Has anyone ever been to the blueberry patch? I went to this summer and picked loads of blueberries.  Big, fat, juicy, sweet, delicious blueberries. And needless to say, I have more blueberries than I know what to do with. So, naturally I’ve been making blueberry everything. Blueberry cobbler, bars, smoothies, oatmeal—you name it!

BLUEBERRIES

What I love most about this recipe is that it’s easy, and that it’s so healthy!

I did the following to make this recipe healthier:

  • using whole wheat flour instead of white flour (unless you are using gluten free flour)
  • Using blueberries as a natural sweetener and reducing the amount of sugar
  • using oatmeal, which is high in fiber and takes long to digest

Here’s an added bonus: Blueberries are good for you! They have so many amazing health benefits in regards to your brain, heart and health! Plus, they are loaded with vitamins and minerals.  They also are an energy boosting food. (Check out this article for more information). Seriously, you can’t go wrong with blueberries.
