Apple blueberry pie bars – baking for kids

    I love blueberries and buy them almost every week when I visit the market.We love to eat them as such. Its a good source of antioxidants. Sometimes, I feel like trying something with these black beauties and use them in my bakes. This time when I had a excess of blueberries, I found this recipe and as I love fruity desserts , I decided to go ahead with this one. It was really yummy and you can try making this one with cherries or strawberries or other berries too!!Kids are surely going to love this. Its quite healthy also as whole wheat flour/atta and oats is used in this recipe with extra goodness of two fruits.I wouldn’t mind having this for my breakfast too!! So do try it and let me know how you like it.
