Hi there friends!

It’s summertime and blueberries are abundant (and on sale most places), so I thought this would be a great recipe to share with you today.

As you probably know (unless you’ve been under a rock), blueberries are not only a very yummy fruit, they are very high in nutritional value as well.  Here are a few facts from 100 Best Health Foods about blueberries…

  • they contain a cholesterol-lowering compound
  • they can help prevent coronary heart disease, diabetes and cancers
  • they help beat urinary tract infections
  • they appear to help protect against intestinal upsets, including food poisoning and…
  • their carotene, in the form of lutein and zeaxanthin, helps keep eyes healthy

The book goes on to say that blueberries preserve more of their vitamin C content if eaten raw and that they lose only a few nutrients when frozen.

Wow!

I’ve shared serveral blueberry recipes in the past and this one is just as yummy.  Just in case you want to take a look at my previous blueberry recipes, here are the links…

Yes!  I love blueberries! ❤  They can be used in so many different ways.  What are some ways you like to have your blueberries?

Before I give you the recipe I would like to warn you that this smells so good when it’s baking that you’ll have a hard time letting it cool for a few minutes before digging in. 🙂  Now that you’ve been warned, here’s how you make it…
