Blueberry Raspberry Oat Bars

I just ran out of my nature bar supply, so I decided to make more. 

I think I have gone on a rant, in a previous post, on how I dislike the pre-packaged store bough granola bars. 

Homemade bars taste so much better and are so darn easy. These ones I made this time, turned out more like a date bar. 

Blueberry Raspberry Oat Bar Recipe

2 1/2 cups oats
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup flax meal
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup canola oil

2 cups frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen raspberries
2 tbsp corn starch
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup granulated sugar


1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

2. In a sauce pan bring blueberries, raspberries, corn starch, lemon juice, and sugar to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until berry mixture becomes sticky.

3. In a food processor mix the dry ingredients. Once the oats have been ground down to smaller pieces, mix in the eggs and oil.

4. Grease a 9 inch baking dish. Spread half of the oat mix on the bottom, then the berry mix, then the rest of the oats. Press down firm. Bake for 25 minutes.
