Berry Frozen Yogurt Bites with Honey Granola

Try these tasty Berry Frozen Yogurt Bites with Honey Granola. Make them ahead of time, pop them into the freezer and pull them out 10 minutes before serving for a sweet, cooling afternoon snack the whole family will love.

YIELD: Makes 24 bites

INGREDIENTS

For the jam:

For the granola:

  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts of your choice
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 3 Tbsp Multiflora honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Pinch Pacific Sea Salt

DIRECTIONS

For Granola:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the oats, nuts, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the oil, honey and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Spread mixture onto a baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes, then stir. Return to the oven and bake another 7-10 minutes or until granola is golden brown.
  5. Scrape the pan as soon as it gets out of the oven, then leave on the baking sheet to cool.

For Jam:

  1. Combine the berries and the honey in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to an active simmer, and continue to cook for 8-10 minutes, or until berries are thickened and jam-like.
  2. Cool to room temperature or refrigerate overnight.

For Bites:

  1. In a bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, milk, and honey until the mixture is pourable but not runny. Gently fold in the jam so a swirl remains throughout the yogurt, or if you prefer, mix completely together.
  2. Line 2 mini muffin pans with 24 liners (foil liners work best, but paper works in a pinch). Place a couple pinches of granola in the bottom of each one. Spoon the yogurt mixture over the top, filling each one nearly to the top of the cup.
  3. Sprinkle the tops with a little more granola. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least three hours or overnight.
