Oatmeal Berry Bites

Just over a year ago, my husband and I purchased our first house.  Not long after moving in, a new magazine showed up in my mailbox. It is called KIWI Magazine, it was one that I had never heard of and didn’t ever remember subscribing to.  Nevertheless it has arrived at my house, addressed to me, about 6 times per year.  It is a magazine that focuses on growing families and natural/organic foods and products.  I always find an interesting tidbit of information or an informative article that I enjoy.  This time, I found a recipe for these Oatmeal Berry Bites, a healthy and filling snack that was pretty simple to make.  It was kind of like an alternative to a muffin.  A lot more dense and little less cake-like.  A little more filling and a lot less sugar.  It uses whole wheat flour and oatmeal with pure maple syrup as the sweetener.  It originally called for raspberries and blueberries but I only had blueberries available so that’s all I used.  We especially loved the bites that included a juicy blueberry!  Made in individual cups makes it easy to grab and go for breakfast or the perfect after school snack to tide them over til dinner.

    Did the batter look super dry when you were done mixing it? And what kind of oatmeal did you use? Thanks for posting this! I saw it in Kiwi and was hoping to make it but wasn’t inspired until I saw it here.

      Hi Mary, it is a dry batter but I’m not sure I would say mine was ‘super’ dry. I used Quick Oats because that is what we usually buy. Maybe try cutting back a little on the oatmeal and seeing if you like that better.
