Blueberry Streusel Bars



I've been using the blueberries that I picked in July and froze.  Each year we go blueberry picking and the organic blueberrries are so delicious and I freeze some to use during the winter.

Each year, they give us a sheet of recipes, and I think I am up to Volume 6. Tried and  tested recipes from the blueberry pickers. The blueberry streusel bars is my very favorite although they have all been very good. 

Blueberry Streusel Bars
=======================
2 c. rolled oats
1 c. flour
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. butter melted
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3/4 c. water
2 c. blueberries
1/2 c. white sugar
2 TB. lemon juice
.
In a large bowl, combine oats, flour and brown sugar. Stir in butter, 
blend until crumbly. Reserve 1 cup mixture for topping. Press remainder 
into bottom of an ungreased
9 x 13 pan. Set aside. 

In a large saucepan, blend cornstarch and water until smooth. 

Stir in berries, white sugar and lemon juice. Cook and stir over low heat until thick. Pour over prepared crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.

Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 35-40 minutes. Remove to wire rack. Cool. Cut into bars.

Thanks for stopping by! I am joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.

  3. My husband LOVES blueberries and would enjoy these bars!! He planted blueberry bushes and they did well the first year, the last two years the bushes were almost bare…so I imagine this year we will be picking them at the local farm!

    Hi Debbie! Thanks so much for coming by . . . your comment brought me back to your lovely site.
    I make a very similar bar with blackberries and raspberries. I call 'em crumble bars :0)
    A recipe like your streusel bars is great, especially during the Summer months with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
    Thanks for sharing!
    Have a great week,
    Suzanne

  15. I wish we had some good blueberry picking around here! I have to buy frozen, wild blueberries and they are expensive!! What a delightful way to use them - although my favorite will always be your lemon berry mascarpone cake :)
