A few recipe notes:

No Greek yogurt? Sour cream can be used as a replacement.

Be sure to line your 8 x 8 pan with foil or parchment paper. If using foil, spray it lightly with cooking spray. Let the paper/foil hang a bit over the edge of your pan. This will make removing the bars in one big piece really simple.

Oil: Use a neutral tasting oil for best results. (ex:canola, sunflower, vegetable)

No need to haul out your electric mixer for these. Mix the batter with a silicone/rubber spatula and use a whisk for the glaze. Easy peasy.
