Recipe

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.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Toss the blueberries with 1 tbsp. brown sugar and balsamic vinegar is using. Roast for 20 minutes in a glass pan. Set aside and let cool.
  2. Turn the oven down to 350 degrees. Line a 9 X 9 baking dish with parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the oats, flours, brown sugar, salt, and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, yogurt, melted butter, and honey.
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients to form a dough.
  5. Press 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of your baking dish.
  6. Pour the roasted blueberries and any juice on top.
  7. Top with the remaining dough. This can be a little difficult so if you need to just press small pieces of dough flat in your hands and lay on top, scattering them to cover most of the top. It’s fine if blueberries poke through in some spots.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes and let cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting into squares.
