You don't have to tell anyone these are homemade, healthy (gulp!) granola bars.
Just let your guests enjoy the chewiness of the oats and dense chocolate flavor from the highest-quality dark chocolate you can find.
1 large egg
1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla)
1/2 cup artificial sweetener brown sugar blend
1-1/2 cups gluten-free quick oats
2 tablespoons milled flaxseed

Whisk together the egg, yogurt, and brown sugar. Blend in oats and flaxseed. Add chocolate chips. Spread mixture in an 8-inch-square pan coated with cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes. Cut into 12 bars.
