Blueberry Granola Bars

(originally made 7/2008)

Made these as a test run yesterday to see if they'd be good for our camping trip.   I'm not sure if my blueberries were just too big, but there didn't seem to be enough "dough" to cover the berries.   The ones that did hold together tasted delicious, but I'm not sure I'd make them again.

**Edited to add that after they'd set overnight they held together much better.   Will definitely give them another try, maybe cutting back the blueberries just a bit.



  Blueberry Granola Bars

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     1/2           cup  honey
     1/4           cup  firmly-packed brown sugar
  3        tablespoons  vegetable oil
  1 1/2      teaspoons  ground cinnamon
  1 1/2           cups  quick-cooking oats
  2               cups  fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 350º F. Lightly grease a 9 × 9-inch square baking pan. In a medium saucepan combine honey, brown sugar, oil and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, and boil for 2 minutes; do not stir. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats and blueberries. Stir in honey mixture until thoroughly blended. Spread into prepared pan, gently pressing mixture flat. Bake until lightly browned, about 40 minutes. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into 1 1/2 × 3-inch bars.
