Pipe Dream #290: To Watch It Again – Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bars

yogurt oat bars 3

I’m going to make an idea statement that is unsubtantiated, even in my own mind:

Most things are not worth looking at, listening to or otherwise consuming more than once. Case in point: all of Twitter. Second case in point: The “Watch It Again” tab on Netflix. Brotha, please. You be reaching for the nigh impossible.

There are too many things in this world to try that are unique and different. Plus, the vast majority of things are average or downright not good, and why bother with average more than once when you might discover wonderful?

I know something is probably actually good if I want to deal with it a second time. Case in point: black truffles, this song, The Christmas Story.

These bars (originally muffins, you should try that) are nothing special, but for a healthy blender recipe, I was actually fairly impressed. Moist, freezable. Nothing but oats, greek yogurt and bananas. It’s my favorite blender recipe yet. I’ve been warming them up for breakfast with Nutella and maple bacon peanut butter. Yes, you heard me right.

Point of this whole post that I’m not taking very seriously and is not really about the baked goods: I’m now going to post nearly the exact same picture I posted above so hope you liked it to the max enough to enjoy it again like a better than average film.

Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bars

Adapted from Running with Spoons

1 cup salted caramel Greek yogurt (full fat)

2 ripe bananas

2 eggs

2 cups rolled oats (old fashioned or quick)

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and prepare an 8 x 8″ pan by spraying with non-stick spray (I used Baker’s Joy, which includes flour).

Add all ingredients except to a blender or food processor and process on high until oats are broken down and batter is smooth and creamy.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for around 30 minutes, until the top of the cake is set and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow muffins to cool in pan for a bit before removing. Store in an air-tight container for up to a week or freeze.
