Frozen Yogurt Breakfast Bars
2 hr + 10 min
10 ingredients or less
Total2 hr + 10 min
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†
Make your own
- 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.
- In a food processor, blend the dates until smooth.
- Add the oats, almond butter, ground flaxseed, and cinnamon. Blend again until well combined.
- 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.
- Top with the yogurt and spread out evenly.
- Dot the yogurt with the stewed berries and use a butter knife to swirl.
- Place into the freezer and let freeze for 1 - 2 hours, or until the bars are solid enough to cut.
- When removed from the freezer, cut into squares or bars of the desired size.
- 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.

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!
These were so good! Thank you so much for always sharing amazing recipes. Thank thank thank you...:)
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 😊😊
Can I use flax seeds instead of ground flax seeds?
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..
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!!!
Wonderful! Delicious breakfast snack idea. Another staple to add to my arsenal. Thank you PUL Team!
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?
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.
Hi Sadia.. Can I take normal yogurt instead of soy one ? Will th etaste be same ?
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!
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
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.
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.
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!!
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--
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.
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!
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.
These are almost always in my freezer :) Thanks for providing basically all the staple recipes in my life hahaha
Hi. Can I add instant oats instead of rolled oats in the recipe? Would it still work?
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!
Is there any other fruit substitute to Berries? Would mango work with this?
These are tasty! My granola crust was pretty crumbly so I'll probably put it in a bowl next time!
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.
Can this be made without the flaxseed? Will it still hold well without it?
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!
Ooh I wanna try this. How many calories is it?
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!
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?
I love the recipe
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!
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!
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!)
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?
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!
Easy to make and to make ahead and delicious. Thank you very much for this.
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.
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.
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.
The frozen breakfast bars and granola are now a staple for us. The breakfast bars are perfect for teenagers to grab and go:)
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!
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.
Wow! I can definitely see why this is one of PULs most popular recipes! These are amazing!
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!😊
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.
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.
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.
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 :-)
Have made these bars multiple times and can't fault them! So good :)!!
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!
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. : )
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.)
Loved this recipe so much that I have made it several times. It's the best breakfast on any summer day 😊
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 😍
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 🤣)
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!
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!!
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.
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.
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.
Smashed the dates with a fork, but absolutely worth it 🥰
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!!
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
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.
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:)
J'en ai toujours au congélateur, tellement facile pour les matins pressés !
These were berry tasty 😋 but they had a hard time staying together.
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
These tasted as gorgeous as they looked! Perfect for timeoat during the summer😊
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.
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.
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. 😂
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.
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 :)
I made them once and have not stopped making them since!! Abolsutely delicious
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.)
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?
Is it possible to make these without a food processor?
These are DELICIOUS! I love them, both as a quick breakfast and as a snack. Will make again. :)
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! :)
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?
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!
I will try this soon! Could I substitute the almond butter for peanut butter or cashew butter?
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!
I’d love to try this recipe! What size baking dish are you using?
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!
Amazing! Love them especially on a summer morning ❤️
Easy and delicious recipe that my whole family enjoys ☺️
