A very simple recipe for soft, slightly chewy and amazingly delicious oatmeal bars. These are packed with dried cranberries and filled with creamy Greek yogurt. And the best part is that these are actually quite healthy. Yes, they contain sugar and flour, but instead of butter I used coconut oil and the filling is made with Greek yogurt which is definitely good for you. That makes they're perfect for breakfast. Keep them in the fridge for a few days but I'm sure they will not last that long!
Cranberry Greek Yogurt Oatmeal Bars
125g / 1 cup flour
90g / 1 cup quick-cooking oats
100g / 1/2 cup soft light brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 tbsp Greek yogurt
160g / 1 1/3 cup dried cranberries
285g / 1 cup Greek yogurt
100g / 1/2 cup white sugar
2 tbsp flour
1) Preheat oven to 160C / 320F. Prepare a 20 x 20 cm / 8 x 8 inch baking pan.
2) In a large bowl, mix together flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Add coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of the Greek yogurt to the oat mixture and stir to combine. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Set the remaining 1/3 aside.
3) In a small bowl, combine together dried cranberries, Greek yogurt, white sugar and flour. Spread the mixture over the crust and sprinkle the remaining oat mixture over the filling.
4) Bake for 25-35 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool completely before slicing.
