    Are frozen blueberries required or can fresh be used instead; will it not turn out the same?

    I made these bars for a group of parents and toddlers and they DEVOURED them- some having 2nds and 3rds even! The recipe was very simple and I tweaked it a bit using whole wheat flour and subbing some honey instead of sugar in the blueberry filling. I did notice a hint of saltiness in some of the bites- not enough that it ruined it at all, but it definitely gave the bars an interesting salty/sweet combo. Next time I make these I think I'll halve the salt and see how they taste.

    otherwise, if i used like 1/8 teaspoon of salt, i think they would've tasted delicious. all gone to waste...

    p.s. use a smaller pan

    this recipe is amazing they were very good however i don't think they are like Starbucks because they are much fresher of course Starbucks bars have lots of preservatives and since these don't they taste different.

    I am soooo glad to have found and fell in love with this recipe. Starbucks have not had blueberry bars for over a month! They say it's because blueberries are not in season...very suspicious...they have blueberry muffins! (I think they are fibbing!) HA!

    A preserve might work. It might be a bit messier, but you could cook it with a bit of cornstarch/water mix, to thicken it more. You can't get even frozen berries? Ohhhh I love berries!
