Blueberry Oatmeal Bars

These are essentially a cookie.  So, I’d never suggest eating these for breakfast on a daily basis.  But, one small bar on rare occasions makes a nice breakfast treat.  Add a banana and a small vanilla yogurt.  And, you’ve got a real breakfast.  Sure, it’s not one you’d want to eat every day.  But, it’s not a super-crazy indulgence either.

Cream butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla.  Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine flour and baking soda.  Stir briefly.  Add rolled oats, oat bran and cinnamon.  Stir to combine.

Add dry ingredients to sugar mixture.  Stir briefly.  Add blueberries and white chocolate chips and stir gently until all ingredients are combined.
