The recipe makes a smaller pan, but you will still have enough flavorful fruit bars to share...or to enjoy the next day. TIP: "These square taste best served warm and topped with ice cream," Lori recommends.

"It tasted like cooked oatmeal with some blueberries. It had to be scooped out with a spoon. It was a blueberry crisp,but not tasty. A waste of my blueberries."
