Blueberry Breakfast Bars
Combining the ingredients and letting the food processor do a large portion of the work sounds pretty good to me. It’s really quite the simple recipe and we like to make it together as a family. I let the boys take over the part of getting the prepared pan good to go and the rest is just easy from there!
We’re not picking eaters in our house at all but we do have our favorites. My boys love this option for breakfast because they say it “jumpstarts” their tastebuds for the day.
Can you use frozen blueberries for this recipe?
My thought on this is no. And only because frozen blueberries tend to have a ton of liquid in them that seeps out once they start to thaw. Not only will this make your filling have too much moisture and wet, but it will also take away some of that “pretty” factor as well.

This recipe for Blueberry Breakfast Bars is so simple!
- 6 cups of blueberry yogurt
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 pint of fresh blueberries - rinsed and drained
- 2 Tablespoons of granulated sugar
- 4 cups of oatmeal
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- pinch of salt
- Start by lining a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Take the oatmeal and put it in the middle of the parchment paper. Mix in the honey, brown sugar, cinnamon, maple syrup, vanilla, and a pinch of salt on the top of the oatmeal.
- Using your clean hands, mix the granola altogether until well blended.
- Once you have it all mixed, take and spread out in a single layer on the parchment paper.
- Put it into the oven and bake it for 10 - 15 minutes, or until the granola is golden brown.
- Once done, take out of the oven and allow it to cool on a wire rack.
- Next rinse the blueberries and let dry.
- Once you've noticed that the granola is cool to the touch (still warm), take and put it in the bottom of a 9X9 pan lined with parchment paper. Press it down so it's even.
- Then, take and place it in the freezer.
- Grab a bowl and put in the blueberry yogurt, vanilla, and 1/2 cup of the blueberries. Then, mix well.
- At this point, take the granola from the freezer, and put the Yogurt mixture right on top of it.
- You should have some blueberries leftover so take and mix them with 2 Tablespoons of sugar and put them on top of the Yogurt.
- Cover with foil and put it in the freezer overnight.
- In the morning, cut into squares and enjoy!
