Diabetic Dark Chocolate Chip Oat Bar

I know the word "diabetic" in a recipe indicates "tasteless" at times. Well, not so with this recipe. I enjoy fiber bars but the sugars are awful. This one works very well in my no sugar, no white flour lifestyle. And the calories and sodium content are really good as well. Hope you like them and feel free to add cinnamon or whatever seasoning in the yogurt for a different taste. I also use strawberry or cherry yogurt (sugar free of course) to add some fruit flavor. Adding a few finely chopped nuts works, too.
