Triple Berry Oat Bars

These triple berry oat bars are incredible. They make for a perfect grab and go breakfast, school snack, and/or afternoon snack. My family loved them. These triple berry oat bars are packed with healthy nutrients, rich in flavour and easy to make.  You should make these oat bars this weekend, trust me they will be a big hit.

 

I am looking forward to fresh summer produce, I love all summer fruit.  Here on the West Coast, we are so lucky to have a fresh bounty of seasonal produce at our finger tips. This recipe uses a combination of blueberries, blackberries and raspberries but you can easily substitute any berry you want. I like using frozen fruit in my oat bars but fresh can easily be used. Finally, if you are gluten free, these bars can easily be gluten free,  check the label of all your ingredients  to avoid cross contamination.
