Frozen Wild Blueberries are one of my favorite items to buy at my local grocery store. Not only do I use Frozen Wild Blueberries every week, but I use them in sweet AND savory dishes. This month's Recipe Redux was sponsored by Wild Blueberries looking for some delicious sweet and savory holiday dishes!

Since I am all about the holidays, I got in tune with my Finnish side and am proud to share a delicious and not too sweet roll recipe made with Frozen Wild Blueberries. 

They are a perfect treat in the morning with a hot cup of coffee.

DID YOU KNOW?! "Wild Blueberries have twice the antioxidant capacity of larger cultivated blueberries. A growing body of research shows the potential health benefits of Wild Blueberries including gut health, diabetes, cancer and brain health."
