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.
