I was walking through the grocery store the other morning and I could smell freshly baked cookies. I followed the smell and watched the bakers placing out big, soft and delicious oatmeal cookies in the display case. I, of course, enjoyed one while I did my grocery shopping feeling like I totally deserved this yummy treat for the busy work week I finished.
Enter.. a new rhubarb garden recipe! The sweetness of the blueberries pairs lovely with the tart rhubarb. I have adapted the recipes several times finding ways to reduce the sugar more and more and still have it be a lovely treat. Also adding in plant-based protein, fiber, and healthy fats help to balance these bars to move from a dessert to a healthy snack. This also helps to slow blood-sugar spikes that can occur when consuming fruits. I will enjoy one with my morning smoothie or as a 3 pm snack when you feel your energy crashing.
