Blueberry Peach Breakfast Bars

Hun... What's for Dinner?- Blueberry Peach Breakfast Bars

We did it! We survived the first week of school! The kids have been getting up every morning, without complaining and LOVE their new teachers. Queenie is excited about reading and writting and I love how enthusiastically she is jumping into grade 1. MrB is now in grade 4 and I have to remind myself that my little boy, isn't so little anymore. He has a really amazing teacher this year and is so excited to be learning about the medieval times.

I've been trying to keep busy by working in the kitchen. I decided to make the kids a snack they could bring in their lunches and went with a breakfast bar type of dessert. They both love Nutrigrain bars, so I knew this would be a hit. My plan was to make an oatmeal cookie type of crust for the top and bottom and fill it with blueberries. Then I noticed that my peaches were super ripe, so I added some in along with the blueberries. This tastes very similar to a blueberry crisp and the kids mentioned that they would go great with vanilla ice cream, LOL. This is a great lunch box addition, but would also make a great dessert, at the end of a dinner party.

Hun... What's for Dinner?- Blueberry Peach Breakfast Bars

Blueberry Peach Breakfast Bars

2 C flour
2 C quick cooking oats
1 C brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 C butter, melted
1 egg
1/4 C milk
3 C blueberries (I used wild)
2 C fresh peaches, peeled and diced
1/4 C sugar
2 Tbs flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, and baking soda. Mix well to combine. In a smaller mixing bowl, mix the melted butter, milk and egg. Pour over dry ingredients and stir until the mixture is crumbly. Press half the mixture into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Combine the blueberries and peaches, with the sugar and flour. Toss to coat completely. Pour blueberry mixture onto the crust and sprinkle remaining dough evenly over top. Bake for 25-30 minutes; until golden brown. Let cool completely before cutting.
