing amazing recipes. Thank thank thank you...:)

Teri-Mae - April 3, 2023, 12:54 p.m.

Love love love these! Always have these on hand and perfect for grab and go. My husband is obsessed and constantly telling me to make more and more! My 3 year old loves the date mixture on its own 😊😊

PUL Team - April 3, 2023, 6:58 p.m.

Aw so happy to hear, Teri-Mae, thank you 😃

Lyndsey - March 10, 2023, 6:44 a.m.

Can I use flax seeds instead of ground flax seeds?

PUL Team - March 11, 2023, 3:44 p.m.

Hey Lyndsey, ground flaxseeds help the base of the bars stick together so it would be more crumbly with whole flaxseeds. You could grind whole flaxseeds at home if you have access to a food processor for best results 🙂

Melissa - March 6, 2023, 2:46 p.m.

I love these bars. I have been making them for years! And I cannot stop, haha. One habit I have gotten into though is buying all of the ingredients then putting off making the crust because it causes havoc on my Ninja blender, mainly because of the dates (I don't have a large food processor, my small one quits when I try blending the dates). Then I end up taking the ingredients out of the blender and mashing with my hands...which is not ideal if others are eating :) It sounds like recommendations are to soak the dates or buy softer ones...just wondering if any one else is having these issues? Maybe buying a food processor is the trick..

PUL Team - March 7, 2023, 2:10 p.m.

Hey Melissa, so glad the recipe is being enjoyed! A food processor is better suited for blending semi-solid ingredients, like in this recipe, compared to a blender which is usually designed for liquids. If you don't have access to a high-powered food processor, perhaps mashing the soaked dates well with a fork before adding them to the blender could do the trick. You can also add a bit of water if needed 🙂

Laurie - June 8, 2023, 12:07 p.m.

I'm always adding a little bit of water to the mixture. It works!

Jo Bolio - Feb. 24, 2023, 1:36 a.m.

I AM OBSESSED with this!!!! It's perfect, specially in summer. As a dessert i enjoy it so much! Or even a late night snack on a very hot day. Some times I add cocoa to the "cookie". I alway expect it to last longer, but me and my boyfriend cant stop eating them. Thanks for the recipe!!!

PUL Team - Feb. 25, 2023, 7:45 a.m.

We're so happy the recipe is being enjoyed, Jo - thank you 🤗

Angelique Armstrong - Feb. 21, 2023, 4:45 p.m.

Wonderful! Delicious breakfast snack idea. Another staple to add to my arsenal. Thank you PUL Team!

Evelyn - Jan. 18, 2023, 8:17 p.m.

Hello! This recipe looks really delicious, but I don't have a food processor. I have a blender but I'm worried this might overwork it. Is it possible to make the base by hand?

PUL Team - Jan. 19, 2023, 9:36 a.m.

Hey Evelyn! You can try, but my fear is that if it isn't ground up enough, the base not hold/stick together super well. If you do give it a go by hand, try getting dates that are suuuuper soft and mash them with a fork. Then mince (or momentarily blitz in the blender) the oats until it's as close to a flour as possible. Then mix the ingredients in a bowl. If it doesn't stick super well, consider adding some more PB. I hope this helps! 🤗

Ellie - Dec. 6, 2022, 12:17 a.m.

I made these for me as a healthier snack, I wasn't expecting my 5 and 3 year olds to go mad for them! Very easy and quick to make, I did it all in a mini chopper. I used normal dairy Greek yoghurt which worked fine but melts quickly when you take it out. Another great and unusual recipe.

PUL Team - Dec. 6, 2022, 6:30 a.m.

So glad it was enjoyed - especially by the little ones, Ellie!

chhavi - Nov. 3, 2022, 1:21 p.m.

Hi Sadia.. Can I take normal yogurt instead of soy one ? Will th etaste be same ?

PUL Team - Nov. 3, 2022, 6:40 p.m.

Hey there, Chhavi! Since we only use plant-based products here at PUL, we've only tested it out with unsweetened plant-based yogurts. We hope you enjoy the bars if you're able to give them a try☺️

Perdita - Oct. 15, 2022, 4:41 a.m.

Hi Sadia! These breakfast bars are the best, so easy to make, and travel well (in a pre-frozen Packit for breakfast on the road 😁). I’d like to add a little more protein without adding more fat. Would you recommend a clean vegan protein powder? How much?

Thanks for ALL your amazing recipes! I just love watching your videos and am constantly inspired to try more of your recipes. Yum!

PUL Team - Oct. 16, 2022, 7:21 p.m.

