Blueberry Oatmeal Crumble Bars

Ingredients

For the Base & Crumble Topping
  • 1 cúp all-púrpose floúr
  • 3/4 cúp old-fashioned oats , or large flake oats (not qúick oats or instant oats)
  • 1/2 cúp granúlated súgar
  • 1/4 cúp packed brown súgar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cúp únsalted bútter , melted
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown súgar
For the Blueberry Layer
  • 2 cúp blúeberries , fresh or frozen - see baking time adjústment if úsing frozen
  • 2 tablespoons lemon júice , freshly sqúeezed (úse 1 tablespoon if úsing frozen berries)
  • 1/4 cúp granúlated súgar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line an 8x8 baking pan with alúminiúm foil and grease with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a mediúm bowl whisk together the floúr, oatmeal, granúlated súgar, 1/4 cúp brown súgar, cinnamon, and salt. Gently stir in the melted bútter & egg yolk.
  3. Remove 1 cúp of the mixtúre.
  4. Press the remaining mixtúre into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  5. In a mediúm bowl mix together all the ingredients for the blúeberry layer. Spoon over top of the base oatmeal cookie mixtúre in the pan.
  6. To the reserved 1 cúp of oatmeal mixtúre, stir in the 1 additional tablespoon of brown súgar. Crúmble the mixtúre over top of the blúeberry layer. I like to form big crúmbles by sqúeezing it in my fist.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for aboút 40-45 minútes or úntil yoú see the blúeberries búbbling and the top crúmble túrning golden brown. If yoú úsed frozen berries, the bake time will be 50-55 minútes.
  8. Allow to cool fúlly to room temperatúre (at least 3 hoúrs) before cútting into the bars. Bars are easiest to cút when they're cold úsing a sharp knife.
