    Wondering if substituting Splenda for the sugar could help cut down on the calories and instead of butter, maybe a low fat spread such as "I can't Believe it's not butter"? Just a thought - something I may have to try. - 10/27/09

    It's very healthy as blue berries contain a lot of antioxidants, but I would not eat it (now) as it has too many calories. But as a spoil it's brilliant and the soul needs some sinful food ever so often. So eat it people, spoil your selves, just not too often:) - 10/27/09

    Way too unhealthy! Just because something has blueberries in it doesn't make it worth making. I have a recipe for low fat blueberry/oat bars that only have 117 calories each that is delicious. I will make that instead. Boo spark people for giving recipes of such things that we should not eat. - 10/27/09

    Very good but waaaay too high in fat & sugar. I think a rolled oat topping with less margerine & splenda would be good or a corn bread dropped onto the berries would make a better low fat/high fibre option. - 10/27/09

    It's good, but not something I would indulge in often--too high in calories and sugar for me... tasty nonetheless. Mom made it and I had a few bites. - 3/18/07
