Vegan Blueberry Breakfast Bars

With blueberry season quickly approaching, we know many of you will be out picking buckets of fresh blueberries! If you’ve never tried blueberry picking before, I highly recommend it! Not only is it a great way to get outside and do something fun with friends and family, but it’s also very relaxing, and the flavor of fresh-picked blueberries is unmatched! 

Yes, recipes like blueberry pie or blueberry crumble are perfect recipes to make with your blueberries (Just make sure to sweeten them with NOW Foods®️ Organic 1:1 Monk Fruit Sweetener  😉). However, using them in a meal prep recipe like these vegan blueberry breakfast bars, which also double as a snack or dessert, is our favorite way to enjoy them!

These vegan breakfast bars are full of sweetness that comes only from the fresh blueberries and the monk fruit sweetener. I only use NOW Foods®️ Organic 1:1 Monk Fruit Sweetener in my recipes because it gives everything the perfect amount of sweetness with no bitter aftertaste. Plus, there is no fake stuff like sucralose or aspartame. The monk fruit sweetener also fits all diets from vegan to keto, so it’s a win/win around here for meal prep recipes! 

Vegan Blueberry Breakfast Bars are full of better-for-you foods like oats, flaxseed, coconut oil, and blueberries. The balance of carbs, fiber, protein, and healthy fats is what our bodies need each morning to keep our blood sugar stable and our bellies satisfied until lunch. 

Swaps

If you’re not a fan of blueberries, you can sub with any fruit you love or even chocolate chips! If you don’t have access to fresh berries, frozen will work. Just make sure not to thaw the berries before cooking the bars (unless you don’t care about them turning completely purple!). 

If you’d like to add a bit more protein, you can add 1-2 scoops of collagen (if you’re not vegan) or a plant-based protein powder. You will need to use an extra splash of milk if using a protein powder. *Do not use whey protein powder. This will dry out the bars. 

Serving 

If you’re not vegan, feel free to swap the yogurt for Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, or hard-boiled eggs to add additional protein. We also added kiwi for serving because #colors. Who doesn’t love a colorful meal prep full of different vitamins and minerals? You can sub the kiwi for more blueberries or other fruit of choice. Another great idea would be to swap the kiwi for a tablespoon of almond butter to kick up this dish’s heart-healthy fats and satiety. 

As a snack, these vegan bars can be served as is. You can heat them up and top them off with a dollop of whipped cream and a few extra berries as a dessert. This recipe would also be excellent to take to a summer BBQ. Double or triple the batch and cut them into smaller bars for a healthy addition to your bbq dessert spread! 

No matter how you decide to enjoy them, we guarantee you will love them!
