These easy blueberry crumble bars don't require a lot of ingredients. They are super tasty and did not last long in my household!
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!
Is this Blueberry Crumble Healthy?
Here's how this recipe was modified to make it a little bit healthier:
- Used whole wheat flour instead of white flour (unless using Gluten Free flour)
- The blueberries are used as a natural sweetener and reduce the amount of sugar need
- This recipe contains 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 on how to fight fatigue for more information). Seriously, you can't go wrong with blueberries.
