Chewy Fruit and Oatmeal Bars   Makes 2 dozen

3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 sugar
1 8oz container of vanilla or plain yogurt (1 cup)
2 egg whites slightly beated
2 TBSP oil (olive or vegetable)
2 TBSP Milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup of flour (or GF flour, rice, potato, etc)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups oats uncooked
1 cup of dried fruit or raisins (extra yummy if you let them sit in warm water while you are mixing the ingredients)

1. In a large bowl, combine sugars, yogurt, egg whites, oil, milk, and vanilla;
mix well.  In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix well. Stir in oats and fruit.
2. Spread dough on bottom of ungreased 13×9 baking pan.
3. Bake 28-32 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into squares and refridgerate to store.

Note- I use about 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 cup of sugar and its always been sweet enough.
