Recipe for healthy snacks?

Anyone with a recipe for granola bars or other baked snacks that are low-fat and low-carb? Thanks!

Whole wheat pita bread, split in half horizontally
Cooking spray
Cinnamon sugar

Spray pita bread with cooking spray and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Cut pitas into small triangles, place on a nonstick baking sheet and bake at 350 until crisp and golden. These are good munchies on their own or dipped into yogurt or diced fruit.

This recipe is from Quaker Oats and is one of my favorites.

Chewy Fruit & Oatmeal Bars

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
One 8-ounce container vanilla or plain low-fat yogurt
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. skim milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt (optional)
3 cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 cup diced dried mixed fruit, raisins, or dried cranberries

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, combine sugars, yogurt, egg whites, oil, milk, and vanilla; mix well. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; mix well. Add to yogurt mixture; mix well. Stir in oats and fruit.

Spread dough onto bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan.

Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into bars. Store tightly covered.
