I’m sure you’ve seen the viral yogurt clusters, especially if you spend time on TikTok and Instagram. They are usually made with greek yogurt, honey or maple syrup, fruit like strawberries or mango, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. But in true Dani fashion, today i’m sharing a fun Snickers take on them! However, if you are feeling something fruity, these strawberry yogurt bites are to die for!

Ingredients & substitutions

These viral bites went viral for good reason.. their ease and short, simple ingredients list. All you need are a few staples, you hopefully already have at home!

  • Yogurt: Greek yogurt and coconut yogurt both work here. The trick is to use THICK yogurt. Runnier yogurt will not work. For coconut yogurt, I love the brands Cocojune and Culina.
  • Powdered peanut butter: Powdered peanut butter adds healthy protein to the recipe without having to use protein powder, while also adds extra peanut butter flavor. Another option would be to swap in protein powder! See notes in the recipe card.
  • Peanut butter: We add peanut butter to help thicken and help firm the bites up. Add a healthy fat source keeps the bites creamy and prevents them from becoming that “icy” texture.
  • Maple syrup or honey
  • Baking staples: sea salt, vanilla extract
  • Chocolate chips: You can use chopped chocolate bars or chocolate chips. Hu Kitchen chocolate bars/chips are my favorite and they offer both dark chocolate and grass-fed milk chocolate options! You can use my code “danishealthyeats” for a discount!

What molds or pan works best for yogurt clusters?

I highly reccommed using a silicone pan or mold as it makes the removal process so easy. These can be difficult and kind of a mess, to try and get out of a metal pan (unless you use cupcake liners!). There are a few options that I love:

Steps

  • Step 1: First, combine all the yogurt cluster ingredients in a large bowl, mixing until combined.
  • Step 2: Then you will stir in the chopped dates and any other mix-in’s you’d like! I love adding cacao nibs for crunch!
  • Step 3: Divide the yogurt mixture amongst your mini muffin tin.
  • Step 4: Top with chocolate! In a small bowl, add the chocolate and coconut oil (the coconut oil is used to help thin the chocolate). Next, heat the chocolate in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until melted. Add a little chocolate to the top of each bite, covering the yogurt. You can top with a few peanuts and sea salt if you’d like (although I like to add sea salt after they’re frozen!) Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours to allow them to completely firm up.
  • Step 5: Once firm, remove from the muffin tin or mold and store in an air-tight container in the freezer.

Variations

These peanut butter chocolate yogurt clusters are delicious as is, but there are so many ways to switch them up!

  • Add fruit: Skip the powdered peanut butter, swap almond or cashew butter for the peanut butter, and add in your favorite chopped fresh fruit! Strawberries, blueberries, mango, and even apples are all great! I’m over here dreaming of using cherries!
  • Additional mix-ins: Granola, cacao nibs, sprinkles, dried fruits, and chopped nuts/seeds are all great add-ins!
  • Low sugar/keto: To make these low-sugar or keto friendly, you can swap the maple syrup or honey for monk fruit drops, stevia, etc.
  • Dairy-free/Vegan: These are made vegan by using a dairy-free yogurt (I like coconut yogurt!) and using maple syrup rather than honey.

Expert tips & FAQ’s

  • The best yogurt to use: I can’t stress enough, it’s so important to use a THICK yogurt. Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt work best. If you use a brand of yogurt that is thinner in consistency, these will not set up or be as creamy as they’re meant to be.
  • Do you have to use powdered peanut butter? Nope! Although it adds extra peanut butter flavor and protein to the recipe. If you don’t want to use it, simply leave it out. If you’re looking for a good option, I love this Organic Powdered Peanut Butter!
  • Melting the chocolate: Don’t skip the oil! This helps thin the chocolate out and makes topping the yogurt clusters easier. You can use the double-boiler method if you don’t want to melt your chocolate in the microwave. My biggest tip is to stir the chocolate really well in between heating increments. This will help prevent over-heating the chocolate and having it seize!

  • Use a cookie scoop: You can definitely use a spoon to scoop the yogurt into your mold, but I find using a small cookie scoop makes this quick and less messy! The cookie scoop I linked is 1 tbsp!
  • Allow them to freeze long enough! If you try to remove the bites from the pan before they are firm, it’ll be a mess. Definitely give them 2-4 hours, depending on your freezer, before removing them and storing in an air-tight container.
  • Storing leftovers: These will keep in the freezer for up to a month!
  • Can I add protein powder? Yes! I would omit the powdered peanut butter and add in 1/4 cup protein powder. I love using Macro Mike salted caramel or peanut butter flavor in these – it makes them taste like dessert! You can use my code “amb-dani” to save on any order!

Ingredients
  

Yogurt Bites

  • 1 1/4 cups THICK yogurt *greek or coconut yogurt work best
  • 1/3 cup powdered peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 3-4 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 1/3 cup finely copped dates
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • generous pinch of sea salt

Topping

  • 1 cup chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, combine all of the yogurt bite ingredients, besides the dates, mixing until completely smooth. Taste and add a little extra maple if needed.
  • Fold in the chopped dates and any other mix-in's you'd like! I love adding cacao nibs for crunch. Divide the yogurt mixture amongst your mini muffin tin, filling each crevice up about 1/3 way, leaving the last 1/3 for chocolate. I find it easiest to use a tbsp sized cookie scoop.
  • In a small bowl, add the chocolate and coconut oil. The coconut oil is used to help thin the chocolate. Heat in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring well between each, until melted and smooth. Add a little chocolate to the top of each bite, covering the yogurt. You can top with a few peanuts and sea salt if you'd like (although I like to add sea salt after they're frozen!)
  • Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours to allow them to completely firm up.Once firm, remove from the muffin tin or mold and store in an air-tight container in the freezer.

Notes

    • Storing leftovers: These will keep in the freezer for up to a month!
    • Can I add protein powder? Yes! I would omit the powdered peanut butter and add in 1/4 cup protein powder.
  •  
    • You MUST use a thick yogurt for these to turn out the best! Thinner yogurts will not set up the same or be as thick/creamy.
