Blueberry Oat Bars

9 Oct

This wonderful recipe will bring all of the flavor and punch of Mom’s blueberry pie but packed into a square of goodness. A relatively simple recipe that uses fresh delicious blueberries, buttery flaky crust, and a amazingly sweet crumbly top. They can be made ahead of time and cooled or served warm with a scoop of ice cream for a decadent desert.

Heres what you need:
For the crust:
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks or 8 ounces)
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
For the filling:
Zest and juice of one lemon
5 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup raw sugar
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1 cup rolled oats
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F) and grease a 9X13 in pan.
2. In a bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix together before adding egg and butter. Mix with your hands but be sure not to break the butter apart too much. The chunks of butter will make for a more flaky crust.
3. In another bowl mixed the blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice+zest. Very gently fold all this together being careful not to squish the blueberries.
4. Pat half of the dough down in the bottom of the pan, cover with the blueberry mixture and sprinkle rolled oats over. Crumble the remaining dough on top and sprinkle the top with brown sugar
5. Bake for 1 hour or until the top gets a nice caramelized brown color. Cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting and serving.
