Blueberry Oat Bars Recipe

I was planning to make baked oatmeal for sign language class at my house this morning.  However, I ran out with the girls to run a quick errand and when I came back we saw this:

and this:

So in between making toast for the girls for breakfast, hiding all my dirty laundry in the bedroom, and putting away dishes, I threw together these blueberry oat bars.  I had already printed the recipe to try some time this week and it looked easy enough.  It turned out to be a big hit!

1 1/2 cups flour (I used soft white wheat.)
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup cold butter

Combine and cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Reserve 2 cups for topping; press remaining mixture into a greased 9x13 pan.

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
2 Tbs cornstarch
2 Tbs lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar

In a saucepan, bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Spread evenly over crust and sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.  Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool before cutting.  Store tightly covered and away from all chocolate labs.


  1. looks yummy :) my boys LOVE blueberries, we'll have to try this

  2. So is that look on her face "I'm so ashamed" or "I feel sick from eating too much sugar and wheat"?

  3. I think its "I'm in so much trouble my mom might not feed me for a whole week!" ;)

  4. Looks yummy! I made granola yesterday and ran out of oats :(

  5. Thanks for the recipe Christy! Can't wait to try it. I'll make sure to keep it away from my dog! :)

  6. he he... Your dog is too cute! But when you just leave something so tasty right there, who could resist?? But I'll certainly have to try the blueberry bars soon ;)
