  • ½ cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven

    Preheat oven to 375ºF.

    In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, prunes, apricots, cranberries, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and cloves.

  6. Dot filling

    Dot the tops of the filling with butter and loosely cover with foil.

  8. Cool

    Remove from oven and let cool slightly.

  9. Combine yogurt and maple syrup