Hey Perdita, we're so glad the bars are being enjoyed! Using soy-based Greek yogurt is one idea to add more protein. Larger grocery stores often lower fat options 🙂

We haven't tried adding protein powder to the base of the bars, but imagine you could if desired. The taste may be impacted depending on the flavour of the powder. We don't recommend one type in particular, but we do suggest looking for a trusted source or getting personalized advice from a healthcare professional. In Canada, for example, once Health Canada (a department of the government of Canada) has assessed a product and decided it is safe, effective and of high quality, it issues a product license along with an eight-digit Natural Product Number (NPN), which must appear on the label. We hope this helps, for now, Perdita, and thank you for being here!

Ezra - Oct. 4, 2022, 9:46 a.m.

Hello! The recipe looks very nice and I would love to try it out. But I am not really like the taste of dates. Is there anything I can substitute them for? That would be very helpful. :-) Thank you for all the work you - I love your videos and the website! Best, Ezra

PUL Team - Oct. 6, 2022, 4:58 p.m.

Hey there, Ezra, the dates help add some sweetness and stickiness to the base of the bars so you could try an alternative dried fruit for a similar effect. You could also try less dried fruit with a touch more nut butter and perhaps syrup to taste. If it helps, we find the base doesn't have an overly strong taste of dates due to the oats and nut butter in the mix 🙂

Deja - Aug. 22, 2022, 6:26 a.m.

I ate these every morning for months. This dish had become my safe food very fast. Easy to make and prep! They’re so good, I highly recommend this to everyone.

PUL Team - Aug. 23, 2022, 8:06 p.m.

It means so much the bars are being enjoyed! Thank you, Deja 🙂

Julien KERGREIS - July 31, 2022, 7:57 p.m.

Hey, I wanted to say thank you all for providing us with this recipe. I like to use it as a way to flex when cooking desert for others. 😎

Anyway, I just wanted to share some of the modifications I used for the recipe :

- Nut butter's expensive ? Just use regular butter ! (lord forgive me)
- Sesame oil works well in small quantity in the base
- Don't hesitate to switch any dry ingredients (a portion of oats for a portion of nuts, dates for chestnuts, etc...)
- Add your extra touch to the yogurt : vanilla, coconut, sliced fruits, etc...

Regards to the PUL team.

PUL Team - July 31, 2022, 9:49 p.m.

Hey there, Julien, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the breakfast bars! Sending our warmest regards back ☺️

Heather Swan - July 24, 2022, 5:07 p.m.

This is one of my favourite yogurt bars to make in the summer. It’s just so pretty.
On my latest batch, I used vanilla coconut yogurt topped with wild blueberries - it’s like dessert for breakfast. Yum!!

PUL Team - July 24, 2022, 8:35 p.m.

We're so happy to hear, Heather, and that sounds delicious!

Chess - July 11, 2022, 7:40 p.m.

Absolutely love these! I made those and the energy balls because I bought some dates and didn't really know what to do with them "^^ They're really similar, but the cinnamon combined with the yoghurt was just mind blowing. Reminded me of that scene in Ratatouille--

PUL Team - July 13, 2022, 5:24 a.m.

Mmm love the idea to make energy balls, Chess, thank you! So glad they were enjoyed 😊

Tine - June 16, 2022, 9:20 a.m.

These bars are just incredibly delicious. I made them for a quick breakfast in summer, but I think they are the perfect sweet treat too.
They are really easy to make and I think I'm going to store a whole batch of them in the freezer from now on, so I have always some on hand throughout the summer months.

PUL Team - June 17, 2022, 7:37 a.m.

Woohoo! It means so much the bars are being enjoyed, Tine, thank you 🙂

Jennifer Marana - June 14, 2022, 3:48 p.m.

I have made these several times now and they are so delicious and easy! I love the date base as a natural sugar and bonding agent. These provide a quick and easy breakfast for me, especially of I need something on the go!

PUL Team - June 16, 2022, 6:11 a.m.

Hey Jennifer, thanks for taking the time to share your experience with it. We're so happy to hear!

Tine - June 10, 2022, 1:39 p.m.

Me and my family really love this recipe. So tasty! I think the food processor should be strong for this. Ours is rather weak so the part below is always a bit more on the rough side - but nevertheless super tasty.

PUL Team - June 13, 2022, 5:37 a.m.

We do recommend a powerful food processor if possible! So glad the bars were still enjoyed, Tine 🤗

Erica - June 9, 2022, 7:20 p.m.

These are almost always in my freezer :) Thanks for providing basically all the staple recipes in my life hahaha

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 11:54 p.m.

So happy the bars are being enjoyed, Erica 😃

Sheeza - June 5, 2022, 9:49 a.m.

Hi. Can I add instant oats instead of rolled oats in the recipe? Would it still work?

PUL Team - June 6, 2022, 8:29 p.m.

Hey Sheeza, yes you can! Instant oats are slightly thinner and cut smaller than rolled oats but will still work in this one 🙂

Andreea - May 19, 2022, 8:39 a.m.

I made this last night and I was a bit concerned because I used dried apricots instead of dates, but they turned out really tasty and pretty. Great way to start the day! Thank you!

