Greek Yogurt Cheerios Snack Bites

Growing up, there were three breakfast foods I used to love: Cheerios, yogurt and granola bars. But they weren’t just for breakfast; I would snack on them all the time, because breakfast foods are just the best.

Therefore, I decided I to create my own fun snack bites inspired by some of my favorite breakfast foods. At first, I wasn’t sure about how these bites where going to turn out but, oh my gosh, I am so exited about the outcome. 

The base of these bites is simply Cheerios (which are made with whole grain), peanut butter and honey. Simple and delicious. Once you coat the bites in Yoplait Greek 100 plain yogurt, you have to let them sit for a bit. I left mine overnight, but six hours should do the trick. Then just store them in an airtight container for up to two weeks. So delicious, and full of protein and whole grains. The perfect fuel for a busy morning (or afternoon)! 

So let’s make ‘em! Grab all your dry ingredients for the bites—see exact list of ingredients in the recipe below. Mix them together in a large bowl.

Now melt the peanut butter, honey and vanilla together until smooth and creamy.

Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and mix well. Place the bowl in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.

Remove mix from the freezer and roll it into tablespoon-size balls. Alternatively, you can grease a muffin tin and push the cereal mixture into the cups. Place back in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the Greek yogurt coating. All you need is Yoplait Greek 100 plain yogurt, unflavored gelatin, honey, vanilla and powdered sugar.

Dip the frozen bites into the yogurt coating and allow the excess to drip off. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Allow to dry 6 hours or overnight.
