In case you were wondering

you officially love me.

Why?

Because, I created a dessert that is best served at breakfast. An edible delight that is both healthy and buttery. An oat-y and yogurt-y and fruity combination.

THIS is why:

 

and THIS:

 

and better still, I’m giving you the recipe!

adapted from Allrecipes.com

  • Crust:
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup unpacked brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • juice from 1 lemon (or 3 tbs OJ, depending on what will go best with fruit you add!)
  • Cooking spray
  • Filling:
  • 1 and 1/3 cups blueberries, or any fruit you like. Fresh, dried, or frozen!
  • 3/4 Vanilla greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind (optional, use only if you want the bars to be very lemony!)
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 325°.
  2. 2. To prepare crust, weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through cinnamon) in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Drizzle butter and juice over flour mixture, stirring until moistened (mixture will be crumbly). Reserve 1/2 cup oat mixture. Press remaining oat mixture into the bottom of an 8×8-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  3. 3. To prepare filling, combine fruit, yogurt, granulated sugar, and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring well. Spread yogurt mixture over prepared crust; sprinkle reserved oat mixture evenly over filling. Bake at 325° for 40 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.

or because you think it’s funny that Ant thinks I dress CK like a boy!

And I guess, there is a slight possibility that you just love that you don’t actually have to be me….

I mean, I do eat about 30 times a day, walk my dog incessantly, leave the clean dishes in the dishwasher FARRRR too long, hate vacuuming,  only make soup for dinner sometimes, clean the toilet if I can see a ring in it, and my idea of a good movie solely includes the rom/com genre. OH, and I leave the gas tank on E…(love you, ant 😉

Eh, who am I kidding? Did you see the recipe I just posted?

You LOVE me!