PUL Team - May 20, 2022, 1:12 a.m.

A lovely substitution, Andreea, we're so glad the bars were enjoyed as well 😃

S - May 3, 2022, 12:15 p.m.

Is there any other fruit substitute to Berries? Would mango work with this?

PUL Team - May 4, 2022, 7:24 a.m.

Hey S! Feel free to use any fruits desired. Smaller and juicer fruits that aren't too tough or starchy would work best, such as mango, kiwi, cherries, and peaches. If it's preferred you don't need to stew the fruit, and you could also try dried fruit, nuts, or seeds if those are more accessible 🙂

Laurie - June 8, 2023, 12:09 p.m.

Mango is my favorite with this recipe, it makes the bars even sweeter!

Michelle, USA - April 27, 2022, 6:20 p.m.

These are tasty! My granola crust was pretty crumbly so I'll probably put it in a bowl next time!

PUL Team - April 27, 2022, 6:49 p.m.

A bowl is a lovely idea, Michelle! Using more dates or nut butter if yours aren't too sticky and being sure to freeze the bars well also helps the bars stay firm 🙂

Pooja - April 25, 2022, 8:25 p.m.

This was really good. My yogurt bars didn't look as good as the pictures but tasted great. The mix of flavors from the base, the yogurt and the berries was just perfect.

PUL Team - April 26, 2022, 4:34 p.m.

We're so glad the bars were still enjoyed, Pooja, thank you!

Victoria - April 15, 2022, 4:33 p.m.

Can this be made without the flaxseed? Will it still hold well without it?

PUL Team - April 15, 2022, 6:48 p.m.

Hey Victoria, the flaxseeds help mould the bars together but you can switch or omit them if desired! If opting to omit them, see how sticky the mixture is and perhaps add more nut butter or dates if it's too crumbly. You could also replace the flax seeds with an alternative seed or pulverized nut, such as chia or hemp. We hope you enjoy the bars ☺️

Georgina - March 12, 2022, 11:25 a.m.

These are so delicious and refreshing!! Absolutely yum. Super satisfying too and really nice to have another breakfast that can be bulk made for the week (although it does take self control to not eat it all straight away)😂. Thank you for this yummy healthy recipe!

PUL Team - March 12, 2022, 7:26 p.m.

Hey Georgina, it means so much that the bars are being enjoyed! Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with them 😃

Kayla - Feb. 25, 2022, 4:02 p.m.

Ooh I wanna try this. How many calories is it?

PUL Team - Feb. 25, 2022, 4:13 p.m.

Hi there, Kayla 🙂 You can find the approximate nutrition information by clicking on the green "show nutrition info" button below the recipe. Kindly note that as the disclaimer mentions, this is just an estimate and if you need specific nutrition information due to a medical condition, please consult with a healthcare professional, such as a dietitian or physician. We hope this helps for now and you enjoy the bars if you're able to give them a try!

Rachael - Feb. 20, 2022, 9:44 p.m.

I love this recipe! I used plain Greek yogurt and peanut butter instead, and they still turned out great. Thank you for the delicious healthy recipe!

PUL Team - Feb. 20, 2022, 11:16 p.m.

Thank you, Rachael 😊

Cierra - Feb. 20, 2022, 3:28 a.m.

I am going to make this for meal prep but I am thinking about making half the recipe so how big of a pan would I need?

Cierra - Feb. 20, 2022, 3:37 a.m.

I meant baking dish*

PUL Team - Feb. 20, 2022, 5:21 p.m.

Hey Cierra, a smaller baking dish such as a 6 by 6 inch square baking dish or 9 inch round pan would work. The mixture for this one is on the stickier side so you could alternatively spread the base to desired thickness on any baking dish you have, such as approximately half of a 11 by 7 inch baking dish. The bars may just be thinner or thicker based on your preferences 😊

Tazmeen - Feb. 17, 2022, 1:56 p.m.

I love the recipe

Ara - Feb. 13, 2022, 8:22 a.m.

Delicious 😛🤤🤤

Melanie - Feb. 3, 2022, 3:47 p.m.

These are great! I've been making these off and on for years now, and they are delicious and indulgent. It feels like a dessert, and sometimes I eat it as one!

PUL Team - Feb. 4, 2022, 3:08 a.m.

It means so much they're being enjoyed, Melanie!

Jess - Jan. 22, 2022, 8:51 p.m.

These bars are easy to make and absolutely delicious. They are filling so work well as an on-the-go breakfast meal. I simply take one out of the freezer before my 5 min commute to work and eat them at my desk when I get there. Thank you for another nutritious and exciting breakfast idea!

PUL Team - Jan. 23, 2022, 8:18 p.m.

It means so much that they're being enjoyed, Jess, thank you!

Christine - Dec. 22, 2021, 8:44 p.m.

