Blueberry Oatmeal Bars

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Angel1205

I tried many recipes and found that this one worked best for my family. It is a variation from a family recipe. These can also be made into drop cookies. To do so just shorten your baking time about 8 minutes or so.

Tried lowering the salt and upping the blueberries - to no avail. Bake time took much longer than expected, and the results went in the trash after two bites.

  3. Add the eggs and vanilla.
  4. In a separate bowl combine together the flour, salt, baking soda, and oats, mix well.
  5. Now slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture until both are completely mixed together.
