I have been experimenting some dessert recipes for July 4th and trying various natural and healthy color combinations to suit the wonderful occasion. Keeping health and the National day holiday in mind I finally came up with Cherry Oats Squares with Macadamia Nut Icing and Blueberry Sauce.
The name of the recipe might sound a little long but trust me it’s a very simple yet delicious dessert with lots of health with which you will never go wrong. I know the usual july 4th recipes have the combination of strawberries and blueberries and the usual white cake but as per the theme of my blog and my passion for being creative along with keeping health in mind I decided to play around with cherries and oats and baked them.
Simple isn’t it?
Since I chose my dessert to be vegan and low fat or you can say I wanted to add healthy fat and keep it low in calories I chose macadamia nuts for the icing. MMMMM. I couldn’t believe that macadamia icing tasted so much better than the regular icing. It was the most delicious icing I have ever had. It was super easy to make and in fact I made three batches of just the icing. One for me of course, one for this recipe and one separate batch for my toddler. We happily licked the icing all day. 🙂
Now comes the blueberry sauce, I know it’s everyone’s favorite and the most desired and that’s the reason I decided to finish this dessert with blueberry sauce. This isn’t a traditional blueberry sauce since I prefer quick recipes so with only three ingredients I cooked the blueberry sauce within minutes.
I was super excited for the presentation part of this dessert 🙂 . But I kept it very simple by spreading the macadamia nut icing with the help of the butter knife on the baked cherry oats and poured the blueberry sauce evenly over the baked square. Then, I gently cut into square pieces and served.
Cherry Oats Squares with Macadamia Nut Icing and Blueberry Sauce will definitely bring a smile on your face and make your celebrations even more exciting. 🙂
