Sweet Yogurt Granola Bars

Halloween doesn’t have to be all about sugary sweets! These sweet granola bars pack flavor without quite as much sugar, and use ingredients you likely already have!


-2 cups rolled oats

-1 cup sunflower seeds

-⅓ cup honey

-Pinch of salt

-½ cup whole-milk plain yogurt


-Preheat oven to 400°F.

-Spread oats and sunflower seeds on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until fragrant, 5 to 8 minutes.

-Coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray. Cook honey in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, without stirring, until large foamy bubbles form, 2 to 4 minutes. (The bubbles will start out small and increase to about ¾ inch or larger when the honey is done.)

-Immediately pour the toasted oat mixture and salt into the honey; stir until completely coated. Quickly press the granola into the prepared pan using a heat-resistant spatula coated with cooking spray. Let cool for 30 minutes. Cut into 8 wedges and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

-Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the wedges on the pan and spoon 1 tablespoon yogurt onto the bottom third of each wedge. Place in the freezer until the yogurt hardens, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
