My daughter’s exams are starting. She will need something to nourish her brain and eyesight during her studying period. So blueberry oatmeal yogurt bars are born into my breakfast recipes collection.

These oatmeal bars are high in fibre, as well as blueberries which help boost the brain and eyesight. I have also added coarse almonds to help relief anxiety.

The bars are a little crunchy and chewy, with the blueberries giving small bursts of tartness. In addition, the yogurt glaze completes the overall flavor of these bars. They are wonderful not just for breakfast, but also snack time too!
