Oats add crunch to the taste crust and crumbly topping of these fruity, blueberry oatmeal bars. I often bake them for church parties. —Deena Hubler, Jasper, Indiana

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup cold butter
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, 1 cup sugar and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 2 cups for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan; set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine blueberries, cornstarch, lemon juice and remaining sugar. Bring to a boil; boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Spread evenly over the crust. Sprinkle with the reserved crumb mixture. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
