Oatmeal & Fruit Bars

I've never liked to eat breakfast first thing in the morning. I make these and pack them in my lunch box and eat them either on the drive to work or later in the morning, and I save some for snacks.

2 cups plain yogurt
1/2 cup brown sugar (less or more depending on how sweet the fruit is)
1 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups oatmeal
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup chopped walnuts
3 cups total of a combination of the following:
Chopped dried apples
Chopped dried apricots
Dried cranberries
Chopped dates
All of them or whatever you want, and other fruits can be substituted.

Optional: sprinkle a little brown sugar on top.

Put in greased baking dish, bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

When cool cut and try not to eat all of them while storing them in plastic containers or ziplocks. They keep fine for a week or so in the fridge.
