Well, yesterday was Blue Monday, “the most depressing day of the year” or so they say – I say why not brighten up your life with some beautiful blue breakfast bars for your furry pals? I baked another test batch last night and the smell did indeed give me a boost. The smell of blueberries is uplifting – and, I do like pretty things, they always cheer me up. As does shopping for new clothes
These are hearty and healthy treats that I made for The Boys – and when I can sneak some fruit in there, all the better!
1 cup pureed blueberries (thawed from frozen)
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups brown rice flour
2 TBS flax (ground or whole seeds)
Thaw the blueberries, then puree them in a little whizzer first or whatever you have that works. They go into a mixing bowl, along with the eggs. Lightly beat the eggs as you mix all together. Smells DELISH! Like blueberry pie. Simply add flax seeds and oats, and mix again with a spoon or spatch. Finally add the flour and mix.
Roll into a ball, then press out onto a baking sheet. It won’t cover the baking sheet, but just go as far as they take you. Make them the thickness of well, a breakfast bar!
To keep the nice blue colour, bake slowly at 250 degrees for 30-40 minutes.
Stay warm, and stay well.
