Fro Yo Breakfast Bars

Fro_Yo_Breakfast_Bars

Frozen yogurt. For breakfast. And mini chocolate chips. Yes, please! I have already made these a few times this summer. They are the perfect cool summer breakfast. I usually eat in the car on the way to work, so I am always looking for healthy, portable, and easy to make at home, like my chia peanut butter power bars and now these fro yo breakfast bars! I make them pretty thick so that they will take a while to thaw. It takes me about 15 minutes to get Luke to daycare, so in about 20 minutes, I am ready for breakfast. And they are still firm, not falling apart and the perfect consistency. I travel with them in Ziploc baggies because as they melt, they can get a bit messy, but totally doable in the car on the way to work!

Recipe inspiration was from Becky at Olives ‘n’ Wine and Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean. And the yogurt was courtesy of Chobani. Smile

And they are super easy to make. And you can customize them based on your tastes or what you have in the pantry. I basically made a hybrid between Becky and Lindsay’s recipes. . . My recipe has some extra granola, because I find that helps them stick together. And chia seeds – cause I love them! And chocolate chips. . . mini ones are so darn cute and the perfect addition of sweetness to these bars. Hope you enjoy!

      I don’t think I would eat breakfast if I didn’t have time to eat in the car on the way. . . and I am always on the lookout for portable breakfast ideas – and this one is perfect!

  8. As soon as I opened this post I literally said aloud, “Say whatttt?” kinda embarrassing haha good thing my hubby knows I’m crazy. Anyway, these look great. I have a yogurt bowl pretty much everyday and I’m liking this different take on it- thanks for the idea!
