Ingredients

Oatmeal Crumb Layer

  • 1.5 cups Butter
  • 3 cups Rolled Oats
  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Blueberry Filling

  • 2 cups Blueberries
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice

Instructions

Oatmeal Crumb Layer

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, melt butter. Add remaining crumb ingredients to melted butter. Stir well until completely combined.
  • Press about 2/3 crumb mixture into the bottom of a 13x9 pan. Press down well. Bake for 10 minutes.

Blueberry Filling

  • In a medium saucepan, add all ingredients for the blueberry filling. Bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the mixture has thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Spread filling over baked crust. Sprinkle reserved crumbs over filling.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes until the crust just begins to turn a light, golden brown. Remove from oven and cool.

Notes

I usually place the cooled bars in the fridge for a couple hours to help them set faster.
Rolled oats work best for this recipe, but I've also used instant oats if that's all I have on-hand.
These can be stored at room temperature or in the fridge. I prefer to eat them chilled from the fridge!
