Better-for-You Tip: Here we substituted more than half of the flour with fiber-packed oats and replaced the butter with a bit of canola oil as a way to reduce the saturated fat. Plus canola oil contains the lowest level of saturated fatty acids of any vegetable oil. Top all that off with the fact that blueberries are consistently touted by many of the top research facilities as a way to aid in reducing the risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, and promoting digestive health. Ask your doctor or nutritionist if blueberries are good for you to add to your diet.
