Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients (oats through salt).
  3. In a small bowl, mash the banana. Add the beaten egg and mix. Add remaining wet ingredients (yogurt through milk) and stir well to blend.
  4. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir to combine. Mixture will seem too thick at first but will come together quite nicely. Fold in dried blueberries.
  5. Spray 9-inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray or brush with melted ghee or coconut oil. Pour batter into skillet and place into oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean (please check after 20 minutes!).
  6. Remove to wire rack to cool. Bars will start to pull away from the sides of the skillet. Cool at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
  7. Eat as is, serve with yogurt, top with nut butter, etc. NOM!
Recipe Notes

*Feel free to use dried fruit of choice.  My first batch had raisins and they were good but I think the blueberry is better. But, I LOVE blueberries. If dried blueberries aren’t your thing, add whatever you wish. Dried cherries would be great here, too!

*If you only have plain Greek yogurt, increase vanilla extract to 1 teaspoon.

*Feel free to add 1/2 cup chopped nuts, if you desire.

*If you don’t have pure maple syrup, you can substitute raw honey.  The taste will change slightly but it will still be yummy! 🙂