These are incredibly easy to make and taste amazing! They are the perfect snack if you need a little something between meals (or to get you through cooking dinner - sometimes I need a snack haha!)

PUL Team - Dec. 23, 2021, 1:43 a.m.

So happy they're being enjoyed, Christine, thank you for taking the time to share ☺️

Mirthe - Dec. 20, 2021, 8:45 p.m.

Soooo excited, we finally have a freezer that is big enough to make this! YAY!
Only problem is that my husband is not a big fan of dates. Is there a way we can swap this out?

PUL Team - Dec. 21, 2021, 5:44 a.m.

Hi Mirthe, thanks for the question! The dates add natural sweetness while also helping with stickiness to ensure the bars stick together. We'd recommend experimenting with another dried fruit if possible, such as raisins.

If not, some syrup and nut butter in place of the dried fruit may work. We haven't tested it out though so it's hard to say with certainty the bars will bind together. We hope you enjoy it if you're able to give the bars a try 😃

Vrinda - Dec. 18, 2021, 9:09 p.m.

The recipe is not only healthy but is absolutely delicious. I first thought delicious snacks can’t be healthy but after finding this channel I learnt that I was wrong all along thanks to pick up limes!

PUL Team - Dec. 21, 2021, 3:03 a.m.

Oh, Vrinda, we're so happy to hear - thank YOU 🙂

Julia - Nov. 28, 2021, 10:06 p.m.

Easy to make and to make ahead and delicious. Thank you very much for this.

Sonja - Nov. 27, 2021, 10:23 a.m.

I have made these several times so far and always loved them. I usually had a small piece for dessert, and they have earned a place in my personal handwritten book of recipes. But I had a problem with the temperature / size. If I let them thaw only three or four minutes before eating, they are still kind of hard and I have to bite off pieces, which hurts my teeth. If I wait longer, they start to crumble and I have to eat them with a spoon (still delicious, though). Yesterday I tried something new and directly made little bite-sized pieces by using a silicone confectionery mold. It's a bit more laborious, but worked perfectly. Now I can eat three or for tiny little pieces for dessert without any teeth problems, and they look pretty, too.

PUL Team - Nov. 27, 2021, 10 p.m.

Hi Sonja, thank you so much for sharing your take on this one! What a lovely idea to make bite-sized bars 😍

Samruddhi - Nov. 13, 2021, 3:24 p.m.

I am 18 and I turned vegan few months back, so I was looking for quick recipes and I loved this one. Also I'm loving the website. It's so well structured. And thank you Sadia for your recipes, they are always good and nourishing.

PUL Team - Nov. 13, 2021, 4:15 p.m.

Aw thank YOU, Samruddhi, for the kind words and being here! All the best on your vegan journey ✨

Linda - Oct. 16, 2021, 4:54 p.m.

These are so easy to make and great to have ready made for mornings when you're a bit short on time. Lovely with a cup of tea. Have enjoyed as an afternoon snack as well as a breakfast. Another hit with the kids too who enjoyed helping to make this one.

PUL Team - Oct. 17, 2021, 2:32 a.m.

So nice the little ones could get involved! Thank you for sharing your experience with this one, Linda ✨

Lisa - Sept. 25, 2021, 6:54 a.m.

The frozen breakfast bars and granola are now a staple for us. The breakfast bars are perfect for teenagers to grab and go:)

PUL Team - Sept. 26, 2021, 1:48 a.m.

So happy the bars are being enjoyed, Lisa!

Shabnam - Sept. 24, 2021, 3:44 p.m.

I'm new here and I just wanted to say that your cookie policy is pretty fair, so thank you for living out the authentic values you promote. Daste dart nakoneh!

Regarding the recipe: It's really good!! I do eat dairy, my partner doesn't. We bake this with half the pan with dairy yoghurt and the other half with plant yoghurt and both sides are delicious! We've tried it with some honey and then it's through the roof. Thanks for sharing!

Kathleen - Sept. 15, 2021, 2:34 p.m.

These yogurt bars are my new favorite breakfast. I just made my second batch in one week lol. They are just so tasty and yummy. Such a wonderful sweetness that I feel good about eating.

PUL Team - Sept. 15, 2021, 5:10 p.m.

Aw we appreciate this so much, Kathleen, enjoy the breakfast bars 😃

Clare - Sept. 3, 2021, 9:04 a.m.

Wow! I can definitely see why this is one of PULs most popular recipes! These are amazing!

Amanda - Aug. 18, 2021, 6:33 p.m.

Super happy with how these turned out!! I didn't have dates at home, so I used a combination of dried apricots and raisins instead and it worked really well :) The sweetness from the dried fruit together with the salty flavour from the peanutbutter made these bars really tasty, and altogether it was a great combination!
Will definitely make these again, looking forward to more lovely recipes!😊

PUL Team - Aug. 19, 2021, 8:26 p.m.

Aw we're so glad you enjoyed the bars, Amanda! Happy cooking 🤗

Theresa - Aug. 17, 2021, 8:13 a.m.

I really wish I could give these 10 stars. 5 just isn’t enough! These were such a hit with absolutely everyone in the family and my entire stock in the freezer disappeared in 2 days. Teamed up with a bowl of fresh fruit, these are our new must-have morning meal.

PUL Team - Aug. 18, 2021, 6:30 a.m.

Love this one with fruit! So happy you're enjoying the recipe, Theresa :)

Nimisha - Aug. 11, 2021, 11:26 p.m.

Hey Sadia, I am so eager to try this recipe but I am unable to find Medjool dates, Can I use any other variety of dates or date paste/syrup. If yes what amount of syrup/paste should I use and what variety of dates can I Swap this for.

PUL Team - Aug. 12, 2021, 2:08 a.m.

Hey there, Nimisha! Feel free to use whatever dates are the most accessible to you 😊 We prefer Medjool dates as they're generally a bit bigger and chewier than the more firm and smaller dates available to us. You may find it helpful to add a few more dates to the mixture if it's not as sticky as desired or some syrup if needed.

We haven't tested out the recipe with date pate or syrup in place of the dates so we can't say with certainty. Perhaps starting with a 1/2 cup and increasing based on the texture and stickiness is one idea. We hope you enjoy the bars if you give them a try 🌻

Liz Congo - Aug. 11, 2021, 6:34 p.m.

We make this one ALL. THE. TIME. It's such an easy go-to for snacks or breakfast on the go. The yogurt does take a little while to thaw, but it's worth the wait. It's easy to mix it up with different fruit as well.

Autumn - Aug. 11, 2021, 12:27 a.m.

These are so good!!!! I used half peanut butter and half almond butter in the base and it was so yummy. I used a cashew/coconut milk yogurt and freezing turned the yogurt very icy and had to eat even after thawing a bit, I will probably experiment with different yogurt brands in the future! Nevertheless this is phenomenal, super easy and yummy recipe to make, would high recommend :-)

PUL Team - Aug. 11, 2021, 3 a.m.

Thanks for sharing your experience with this one, Autumn! Using a higher fat yogurt may help with top be creamier with less ice. We usually use the Albert Heijn brand ( if it helps 😀

Saine - Aug. 8, 2021, 1:57 a.m.

Have made these bars multiple times and can't fault them! So good :)!!

Leah - July 25, 2021, 4:22 p.m.

Is it recommended to make these with an unsweetened yoghurt or sweetened? Or maybe add some maple syrup to the yoghurt before using? I know it might be a preference thing but I’m curious what the original recipe uses? Thanks!

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 2:10 a.m.

Hey there, Leah, thanks for the question! We opt for unsweetened, but you could naturally sweeten your yogurt or used a sweetened one if desired 🙂

Leah - July 27, 2021, 8:32 p.m.

Thank you! I realized after I asked the question that the instructions say unsweetened. I mixed in some maple syrup to the unsweetened yoghurt and it was delicious!

Armine - July 25, 2021, 1:12 p.m.

I tried it, I didn't have a food processor, so I used a pretty old hand blender and it worked. I could feel the peanut butter kinda a lot, but I think it was because of the blender, but with the top part it tasted pretty nice, the two are nice combination. I like it's like ice cream and nice for summer and of course healthy. : )

Jenni H. - July 25, 2021, 4:30 a.m.

These are so good and is the most indulgent way to start a morning. Perfect for a grab and go breakfast during the summer months, too. (And if you need to cheat and use jam to swirl in there, that's okay too.)

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 11:06 p.m.

Mmm love the idea to use jam, Jenni, thanks for the tip!

Melisa - July 24, 2021, 8:03 p.m.

Loved this recipe so much that I have made it several times. It's the best breakfast on any summer day 😊

Carrie - July 24, 2021, 6:33 p.m.

I've been obsessed with these breakfast bars over the last 2 summers - soo good! Super quick and easy to make, and they taste amazing 😍

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 12:15 a.m.

So happy to hear, Carrie, thank you for the review!

Amaara - July 24, 2021, 6:32 p.m.

Absolutely delicious

Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - July 24, 2021, 5:01 p.m.

Very delicious and fresh during these warm summer days. I really recommend having this bar and a tiny fruit salad (e.g. mango, cantaloupe melon, and strawberries) for breakfast: I was so satisfied afterwards😊
I think it’s great that the bars hold together so well despite that bottom isn’t baked. And how you can vary the topping!! I agree that the yoghurt becomes too icy, but I believe it’s a matter of preparation before eating. I’ll try to remove the bar earlier from the freezer next time. And I’ll use a spoon or fork in the future: the bottom is solid but becomes fudge-like when it has completely thawed (don’t want to have sticky fingers 🤣)

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 9:53 p.m.

We're so glad the breakfast bars have been enjoyed, Louise! Eating them shortly after removing them from the freezer may also help 😊

R.V. - July 23, 2021, 5:15 a.m.

These are absolutely delicious! I used the superseed nut butter in this recipe for even more nutrition 😊. I also blended a mango instead of using stewed berries (cause it's mango season right now :D), and then I put some blueberries on top. I also added some unsweetened cocoa powder along with the cinnamon, and it turned out great! This is an amazing treat to have, especially during the hot and humid summer months!

Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - July 24, 2021, 10:52 a.m.

Wow I love your combination! Chocolate and mango go so well together. Maybe chocolate and peaches or apricots could work as well🤔

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 6:51 a.m.

Oooo we love these ideas too, R.V! Thanks so much for taking the time to share 😃

Rayna - July 23, 2021, 1:14 a.m.

Through this pandemic time, i had lots of time to try lots of these recipes! These were perfect because i could leave them in freezer and pull one or 2 out when I was ready to eat! Toddler approved as well!!

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 2:29 a.m.

We're so happy to hear you and your little one are enjoying them, Rayna!

Claire - July 20, 2021, 1:42 a.m.

These are absolutely delicious, decadent (they remind me of cheesecake!) and so refreshing to eat during the hot weather we are currently experiencing. I have a nut allergy, so substituted tahini for nut butter, and I stewed some home grown red gooseberries for the topping.

PUL Team - July 20, 2021, 3:40 p.m.

Mmm tahini and homegrown berries are great subs! So happy you're enjoying the bars, Claire 🥳

Dee - July 16, 2021, 11:33 a.m.

I replaced the flax seeds with chia seeds which was good. I really like the oatmeal-date base for this, the texture's great the dates really do make it wonderful. :) I'm diabetic so was looking for a sugar free option, I should've checked my blood sugar after eating it but I'm just going to assume the fiber made up for any sugar spike :D

I'm not vegan so I used normal greek yoghurt mixed with soy milk which came out a bit icy but I'm definitely going to try it again next time and use pure greek yoghurt to see if it helps with the texture/reduce iciness.

PUL Team - July 18, 2021, 2:22 a.m.

So glad you enjoyed this one, Dee! Do let us know how it goes with the Greek styled yogurt :)

Dee - July 19, 2021, 5:46 a.m.


My friend just harvested some mangos (we're frm Indonesia so shout out to Robin! 👋🏾) so i ended up pureeing the greek yoghurt with mango and some coconut cream 🤣

I think the coconut cream to our added extra richness to the mango yoghurt which was nice.

I topped it with sliced frozen mangos. Yum yum.. wld recommend

PUL Team - July 20, 2021, 5:27 a.m.

Ooo that's super interesting, Dee, thanks a bunch for following up! Super helpful to know 😃

May - July 15, 2021, 7:54 p.m.

I love baking and cooking with my mom and we made these breakfast bars and they were really good! We didn't have coconut yogurt so we just used regular yogurt and it turned out just as well!😊💗We also replaced flaxseeds with hemp seeds.

PUL Team - July 18, 2021, 2:08 a.m.

So glad you were able to make this one with your mom, May!

Carin - July 14, 2021, 3:03 p.m.

Smashed the dates with a fork, but absolutely worth it 🥰

Miriam - July 13, 2021, 6:49 p.m.

I've used this recipe for at least 8 times already and am definitely going to continue to use it. I just absolutely love the taste and how easy it is in the mornings. I love eating healthy and nutritious with recipes like these because I actually enjoy eating them!!

PUL Team - July 18, 2021, 12:52 a.m.

Super happy you're enjoying this one, Miriam, thank you for sharing 😃

Maria - July 13, 2021, 1:13 p.m.

I'm a college student and these are a life saver for a breakfast on the walk to class! I think these are so tasty! I used a larger pan, so I actually ended up doubling the base to make sure it was fully covered! Easy and filling and so fresh :) For the yogurt, I used the So Delicious vegan yogurt, which is my favorite, if anyone wants a recommendation for a good vegan yogurt

PUL Team - July 18, 2021, 12:22 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Maria, you're incredible! All the best with your studies ✨🤓

Nahieli - July 12, 2021, 10:47 a.m.

I just made this recipe a couple of days ago, and I absolutely loved it. These bars are delicious and refreshing. I do not eat them as a breakfast, but they are just great for a refreshing and nourishing snack in summer.

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 6:14 a.m.

Mmm a delicious snack! So glad you're enjoying the recipe, Nahieli 🌻

Tiril - July 11, 2021, 2:15 p.m.

I think I just picked the wrong vegan yoghurt, because the taste was off. So pick wisely my friends! Also if they stay in the freezer for too many days they tasted icey and watery when I defrosted them, but love them the first couple of days:)

PUL Team - July 12, 2021, 7:24 a.m.

Hey there, Tiril, thanks for the honest review! It can definitely be tricky to find a good plant-based yogurt. We usually use the Albert Heijn brand ( Not sure where in the world home is for you, but if you get a chance to give it a try, we think it's great 😀

Tiril - July 22, 2021, 6:37 p.m.

Currently Norway, but I’m actually moving to the Netherlands next month and will definitely give Albert Heinz a go! Are there any other Dutch, plant-based brands you would recommend?

PUL Team - July 24, 2021, 2:04 a.m.

Hey Tiril, sure thing: Alpro is a great one, and they have a large variety of different types and flavours of plant0based yogurts. Albert Heijn also has a few great house-branded yogurts - the coconut yogurt being my favourite. I hope this helps for now and wishing you a safe and happy move! 🇳🇱

Lorraine - July 10, 2021, 1:14 p.m.

J'en ai toujours au congélateur, tellement facile pour les matins pressés !

Katherine Broberg - July 9, 2021, 7:30 p.m.

These were berry tasty 😋 but they had a hard time staying together.

PUL Team - July 15, 2021, 2:51 a.m.

Thank you for the honest feedback, Katherine! We'd recommend ensuring the base is firmly packed down (such as being pressed down into a pan with the back of a spoon) to help it stick together better 😊

Viktoriia - July 9, 2021, 11:54 a.m.

These are absolutely delicious! I have a tiny freezer which is painful and I can't do them often, but it is such a treat especially for the hot season! And it is so straightforward and easy to make which is always a plus! These bars only have one minus, it is very hard to stop eating them :D

PUL Team - July 14, 2021, 3:49 p.m.

So glad you're enjoying the breakfast bars, Viktoriia! Thank you for sharing your review 🤗

Nadia S - July 9, 2021, 3:31 a.m.

These tasted as gorgeous as they looked! Perfect for timeoat during the summer😊

Waffles - July 9, 2021, 1:02 a.m.

I’m pretty sure you have mentioned this before but I would like to make sure before I start, a food processor is not necessary correct? I only have an old fashioned blender.
I want to make this recipe and couple others I have seen your channel.

PUL Team - July 12, 2021, 7:20 a.m.

Thanks for the question, Waffles! It's indeed possible, although we'd suggest buying dates that are super soft so they can be mashed together well with a fork or more easily with a high-powered blender. You could then mix the oats, nut butter, flaxseeds, and cinnamon until combined. If you do try it out of your blender, we'd also suggest opting to manually mix if any unusual noises or smells occur to ensure your blender doesn't break 🤗

Lana R - July 8, 2021, 7:49 p.m.

I stepped out of my comfort zone with this one during the summer last year. I didn’t go crazy for it, but that’s only because I’m not much of a yogurt fan, and I don’t like things too tart. LOL 😅 No idea why I chose the tartiest-yogurtest thing on this site, but I did because it looked so good in the YouTube video! I’m giving it 5 stars, because if this is up your alley, you’re going to fall in love.

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 9:25 p.m.

Thanks for the review, Lana - Indeed we recommend this one for those who enjoy yogurt 😃

Mackenzie B. - July 8, 2021, 7:48 p.m.

I made a whole pan of this and brought it to work to snack throughout the week, and truthfully I had to keep my team members hand's out of it! It is such a delicious and addicting snack. 😂

Taylor - July 8, 2021, 7:45 p.m.

Absolutely loved making these, it was my first vegan recipe I’ve ever tried, and I highly recommend! Also, as a strongman you can add a lot of protein to this without changing the taste pretty easily.

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 8:17 p.m.

Ooo we're so grateful a PUL recipe was one of your first plant-based recipes! Thank you for sharing, Taylor 🤗

Mady - July 8, 2021, 6:33 p.m.

This is the recipe I look forward to making every spring and summer, when the weather gets warmer. They are so tasty, sustain me until lunch, and are easy on the eyes :)

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 3:26 p.m.

Thanks for taking the time to share the wonderful review, Mady 😊

Carolina Díaz - July 8, 2021, 6:23 p.m.

I made them once and have not stopped making them since!! Abolsutely delicious

Bay - July 8, 2021, 6:02 p.m.

I tried this recipe for the first time, and it was so amazing. I usually am a savory breakfast person, but I wanted to go out of my comfort zone a little bit, and fruit and yogurt is another favorite of mine. These are perfect, and they hold up quite nicely with the nut butter and dates. I certainly enjoyed them, and would definitely make again! (Also I did not have a food processor to mix up the granola base, but I just used a wooden spoon, chopped the dates really fine with a knife, and a bit of love with my hands and it worked out just fine.)

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 3 p.m.

What a labour of love, Bay! We're so thrilled you tried the bars and they were enjoyed 😃

Jess - July 8, 2021, 5:34 p.m.

I made a batch of these and LOVED them, it gave me something tasty and healthy to grab for breakfast and I never got tired of them! I would love to make another batch however I find that dates and most other dried fruits are pretty hard on my stomach. They are pretty integral to this recipie but does anyone have any substitution thoughts?

