Blueberry Maple Yogurt Bars

Recipe By Real Simple

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups old fashioned oats
  • 4 ounces butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 ¾ cups plain Greek yogurt (drain 4 cups regular yogurt in a cheesecloth or paper towel-lined sieve overnight to thicken; you should have about 2 cups)
  • 5 teaspoons cornstarch
  • cups blueberries

DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with 2 crisscrossed pieces of parchment, leaving an overhang on all sides.
  • Combine the brown sugar, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and oats in a large bowl. Stir in the melted butter and mix until the pieces form a coarse crumble. Spoon 2 cups of the mixture into the bottom of the pan and gently press into an even layer; reserve the rest.
  • Combine the maple syrup, yogurt and cornstarch in another bowl. Pour into the pan and spread into an even layer. Scatter with blueberries and top with remaining crumble.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, until light golden brown. Remove from oven and let rest for 30 minutes, then transfer to the refrigerator to cool for 1 hour more. Slice into bars and serve. Bars will keep, refrigerated in an airtight container, for 3 days.
