Paleo Blueberry Breakfast Bars on Elle Fait

I’m really iffy about fruit. Like 90% of the time I want nothing to do with it. I’ve just never been a big fan. I mean, if I’m going to have something sugary and sweet, I want chocolate. Make sense, right? This is why we all want chocolate chip cookies instead of raisin cookies. Fact.  The whole açai bowl trend looks great on Instagram, but I have yet to try one because I want a chocolate version. I’m Planning a trip to Maui next month, and I’m trying to find a place where I can get some sort of chocolate smoothie bowl that isn’t too sweet. Apparently I’m asking for too much, because I have yet to find one.

All that aside, I’m not entirely against some blueberries… mostly for health reasons. I feel like I wouldn’t be able to call these “breakfast bars” they didn’t have blueberries included. Granted, they are made with sweet potato and apple sauce, so I guess they would still count. These bars are basically a salad, now that I think about it. Also, the blueberries add a level of aesthetic that would otherwise be missing here, so you can see why I made a fruit exception.
All of that to say that I made some really good Chocolate Blueberry Breakfast Bars even though I don’t like fruit, but it still worked out pretty great and I have no regrets. I hope you love them!
