Make Your Own Fruit Bars

Blueberry Rye Bars by Anna Brones

I am excited to have my latest recipe up over on Adventure Journal!

It’s a recipe for Blueberry Rye Bars, perfect as a packable snack, and a recipe that takes full advantage of summer berries. In fact, you can switch out the berries in this for whatever you have on hand. I’ve even made them with dried figs.

Most fruit bar recipes are heavy on brown sugar and butter, but this one uses honey and olive oil instead. You can catch the full recipe here.

On the too sweet, too fluffy and too thick side, classic pancakes are optimal if you’re looking for a sugar high with an immediate crash. Not quite my style.

However, once in awhile you come across a version of a recipe that changes your perspective. A good friend named Lisa, who has an ongoing oatmeal vs. pancake breakfast debate in her household, came up with this one. As she says, when someone says “bowl of oatmeal or stack of pancakes?” oatmeal is regularly the winner, so she found a way to combine the two. The result is convincing even for those of us that aren’t usually wooed by the traditional breakfast.

Friday Photo: A Taste of Summer Fruit

With a mid-winter burst of warm weather and sunshine, I’ve gotten started thinking about spring and summer. Sure, it’s a little premature, but there’s nothing better than dreaming about walking barefoot and picking berries out in the country. So here’s a photo to celebrate all that I love about the warmer months… that will come eventually.
