Luna Bar Fiber – Vanilla Blueberry

Did you think I would really leave you all hanging after my last post with the blueberry bar?

Luna Bar Fiber – Vanilla Blueberry

While the Chocolate Raspberry Fiber bar was a wee bit lack luster, I still wanted to give the other flavors a try! Generally, I love blueberry flavored products – blueberry muffins, cereal bars, yogurt, jams/jellies, etc but blueberries themself? well, not so much. I tried not to have high hopes but I’ll be honest. I did. I was super excited to give these a try.

Plus, this bar has the core 4 – obviously I don’t need blueberries when this is so heavily fortified – nevermind the antioxidants that berries bring ;)

Upon unwrapping the sleek packaging I was hit with a blueberry wiff. Not going to lie when I tell you all that I was majorly disappointed to see my enemies show up on this bar too – those annoying wheat germ sprinklings at the bottom. Compared to the Chocolate Raspberry bar, the Vanilla Blueberry seemed to have more sugar crystals and less of my enemies so all was okay.

As for the taste, it was very very reminiscent of the blueberry nutrigrain bar, which I adore. Nothing artificial about this blueberry flavor at all. In fact, the blueberry fruit on the inside was very natural and smooth. The filling complimented the vanilla crust beautifully. Lets talk about the crust for a minute. It is nothing short of fantastic. Instead of a graham crust, it was straight up vanilla. Loooved it. Reminded me of pit crust.

Blueberry Pie Overnight Oats

So I’ll admit – I’ve never had a slice of pie with fruit in it (except for keylime ;) ). The “chunkies” really make the pie unappealing to me. Yes, I’ve never had apple pie. Yes, I still consider myself an American but no you can’t sue me. However, this creation is what I imagine blueberry pie would taste lie.

Blueberry Pie Overnight Oats

  • 1 packet of Quaker Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal
  • 1 container of Dannon Okios Blueberry Yogurt
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup Vanilla Almond Milk
  • Vanilla Blueberry Luna Bar
  • Optional: Blueberries
  1. The night before coming the oatmeal packet, container of blueberry yogurt and almond milk into a bowl. Add enough milk to your desired consistency – less milk for more dough & more milk for a thinner consistency
  2. Stir the contents until thoroughly mixed and let it sit over night in the fridge.
  3. In the morning, take out of the fridge and crumble the Vanilla Blueberry Luna Bar
  4. Enjoy :)

The Vanilla Blueberry Lunabar gave the nice graham cracker crust feeling to this delicious doughiness.

Notes:

  • Any blueberry flavored yogurt, oatmeal or bar would work wonderfully – those are just my favorites
  • Great toppings include: shredded coconut, maple almond butter and bananas