PUL Team - July 9, 2021, 8:23 p.m.

Hey there, Jess! Thank you for the lovely review 🤩 Substituting dried fruit may indeed be a bit tricky, perhaps experimenting with some syrup and nut butter may be an idea! Let us know how it goes if you give it a try or find something that works well 🙂

Maria - June 28, 2021, 10:37 p.m.

Is it possible to make these without a food processor?

PUL Team - June 29, 2021, 2:53 a.m.

Hi Maria, thank you for the question! It's indeed possible, although will take a fair bit of extra work. We'd recommend buying dates that are super soft so they can be mashed together well with a fork, and then mixing the oats, nut butter, flaxseeds, and cinnamon very well until combined. It will be a labour of love and we hope if you give it a try the recipe is enjoyed ✨

Jessica - June 24, 2021, 4:44 p.m.

These are DELICIOUS! I love them, both as a quick breakfast and as a snack. Will make again. :)

Kirtland - June 17, 2021, 3:16 a.m.

Thank you for this recipe! Absolutely perfect for a quick breakfast during this heat wave! I made a few changes that I wanted to share so that others can know how versatile this recipe is. 1. I didn’t have dates so I used raisins and dried cherries that I had. I mixed them in my food processor with a bit of water and then mixed them into the nut butter. 2. I used peanut butter instead of almond butter because it’s cheaper (and I love it). 3. I make my own tofu “soy yogurt” that I put on top of this instead of the store-bought yogurt. Blend/process one block of firm tofu with the juice of one lemon and 2 cups of frozen fruit (I used strawberries). It turns into a smooth and creamy yogurt that is higher in protein and free of added sugar. The bars turned out lovely! I froze them in a 10”x12” glass baking dish and cut them into 8 bars. Can’t wait for breakfast this week! :)

PUL Team - June 18, 2021, 2:18 a.m.

Wow, such lovely modifications to the recipe, Kirtland! You sound like an incredible cook and seem very creative in the kitchen 😃 Thank you so much for the review and for sharing your experience with the bars!

Archu - June 16, 2021, 11:18 a.m.

Hey, I want to try out this dish and I was wondering if I really need to use a baking dish. Can I just use a glass container instead?

Kirtland - June 17, 2021, 3:19 a.m.

I think that will work just fine! Just make sure not to put the glass container on heat directly after. Glass baking dishes are meant to withstand higher hot/cold fluctuations so a regular glass container may crack if it’s frozen and then heated directly after. Once you remove the bars from the frozen container just leave it to thaw out before putting it in hot water or anything like that. Alternatively a plastic or metal container would work just as well!

PUL Team - June 17, 2021, 3:40 p.m.

Thank you for the question, Archu, and for the lovely response, Kirtland! We agree that you can use glass if being careful about how fast the glass changes temperature 🙂 Some containers may have instructions not to freeze them on the bottom though which may be one thing to look out for just incase 🌻

Vanshika - June 16, 2021, 7:59 a.m.

So good 😌
I tried this recipe and now it’s one of my favourite recipe.

Hi PUL! I love these bars, perfect for summer, but I’m finding them a little bit “icy” even after letting thaw for up to 20 mins. Is there a way I can make the yoghurt top a little bit creamier and less like ice? I used Alpro coconut yoghurt - I wonder if something with a higher fat content might work better? Would love any advice - thank you as always for your amazing work!

Hi Bethan, that's a great question! Using an air-tight container and storing the bars in a less cold area of the freezer can help prevent the bars from getting too icy. Using a higher fat yogurt or Greek-styled yogurt would also give a creamier mouthfeel as well ☺️

I will try this soon! Could I substitute the almond butter for peanut butter or cashew butter?

Thanks for the question, Kathrin! You totally can 🙂 Feel free to use whichever nut or seed butter you have access to and enjoy!

I made this and had it as a dessert! It got ice-needles in it but if left to thaw a while it was good! I think it would please ice-cream lovers though!

Hi Cris! Using an air-tight container can help prevent the bars from getting ice needles in case one wasn't used. Indeed leaving the bars out for 5 minutes is a great idea to help them thaw as well. So glad you enjoyed the bars regardless 🤗

I’d love to try this recipe! What size baking dish are you using?

PUL Team - June 3, 2021, 9:52 a.m.

Hey Tikvah - great question, our baking dish was 11 x 7 inches (18 x 28 cm). Thanks for letting us know, we've now updated the directions with this information 🤓 But the baking dish size is definitely flexible, if yours is a bit larger or smaller the bars should still work out great 😊

These have been my most favorite of all the sweet snacks I have tried so far! Truly amazing. I think I have a problem now, I cannot stop eating them, literally!

What a compliment! The yogurt bars are definitely one of our favourites too 😍
