Blueberry crisp meets oatmeal cookie bar in these crisp, Blueberry White Chocolate Oat Bars, an irresistibly easy dessert!
This month Feast and Devour is all about blueberries! You know how I love baking, but I don’t turn my oven on for just any dessert when the temperatures are above 90º at 8 am in the morning! But when you’re gifted a bunch of fresh blueberries it seems like the perfect occasion to do just that. I wanted to try my hand at something new so first I made some simple blueberry jam and then I spread a nice thick layer of it in the center of these tasty oat bars.
They are a healthy-ish treat that is perfect for summer, picnics, the forth of July or anytime of year! I had to give them away so I didn’t continue to snack on them, which admittedly was good for my waistline, but also sad when the afternoon sweets cravings struck.
These Blueberry White Chocolate Oat Bars are so easy to make and have a crisp base/topping of oats and almonds that is filled with a layer of delicious blueberry jam, enjoy and happy baking!
