Blueberry Orange Upside-Down Bars
This is another vintage recipe we found in an old 1960’s newspaper clipping. We adapted it to incorporate whole grains. The result is a punch of blueberry flavor underneath (or on top as soon as you dish it up) an oat and wheat flour “cake”.
Oat flour is naturally sweeter than the other grains and thus is always a great option for desserts. It also has a good bit of fiber and of course, cholesterol lowering qualities.
We all know how high blueberries are in antioxidants. So by pairing oats with blueberries, we’ve got a combination you can’t go wrong with- flavor and health-wise.
