Directions

Click:

  1. In a food processor, blend the dates until smooth.
  2. Add the oats, almond butter, ground flaxseed, and cinnamon. Blend again until well combined, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  3. Transfer the mix to an 11 x 7 inch (18 x 28cm) parchment-lined baking dish and press firmly into the base of the dish.
  4. Top with the yogurt and spread out evenly.
  5. Dot the yogurt with the stewed berries and use a butter knife to swirl.
  6. Place into the freezer and let freeze for 1 - 2 hours, or until the bars are solid enough to cut.
  7. When removed from the freezer, cut into squares or bars of the desired size.
  8. Let thaw for 3 - 5 minutes before enjoying.

Storage

  • 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.

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! :)

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!

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!

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 🌻

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


Bethan - June 13, 2021, 6:57 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - June 14, 2021, 6:08 a.m.

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 ☺️


Kathrin - June 13, 2021, 8:01 a.m.

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

PUL Team - June 13, 2021, 5:42 p.m.

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


Cris S - June 5, 2021, 5:09 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - June 5, 2021, 11:30 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - April 27, 2021, 5:14 a.m.

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