These Verry Berry Oat Bars can be made with any berry, but we love blueberries or raspberries! The Blueberry Bars have a nice sweetness to them but the Raspberry Bars have a nice tartness, so it all depends on your preference. Feel free to try a different kind of fruit with this recipe and let us know how it turns out in the comments below!
