Blackberry Breakfast Bars

Blackberries have always been a fond reminder of my summers in India, when we would cherish the mulberries that would appear for a short time and eat them for sheer delight and taste. The mulberries, light purple to blue, resemble the wild blackberries or dewberries found here in Texas. I’ve noticed plenty of blackberry bramble or thickets when driving down rural Texas roads and often been tempted to stop and pick the berries. They do appear on farmer’s tables at markets over the summer from time to time, but they are popular and go quickly.
Morning bars loaded with sweet blackberries are one of my favorite breakfast indulgences. Even after hibernating in the refrigerator for a few days, five minutes in the oven brings the freshness right back.
