The Best Blueberry Granola Bars with Greek Yogurt Drizzle

I have been trying to come up with a granola bar for months now. After many trials, and taste testing countless granola bars, I’m proud to say that I finally achieved the perfect bars!

Coming up with the perfect Granola Bar recipe was a pretty frustrating process. With granola bars, I learned that it’s all about the ratios. If you don’t have the right balance of dry ingredients to wet ingredients, you will end up with granola instead of bars. Trust me, I have a pantry full granola from all of the failed attempts. Not that it’s necessarily a bad thing since I sprinkle it over yogurt or snack on it throughout the day but we’re talking bars here!

I love the chewiness of commercial granola bars have and these Blueberry Granola Bars have that same texture, minus all of the corn syrup and preservatives. Quick cooking oats work best for granola bars. They are simply whole oats that have been coarsely chopped to speed up with cooking process. Even though these bars are no-bake, I toasted my oats in the oven for a few minutes to deepen their flavor. If you don’t want to turn on your oven, you can certainly skip this step.

I snuck some healthy ingredients into these bars with the addition of chia seeds, flaxseeds, and coconut oil. I had some extra blueberries on hand when I made this batch, so I dried them out in the oven and used them in the bars. Store bought dried blueberries, raisins, cranberries, or strawberries will work just as well.

Lately I have been seeing a lot of Greek Yogurt coated granola bars at the supermarket, so I thought I would be trendy and make a glaze for my bars too. The glaze is completely optional, but it does add a nice touch to the bars!

These bars keep for about a week, a little longer if you keep them covered in an airtight container. If you want to stack the bars, make sure you use a piece of parchment paper between each bar so they don’t stick to each other. Enjoy! Post updated October 12, 2018

Ingredients 

  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 3/4 cups crispy brown rice cereal
  • 3 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • Greek Yogurt Glaze optional
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Instructions 

If using fresh blueberries:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread blueberries on baking sheet. Place in oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the blueberries shrink. Remove from oven and cool completely.

  • Prepare a 10 x 15 inch (or 9 x 13 inch) pan with parchment paper, making sure there is enough paper to overhang the edges. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine toasted oats, coconut flakes, crispy rice cereal, flaxseed meal, chia seeds, and salt.
  • In a small sauce pan over medium-low heat, bring coconut oil, coconut sugar, and honey to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sugar dissolves, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Pour sugar and honey mixture over dry ingredients and mix thoroughly, making sure everything gets coated.
  • Gently fold in dried blueberries.
  • Transfer mixture to prepared pan and press down firmly with a rubber spatula. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

    1. You’re welcome! I haven’t tried these bars with a different type of oil, but I would try it with butter or a vegetable oil.
