"Forget the campfire, these Peanut Butter S'mores Bars are a decadent, yet wholesome treat that is perfectly portable for summer picnics. Whole wheat flour and oats are used to replace less nutrient dense white flour and Greek yogurt keeps the bars moist and adds a boost of protein. The peanut butter gives the bars staying power through both protein and healthy fats." -- Jenny Shea Rawn

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, chunky peanut butter and vanilla powder together. Beat in the egg. Then combine whole wheat flour, oats, baking soda, salt, yogurt, ¾ chocolate chips and marshmallows.
2 Mix into creamed mixture. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Top with ¼ cup mini chocolate chips. Bake at 350° for 17-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and slice into small squares.
