Peanut Butter Yogurt Oatmeal Bars

I've got a buncha stuff to memorize, and a buncha yogurt in the house. Let's bake!

Put on the Edie Sedgwick soundtrack and measured out a lot of sugar.

There's no oil/butter in this recipe, just greek yogurt, bananas...

…and lots of peanut butter!

Also in there - rolled oats and flour.

I didn't use any mix-ins, and I also didn't have the patience to roll the dough into little balls!

While the bars baked, I ate breakfast and memorized lines for Nice Girls Crew 2 - I can't tell you how great these smelled as I photographed them...

…or how badly I wanted to crawl into bed and eat the entire pan with a fork…

…but instead I kept working, and allowed them to cool for a few hours, so they'd cut nicely into 15 squares.

Packaged up a dozen to share, and ate the last one standing...

…all the crumbs...

…and every last bit!

I'm pleased with how they turned out - but don't bite in expecting a chewy gooey blondie, or something packed with Peanut Butter. They're hearty, and very subtle in flavor - perfect for breakfast or a late afternoon snack.
