Dehydrated blueberries are pretty pricey at the store. I figured I'd give them a try. Some things dehydrate well- apples, pineapple and bananas. Blueberries, well, lets just say it had its challenges. In the end it was worth it though. I tucked most of it away for winter time munching and baking but saved a few to add to these bars. The bars were sensational. I love the flax taste and the chewiness that the coconut adds.
