Soft oat bites with all the taste and sweetness of fresh blueberries. Bursting with flavor, rich in antioxidants, and full of fiber. Vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, and no added sugar!
Today is a special day, friends! We’re having a celebration. A party of sorts. A BLUEBERRY BONANZA to be exact!
Blueberries are one of my favorite summer fruits. I buy frozen blueberries all year round, but during the summer months, fresh blueberries can’t be beat.
Not only is it a great time of year for them, but also blueberries are one of the most antioxidant rich foods you can eat. Pretty darn delicious too!
Wegmans recently had JUMBO blueberries in the produce area and I couldn’t help but buy a few pints. Of course, I could eat them by the handful, but I bought extra to do a little experimenting in the kitchen with.
My goal was to create a snack/energy bite that’s just as satisfying as typical no-bake bites but with no nuts, no added oil/fats, and of course no sugar added since the blueberries would be the star of the show anyways.
BLUEBERRY OAT BITES!
Adapted from my some of my other fruity bites I’ve made over the years, these blueberry delights are full of real blueberries, high in plant-based protein, and have the texture of a soft-baked cookie. They’re also vegan, low-fat, and sugar-free. Who needs added sugar when you have fresh, fruity summer blueberries?
