Yummy Snack~~Blueberry Oatmeal Bars

I made these bars this morning as a snack for the kids.  They were pretty easy to make, and they taste very yummy.  It probably helped that they were slightly warm yet when we ate them, but I will definately be making these again.  Here's the recipe....

1 1/2 cups flour (I used whole wheat)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups uncooked old-fashioned oats
1 pint (2 cups) fresh blueberries (I used frozen, turned out fine!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly spray 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt until well mixed.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat together the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter until fluffy.  Beat in the oil, eggs, and vanilla.  With a woodedn spoon, mix in the flour mixture until blended.  Stir in the oats and blueberries.

Use a spatula to spread the batter evenly in the pan.

Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.  Cool completely.  Cut into 24 bars.
