Chobani Cranberry Oatmeal Bars

About 2 weeks ago Emily from Chobani invited me to attend an intimate brunch where we would all meet Chef Jason, Chobani Kitchen Executive Chef!  Emily is super sweet, and I can’t thank her enough for inviting me!! I love Chobani and couldn’t miss it, so the hubby and I went and then spent the day in the city.  We tasted recipes, talked about Chobani, and even got to chat with Chef Jason! We also watched him make a delicious omelet made with Chobani!  I’ve used Chobani in the place of sour cream, mayonnaise, but I’ve never thought of actually cooking with it.  I wasn’t even aware that it could hold up in temperatures while baking!  I’m so glad I went because not only do I have another reason to love this incredible yogurt, I can share healthier options when I bake/cook for my friends and family!

I have to admit ever since eating one Chobani I can’t even think about eating another yogurt.  Those fake colored, artificially sweetened, and who know’s what is in this thing yogurts are a part of my past – that’s where they’re staying!  I’m so excited to start experimenting in the kitchen with Chobani and I’m even more excited that they gave us all a little recipe box.

 They also gave us Chobani Kitchen Aprons – I love Aprons!

Friday was my last day of work until September, so I figured I’d make some goodies for my co-workers. These bars were the first to go! :)

    Hi, I’m completely mesmerized by all the great recipes you can create with this yogurt (thanks for sharing) but mostly I’m impressed by the love Chobani eaters have for this yogurt. Personally I’ve only had Fage but the more I meet Chobani eaters the more I see the love they have for it. What is it about this yogurt you love so much? It’s gotta be more than taste because I love the taste of Fage, so what is it? I’m gonna go buy some Chobani and try it myself but would still love to know why you love it so much. Thanks.
