I love the taste of blueberries. I use them often in baked goods and as a topping for cereal.  Blueberries are low in calories and fat and a great source of vitamin C, fiber and manganese.

Normally, i use them fresh, but for today’s recipe, I’ll be folding in some dried blueberries – a new dried fruit that I just discovered.
