Happy Saturday to all of you. Many of you will be enjoying an extra long weekend this weekend. What plans do you have? Are you having a BBQ? Are you going to a BBQ? We are having a BBQ at our house tomorrow. It’s just the two of us tomorrow but we’ll still enjoy it!

Perhaps you are still deciding on which desserts to make this weekend. Something fruity, Summery and sweet may be on our mind. It just so happens that I have the perfect recipe for you!

I was inspired to make this recipe after seeing these Raspberry White Chocolate Streusel Bars by A Kitchen Addiction.  I loved the concept of incorporating berries and white chocolate into a recipe. While I do like the flavor of raspberries, I am not a fan of the little seeds in them so I decided to make my own version of these bars with blueberries. I purchased 2 pints of blueberries and made Blueberry Preserves to fill these little bars with. They were a hit with Ken and with the fellow co-workers. I’m sure they will be a hit with your family too. Enjoy the recipe!

    These sound great! The last bars I made didn’t include oats and I like the texture that they lend to the bars. Enjoy your BBQ!

    Perfect timing! I just made some blueberry muffins, and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with all the extra blueberries. Now I know! =)
