Blueberry Oat Dessert

Ive' been preparing these blueberry squares for more than 10 years now, and everyone looks forward to them. The recipe looks time-consuming, but it's not difficult at all. -Mary Arkoetty of Huntington, Massachusetts

    Great recipe! It was so yummy. I would of gave it a 5 star but it was hard to spread the bottom layer on the pan. Just the right amount of blueberry and sweetness. 4 1/2 star
