I find it extremely hard to resist a blueberry muffin. You know those big, giant butter bombs you can buy at the grocery store? I love them, every last crumb. But I don't eat them. I think it's been years since I last had one. But that's only because I tend to avoid the grocery store bakery like the plague. I am afraid of the grocery store bakery and ultimately powerless in its presence. So again, I don't go there. Because I find it extremely hard to resist a blueberry muffin.
Enter the Blueberry Nut bar from Two Moms in the Raw. I'd show you a picture, but I ate the thing like a starving child quite some time ago. I might have been driving at the time, which makes for yet another reason why I didn't take a picture.
Anyway, it was good.
And flavorfully inspiring.
I think I had a batch of my granola bar bites at home, and I'm pretty sure the very thought of that recipe in combination with the empty wrapper in my hand led to a granola bar bite epiphany of sorts.
I could totally make a Blueberry Muffin Granola Bar Bite. So I did.
And I'm the only one that eats them.
You should make them. No really, you should. Just don't buy the blueberry flavored cranberries. Buy actual dried blueberries. I couldn't find them at my store, only to go back to said store a few days later to find them exactly where I had been looking. I swear on my oatmeal they weren't there the first time.
I swear it.
Inspiration: Granola Bar Bites
• 1-2/3 cup oats
• 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1/4 tsp cinnamon
• 1/2 tsp wheat germ
• 1/4 tsp ground flaxseed
• 1/2 tsp Chia seeds
• 1 cup dried blueberries
• 1/2 cup crushed pecans
• 1/2 cup crushed walnuts
• 1/3 cup almond butter
• 1 tsp vanilla protein powder
• 1 tsp vanilla
• Splash of water
• 1/2 cup honey
1) Combine all ingredients and mix completely. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
2) Preheat oven to 350F. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out dough and form into a solid and compact ball—this is important! Bake for 15 minutes.
3) Cool for five, then put on a dinner plate and cool in the 'fridge until they're completely cold. Transfer to an airtight container and store. Or eat. Whichever comes first.
