3 Quick and Easy Blueberry Snacks

August 9, 2014

It's full on blueberry season here in Maine. There are road side stands galore, and everyone knows someone selling them by the 5 pound box full. If you have the chance to buy bulk blueberries, do so. They freeze and taste wonderful frozen in recipes and just in a bowl with some whipped cream. So tasty, and full of antioxidants. 

Baked Blueberry Donuts

From The Simple-Sweetlife

These are packed with the natural sweetness of blueberries, and they are baked instead of being fried. That means they are a bit healthier than the regular version, right? We love the glaze! 

Blueberry Quinoa Fruit Salad

From The Crave Gallery

There is plenty of natural sweetness in this fruity quinoa salad. It makes a healthy and long lasting breakfast, giving you the fuel needed to tackle the day. 

Roasted Blueberry Peach Crostini

From Pretty In Pistachio

This unique and lovely snack has everything you love in the ingredient list. The fresh blueberries are gently roasted to bring out their natural sweetness and add a bit deeper flavor. Combine them with sweet sliced peaches and creamy marscarpone cheese on a crispy slice of French baguette and you have an appetizer that can pass as a light lunch and healthy snack. It's a fabulous way to enjoy the flavors of the season in a whole, new way.
