As you might have guessed from the pancakes I made, I love blueberries! One of my favorite ways to eat fresh blueberries is with cottage cheese but I also love them in yogurt or on cereal. And of course in desserts…especially blueberry pie! I don’t find a lot of fresh blueberries here but I have found that frozen ones work just as well in most recipes.
I found this recipe on a great blog called Farmgirl Fare. It combines two of my favorite things…oatmeal cookies and blueberries! These are called breakfast bars but if you don’t like sweets for breakfast, these make a great dessert…especially served with some vanilla ice cream!
As farmgirl points out at the end of her recipe, blueberries are really good for you! So if you’re gonna splurge and eat dessert, why not make it one that at least offers some health benefits? In fact, this dessert is twice as good for you because it’s also filled with oats, another one of the world’s healthiest foods! I know, I know, the blueberries and oats don’t make all the calories from the butter and sugar disappear. But wouldn’t you feel better eating a homemade blueberry bar rather than some preservative-filled, prepackaged junk food?
