Blueberry Breakfast Bars

Blueberries. Just the sound of them make my mouth water. I will eat them just about any way that you give them to me. I came across the idea of making blueberry breakfast bars while on Pinterest one day and decided that they were a must.

After looking at several different recipes, I really couldn’t find a single recipe that suited me. So I sorta fudged around 2 or 3 different recipes and came up with something pretty amazing. And yes, I just “said so myself” but after you try them you will agree!

As part of a healthy and delicious breakfast, try these whole wheat blueberry almond bars. These things are to die for!!!

Whole Wheat Blueberry Breakfast Bars:

Bottom layer:

  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 3/4 cup fresh ground whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup raw cane sugar
  • 1/4 teas. baking soda
  • 1/4 teas. salt
  • 10 tbs. butter (very very soft, or melted)
  • 1 teas. almond extract

Mix the dry ingredients together and then add the butter and almond extract. Mix until you have a crumbly dough. Press this into the bottom of a 9×13.

For the bottom crust blend until you have a crumbly dough

Middle layer:

  • 3 1/2 cups of blueberries
  • 1 teas almond extract
  • 1/3 cup raw cane sugar
  • 3 tbs whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teas. ground nutmeg

Toss the blueberries with the almond extract, then add the sugar, flour and nutmeg. Evenly sprinkle over the bottom layer. Optional: you could smoosh the blueberries to make more of a paste. This simply makes for a more even layer of fruit in your bars.

Blueberries are sweetened just a bit, making the fruit filling perfect!

Top Layer:

  • 1/2 whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 raw cane sugar
  • 1/4 very soft butter

Crumble these together and sprinkle over the top.

Blueberry breakfast bars all ready to go into the oven!Bake at 425 for 15 minutes and then reduce the temp to 350 baking for another 25 minutes.

Because I am the impatient type I tried eating a bar straight out of the oven. Of course at that point the bars were still hot and totally crumbled. Nothing deterred, I pulled out the ice cream and dumped the crumbled bar over the top. Seriously better than hot fudge over ice cream, and a lot better for you!!!!

A hot blueberry breakfast bar, crumbled on top of ice cream for an amazing snack!Definitely cool your bars in the fridge for a couple hours and then cut. They will stay as bars and make a wonderful snack, or addition to a healthy breakfast. I ate them with milk for 3 mornings straight!
