Low Fat Chewy Fruit and Oatmeal Bars
Source: Christy Reese (Quaker Oats)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
One 8 ounce container of your choice low fat yogurt (I used banana yogurt with mine but I don't think it really matters)

2 Tbs vegetable oil
2 Tbs fat free milk
2 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 cups oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 cup diced dried mixed fruit, raisins, or dried cranberries (I used a mixture of many dried fruits and raisins)
1. Heat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, combine sugars, yogurt, egg whites, oil, milk, and vanilla. Mix well. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Mix well. Add yogurt to mixture; mix well. Stir in oats and fruit.
2. Spread dough onto bottom of ungreased 13X9 pan.
