Granola Bars with Yogurt Coating

Granola yogurt bars are one of the most nostalgic snacks for me. You know, the chewy, chocolate chip ones with a thin, creamy coating on the bottom? I'm pretty sure every kid had one of those Quaker yogurt granola bars in their lunchbox at some point.

Ingredients:

– Oats -- Puffed Rice Cereal - Almonds - Coconut - Spices and Seasoning - Vanilla Extract - Peanut Butter - Honey - Greek Yogurt - Freeze-dried Strawberries - Cream Cheese - icing Sugar - Milk

Do I have to store these granola bars in the freezer?

I HIGHLY recommend storing these in the freezer. As we are not baking these granola bars, they hold their shape best if stored in the freezer. It also keeps the yogurt coating firm.

Storage

These granola yogurt bars are best stored in the freeze, as this helps hold them together and allows the yogurt coating to stay firm. I recommend storing in an airtight container and freezing for up to 3 months. You should be able to eat them directly out of the freezer.

Top Tip

Homemade granola bars can be a little tricky to hold together. For the most formed granola bars, ensure you are really pressing your granola bar base into the pan. Don't forget the corners!

Are these granola bars crumbly or chewy?

These are more of a chewy granola bar! Unlike a baked granola bar, these aren't hard, though depending on how well you pressed the bars into the pan, they may be a little crumbly once removed from the freezer!

Where can I find freeze-dried strawberries?

Trader Joe's has them! I have also found them at Real Canadian Superstoreas well as Amazon.
