Blueberry Oat Crumble Bars

 

The London lockdown has had me baking way more than usual – and I guess I’m not the only one, considering flour is very difficult to get by in recent weeks – and these Blueberry Oat Crumble Bars are probably one of my favourite baked creations of the recent weeks!

So simply to make, and I’ve only used simple ingredients that I’ve had to hand in my. kitchen. For a different recipe I had just bought a massive bowl of fresh blueberries, which needed to be used up – as my freezer was also full at the time – and this was just the perfect way to make use of them in a delicious way.

How to make Blueberry Oat Crumble Bars

These bars are created with 3 different parts: the base, the filling and the crumble on the top. Best start with the base, then head over to the filling and whilst that is on the stove, work on the crumble top.

Before you begin pre-heat your oven to 180C and line a 20x20cm baking tin with baking paper.

Making the base

  1. To prepare the base, add the rolled oats into a food processor and pulse for about 1 minute to lightly break them down. Add in the rest of the base ingredients and process until you get a sticky dough.
  2. Evenly press the base mix into the bottom of the baking tin.

Making the filling

  1. Meanwhile, heat the blueberries on the stove over medium heat, then add the maple syrup and stir. Cook until the majority of the blueberries have broken down (5 minutes) and then cook for a further 10 minutes on a low heat to reduce the liquid.
  2. Sprinkle in the cornflour and swiftly stir it through. Increase the heat to activate the cornflour and cook on high for about 1 minute, whilst constantly stirring, or until the blueberry mixture thickens. Spread the blueberry mix on top of your base.

Making the crumble

  1. Preparing the crumble top is simple: combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until you get sticky clusters. You can also use your hands to help combine these.
  2. Top your blueberry mix with the crumble as evenly as you can.

Once you have your baking tin assembled, place everything into middle of your pre-heated oven at 180C for 20-25 minutes or until golden and crunchy on top. For best results, let the tin cool down for a minimum of 20 minutes before removing/slicing & enjoy hot or cold!
