Ever since I made the peppermint bark cookies back in December, I’ve been wanting to try a different variation. The shortbread-like crust opens it up for many possible pairings. For example, you could add chocolate chips and walnuts. I decided to keep it simple and use blueberries.
I mainly followed this recipe as a starting point. Some changes: I used egg whites instead of eggs and wheat flour twice instead of all purpose flour. I also cut down on the sugar, as I didn’t want it to get too sweet with the addition of the blueberries.
It was quick and easy to bake, with wonderfully tasty results. I’m looking forward to having these blueberry bars for breakfast all week.
Your blog is always one of my favorite reads and pick-me-ups and it looks even more amazing now with the new layout and header! Great job, Ami 🙂 I love the title “Shots of Happiness”- so perfect!
I was actually looking for a blueberry-based recipe to make for my BF’s mom..she is a huge fan of blueberries and doesn’t like desserts that are too overly sweet. This seems to fit the bill perfectly! I will try it out soon.
Thanks so much for the sweet comment! I really appreciate it 🙂
Let me know how it goes for you! You can even sub in a different kind of fruit..or mix a few together.
That looks amazing! I am going to make that next week and let you know how that goes!
Great, I can’t wait to hear!
two things: I love the new blog design! It’s so professional looking and still remains true to your personality & those blueberry bars look amazing!
I love it, congrats! 🙂
Thanks for the love! 🙂
