Frozen Oat Cups With Yogurt

Sharing is caring!

Does anyone remember when FroYo places were popping up all over the place? Freezing yogurt for a tasty and refreshing snack is definitely not a new concept. In fact, I have always been known to enjoy the texture of frozen treats and candies.

These homemade frozen oat cups with yogurt are a healthier dessert option that are perfect for midnight snacking or nibbling on whenever. I’ve also been known to grab a few of these for breakfast on busy mornings. But, I do consider them more of a treat. I make them with vegan yogurt, but you can easily swap this ingredient out for regular yogurt if you are not dairy-free.

Why you’ll love this recipe

  • These yogurt cups can be mixed up with your favorite toppings for a personalized treat. I like mixed berries with these, but you can use your favorite fruits.
  • They’re one of those healthy snacks that don’t taste too healthy. It’s a healthy treat that can be enjoyed any time of day.
  • You only need a few simple ingredients to make these.
  • This recipe takes less than 10 minutes to make. The real time is spent waiting for them to set up in the freezer.
  • This recipe is kid friendly and the whole family will enjoy munching on them.
  • It’s a no-bake recipe that is perfect for the hot summer months when you need a refreshing treat.

Ingredients needed

  • Oats – Thinly cut quick oats work best for this recipe. If you use steel-cut, they can end up a bit chewy.
  • Peanut butter– I use creamy peanut butter for these oatmeal cups. It blends a lot easier than chunky.
  • Maple syrup – These cups work best with a little bit of added sweetness. 
  • Yogurt – I use creamy yogurt (vegan vanilla), but you can also use regular dairy yogurt if you are not vegan. My favorite brands are Forager and Kite Hill.
  • Mixed berries – Raspberry and strawberry are my favorite for these. Experiment with different berries and fruits.

How to make

In a large bowl, combine the oats, peanut butter and maple syrup. 

Add one spoonful to the bottom of 12 muffin tins. An ice cream scoop works well for this. Press down with a spoon.

Spoon the yogurt over the oat “crust” until even. Then, top with berries. 

Freeze for at least 2 hours. Store in the freezer in a large freezer storage bag or airtight container. 

Tip: use silicone muffin liners for the easiest removal. I would not suggest spraying these with cooking spray.

It’s important not to let these come to room temperature!

Optional additions and mix-ins

The best thing about simple recipes like this one is the ability to customize them. There are so many things you can do with these frozen yogurt cups, the possibilities are endless! 

  • Almond butter – using almond butter instead of peanut butter changes up the nutrition and taste of this treat. Use sunflower seed butter if you have a nut allergy.
  • Vanilla extra – try adding a small amount (1/8 tsp) of vanilla extract or even almond extract to these cups.
  • Chocolate chips – adding vegan chocolate chips to the tops of these cups makes them more of a sweet treat.
  • Sweetener –  you can sweeten these with a drizzle of honey, agave syrup, or brown sugar instead of maple syrup.
