Frozen Yogurt Trail Mix Bars

Frozen yogurt trail mix bars. Are you drooling? You should be. Tasty and nutritious. Amazeness.

You can see the recipe HERE. Here's how I made mine.

Berry Granola Frozen Yogurt Bars (makes 10 bars)

2 C. plain 0% Greek yogurt (I used Aldi's brand)
one 5.3 oz. container raspberry Greek yogurt (I used Aldi's brand)
3/4 C. sliced strawberries
1/2 C. blueberries
1/4 C. blackberries (cut in half if they're large)
3/4 C. homemade quinoa granola*

Mix everything together. Pour into parchment-lined 11x7-inch biscuit-brownie pan and freeze until solid. (I left mine overnight, about 10 hours.) Remove from freezer and score (make shallow cuts in the surface) for cutting bars of equal size - 10 pieces, approximately 2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. Let the bars thaw until soft enough to cut (original recipe said 5 minutes; mine took about 40 minutes) and cut along score markings. Wrap each bar in wax paper. Place all the wrapped bars in a Ziploc baggie and store in freezer until ready to eat.

Simply perfect with breakfast or for a snack. And the flavor combinations are endless.

I'm thinking....
peaches and plums
cherries and apricots
pomegranate arils, tropical fruit (pineapple, mango, papaya), toasted coconut
oranges and cranberries

*Homemade Quinoa Granola (makes about 3 cups)
1 C. old-fashioned oats
1/2 C. steelcut oats
1/2 C. quinoa
1/2 C. chopped almonds
1/2 C. chopped walnuts
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1/4 C. maple syrup

Stir together and spread on baking sheet. Bake 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring after 30 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 325 and bake another 30 minutes. Cool completely. (I wanted a super crunchy not-too-sweet granola for these bars and this was perfect.)
