Ingredients

Scale
  • 9 pitted soft dates
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 2 cups of yogurt
  • 1 cups frozen berries or fresh fruit, stewed

Instructions

  1. Add frozen or fresh blueberries in a pan, heat up to stew, cook until they pop and become like a syrup/stew. Set aside to cool to be used later.
  2. Add all the ingredients in a food processor, start with the dates first. Blend dates until smooth or near smooth, then add the other ingredients, which includes oats, almond butter or any other nut butter. I like cashew butter too. Then add flaxseed (ground), cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, maple syrup, and, a dash of salt, especially if using unsalted almond butter.
  3. As you process/blend, you may need to use a spatula to push down the ingredients in other to combine well. Process until all ingredients are mixed in well. I would usually taste to adjust flavors before transferring the mix to a parchment-paper-lined baking dish.
  4. Time for the best part: gently turn over the entire mix into the already lined baking pan. Using your power (lol) press the mix to the base of the baking pan. I would wear gloves and use both hands to give an excellent press. Sometimes I ask the kiddies to help out too (of course with gloves on.)
  5. OPTIONAL STEP: bake this in 350 preheated oven for only 10 minutes. Wait until it completely cools before the next step. (I have made this several times without baking the oat base and it turns out excellent. I guess I bake it because I like the extra work. Lol, but baking the oat base is optional.
  6. Pour your choice of yogurt on the oat base, ensuring to cover all of it.
  7. Sparingly sprinkle the already cooled berries syrup. Use a stick/skewer to make a swirl. I let my kids do this! (Fun work.)
  8. Now place this entire creation in the freezer for about 3 – 4 hours or until frozen. Then, this goodness is ready whenever you are!

Notes

Very addictive, for real!

Ensure to use original maple syrup or any other natural sweetener in its original form.

Also, use almond butter that has only one ingredient – almond.

When it comes to yogurt; dairy or dairy free works just fine. I have used both in the past. To make this vegan, stick with plant-based yogurt.

Depending on your freezer power, the freezing may only take 1 – 2 hours.

You may allow thawing for a minute or so before cutting or just cutting immediately. Enjoy!
