Peanut Butter Oatmeal Frozen Greek Yogurt Bar

Updated on June 19, 2013
5 stars from 1 rating of Peanut Butter Oatmeal Frozen Greek Yogurt Bar

Now that it's summer time, we all want to enjoy cool and refreshing drinks and snacks to help beat the heat, but we don't necessarily want to sacrifice our health or our families health in order to do so. Most ice cream bars provided in your local grocery store are filled with sugars, high fructose corn syrup, and many other unnecessary ingredients that we should not be putting in our bodies or our children's bodies.

So, in order to keep, me and my family cool this summer I have created this fun, refreshing, and delicious Frozen Greek Yogurt Bar. With no added sugars and all natural ingredients you and your family can treat yourself without sacrificing your health, or your waistline. Even your children will ask for more!

      You actually don't even need to heat the oats and water, it just helps puff the oats up a little bit. If you just let the water soak into the oats it works just as well.

      I have also done it with dry oats, but adding water to them seemed to make the bar more creamy and added little icicles for a small crunch.

      Hmm...do you think I could combine the oats with boiling water and still have the recipe work? I actually do not own a microwave.

      You are very welcome! Just a warning, if you do not have Popsicle containers, it may take a little finesse in getting out of the dish you freeze it in (if you use a plastic ziploc-like container it is a little easier than if you use a glass container). Hope you enjoy!
