To make the yogurt coating
1.Place the yogurt into a bowl and add the melted butter, mix to combine. Add the icing sugar and whisk until you have a thick consistency. The yogurt mixture will thicken more as it sits.
2.Dip the granola bars into the yogurt mixture to coat the underside. Turn them upside down and put the bars into the fridge for an hour to set.
