Blueberry Cereal Bars
By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
My recipe of the day is for blueberry cereal bars, which I am posting as a part of Blueberry Week with other bloggers I know.
These are a variation of the classic rice krispie bars, with this version being made with blueberry Cheerios, blueberry jam and dried blueberries.
The Cheerios you can pick up at nearly any market. While dried blueberries abound, including the ones from Ocean Spray which are blueberry flavored, the ones I used I bought at Trader Joe’s and are the smaller dried blueberries.
The smaller berries are really quite flavorful and put a gourmet touch on these childhood favorites, making them a snack of choice for all ages.
Favorite Treats for Teens
Cereal bars are one of the things I wold usually make when my daughter had friends for a sleepover. The typical thing would be a couple of pizzas and several 2-liters of pop, along with a pan of cereal bars and a handful of movies (in case they stopped giggling long enough to actually watch).
They enjoyed it all but probably not more than I did- not wanting to put too much effort into it. Nothing wrong with taking it easy as a hostess-mom.
Welcome to Blueberry Week!
