Blueberry + Spinach = Invisible vitamins!

Happy blueberry found on Etsy
One of my favorite recipe's from Jessica Seinfeld's Deceptively Delicious, is, at first glance, the hardest to believe: Blueberry Oatmeal Bars...with SPINACH.

"Spinach?? In a dessert????????  No. Way."

Surprise!  The blueberry preserves not only completely cover up the taste of spinach, the bars taste sooo good I can't stop eating them...well, ok, maybe that's not a benefit.  After all, the added vitamins give these bars a huge bonus beyond an ordinary dessert, but it's still a treat, with lots of sugar.  However, my kids love them, I love them, my husband loves them, even the in-laws think they're great!

One important note:  It is CRITICAL to let the bars cool completely!  If you serve them warm, they taste like cooked spinach.  If you let them cool for several hours, you can't taste the spinach at all, just the yummy.

Oh, and, when you're all caked-out, they make a nifty birthday treat:
