Quick Breakfast


This is a slightly different take on granola bars. It's kind of a way to combine your overnight yogurt oatmeal and granola bars into one.


Overnight Oatmeal Bars


1 container (5.3 oz) Yoplait Greek blended yogurt (any flavor)
1 cup almonds
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup dried fruit (any variety)


In food processor, place all ingredients. Cover; process until a ball forms, stopping occasionally to scrape down sides of bowl with spatula.

Line loaf pan with foil. Empty food processor bowl into loaf pan, pressing down mixture with spatula. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to firm up; slice into bars, and serve. Can also be covered and refrigerated overnight.

Yield: 8 servings. 200 calories per serving.

Source: Pillsbury website. You can find it here.

Notes: I liked these. The yogurt gives the bars a tart flavor. I used dried apricots and vanilla yogurt. A lot of people who gave these negative reviews on the Pillsbury website did it because they were expecting a crunchy granola bar. That is not what these are. They are soft and chewy. If you are looking for a crunchy or chewy traditional granola bar, find another recipe. These need to be refrigerated because of the yogurt, so they are cold when you eat them. A perfect cool breakfast for summer time!

  1. I need to try this. I'm so bored with typical weekday breakfast foods!
