Baked Banana Oatmeal Hearts

Nothing says "I love you" around Valentines Day like making some healthy heart shaped baked oatmeal bars to start the day off right!


1 c. plain fat free vanilla yogurt
2 ripe bananas
2 eggs
2 c. oats
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. candy coated chocolate (mine was Valentines colors)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a silicone heart shaped mold (that has heart's about the size of a normal cupcake) with non stick cooking spray. Meanwhile, in a large bowl mix the yogurt, mashed banana and eggs together until somewhat blended. Add in the oats, baking powder and soda and stir until everything is well incorporated. Fill the mold 2/3 of the way full in each cup. Sprinkle with the candy coated chocolate pieces. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Take the mold and flip upside down over a wire cooling rack and tap slightly on the bottom if you are having a hard time getting them out. Gently flip them back over with your hands and let them fully cool before serving or storing.
