Heart Healthy: No Bake Blueberry Bars

What is your favorite no bake recipe? I have been obsessed with “no bake” recipes this summer, especially desserts. These No Bake Blueberry Bars are so easy to make. I saw this Strawberry Oat Bar recipe in a recent Whole Living Magazine, and I had to try them with blueberries. Both the strawberry and blueberry versions are so good! I used almonds instead of macadamia nuts, but any nut would work. Dates and nuts are so healthy for you. Dates are a sweet fruit that grows on palm trees and contain B vitamins, Vitamin C and fiber. They are a good source of energy and low in fat. Almonds are a great protein source, heart healthy and help with cholesterol.
