I have a thing for fruit and oat bars. I love the crunchy, nutty oats paired with whatever fruit is in season. I also love that they are portable so I can grab one as I frantically run out the door.
This recipe for fruit and oat bars amps things up by starting with roasted berries. I used blueberries but any berry/combination of berries would work. Stone fruits like peaches, apricots, or plums would also be delicious. I like to roast mine with a touch of balsamic vinegar for added depth, but you can leave that out. From there, the berries are packed into a hearty dough with oats, brown sugar, and a touch of honey. They make a great breakfast or snack, and are a great portable pick-me-up on a busy day.
