Don’t we like a healthy and irresistible snack for the little ones? This is my kids’ favorite, and yes, in wintertime, too! These Frozen Yogurt Bars with Raspberry and Oatmeal always save the day if they fuzz too much for breakfast! If they are hungry in the afternoon, these come to the rescue! Or simply as an exchange for an empty plate, these make the kids finish their plates in seconds! It is a healthy bite for the whole family with a lot of flavor and very little sugar.

The Oatmeal Layer

Frozen Yogurt, Raspberry and Oatmeal Bars

For this recipe, you can use any cut of oatmeal, whether steel cut, rolled, or instant. The steel cut might result in more of a crunch but will soak some moisture from the yogurt, making it softer. Instant might be gentler under the teeth, especially for the little ones. I’ve used coconut oil to bind the oatmeal and almond, but it could be switched or mixed with good-old butter.

The critical part here is to press down the mixture into a well-greased recipient or parchment paper. Use a flat bottom glass to compress the mixture as much as possible. This will prevent the bottom layer from falling apart.

The Yogurt Layer

The middle layer of the frozen bars is the yogurt, which is a plain Greek yogurt; I prefer the Greek variety over regular yogurt because its texture is fluffier and thicker. Nutrition-wise, it’s similar, but here is a detailed article about it if it interests you. I like to control the amount of sugar in yogurts for the kids; I think it needs a tad of sourness coming through, and good quality sugar, in my opinion, is always preferred! So, I’ve added a small amount of maple syrup; being a Canadian, this has always been my sucrose choice! However, you could use honey or agave syrup, too.

Also, I added an optional squeeze of lemon in the yogurt because I love this combo, especially with the raspberries, but this is up to you.

The Raspberry Layer

This is the highlight of this whole dish! A powerful raspberry powder made of deep-freeze raspberries simply turned into a powder with the help of a mortar or food processor. Deep-freezing keeps the color and vitamins intact; this is what we want here! A bright red bite! You can easily find them online or often in the baby section in supermarkets. I recommend raspberry for this bar, but it could also be any deep-frozen fruit or a mix of them.

Resting Time

Like frozen yogurt, you do not want the Frozen Yogurt Bars with Raspberry and Oatmeal to be hard like a rock when you bite into it! So take them out for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. They can be eaten with the hands or with cutlery.

Storage

Frozen Yogurt, Raspberry and Oatmeal Bars

To freeze Frozen Yogurt Bars with Raspberry and Oatmeal, you can use any deep container that survives in the cold, but once cold and firm, cut the bars with a sharp knife, and you can then transfer them to a Tupperware if you’d like. Add parchment paper if you stack them up. It’s important to keep the container close to prevent freeze-burn.
