Berry Almond Granola Bars

Last week my friends at San Diego 6 News asked me to host a segment on “Heart Healthy Dishes”.

I knew I wanted to make my healthy and delicious Sweet Potato Black Bean Quinoa Burgers, loaded with heart healthy ingredients. I also wanted to throw a couple of new recipes in the mix!

These Heart Healthy Granola Bars are the first of two new recipes  I premiered on the show, the other, a Heart Healthy Fruit Smoothie Recipe!

Bake for 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and slice into bars or cut into fun shapes with cookie cutters. I went with circles, but hearts for Valentine’s Day, stars for 4th of July or shamrocks for St Patricks Day would be fun!

Blueberry Oat Granola Bars

So much healthiness for your heart in these delicious little bars!

Soluble fiber which can lower cholesterol levels from the oats,  polyphenols from the blueberries which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, the olive oil, high in monounsaturated fat, also known as “heart healthy fat” and the flax seed full of omega 3 fatty acids and fiber!
