This Ninja is proving me wrong that healthy can taste good. With a low amount of sugar,flour and fat these bars are for the purist at heart. They are delicious bites of oats & blueberries; pure & wholesome of the goods inside. :-)

These are NOT a sweet bar, but for more for those who are eating healthy and want to cut back on calories, sugar and fat. I look forward to making them again and adding some spice, along with trying it with different berries too.

Recipe is from my Ninja Cooking System cookbook. I do not know how this would turn out in the oven as it is steam baked.
