Blueberry Snack Bars

I am so obsessed with everything berry right now.  Every time I walk into my grocery store or my local Farmer’s Market I am overwhelmed with how beautiful the berries are right now.  Strawberries, blackberries and blueberries, lots of blueberries.  

Blueberry, Love

I love blueberry anything and at anytime but I really love them for a snack.  I always try to keep them on hand for a quick bite when the afternoon is just dragging on or for a late night snack.  A few weeks ago I found them on sale and decided to testa  few recipes to make the blueberry shine.

After several tests on several recipes I found the one…Blueberry Snack Bars.

A perfect snack (or breakfast)

These bars really are the perfect snack.  They are hearty, a little sweet and a little tart.  I love them mid morning, with a cup of coffee or in the afternoon.  My niece and nephew love them for breakfast and really I do to.  

They are the perfect handheld oatmeal bar that will keep you going all morning long.

Not just for blueberries

If blueberries are not your favorite, thats ok.  You can use blackberries, strawberries or even peaches.  Even better combine a few together to highlight the best of what the season has to offer. 

Go ahead and get creative and let me know what you come up with…just make sure to tag me @sparklesnsprouts.

Bring on the bars…
