Strawberries and Yogurt Bars
2 Tbsp cornstarch
3 cups Greek yogurt (nonfat or lowfat)
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp almond flavoring
2 cups strawberries, chopped
1 Tbsp flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup old fashioned, regular oats
½ cup light brown sugar, loosely packed
¼ tsp baking soda
½ cup (1 stick) butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine the crust ingredients in a mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 9 inch pan.
For the filling, whisk the egg and cornstarch together in a large mixing bowl. Add the yogurt, sugar, vanilla and almond flavoring; stir until blended. Toss the strawberries with 1 Tbsp flour and fold into the yogurt mixture. Pour the filling over the oat crust.
Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. Store covered in the refrigerator.
