BLUEBERRY OATMEAL CRUMBLE BARS

Blueberry Oatmeal Bars

The healthy Blueberry Oatmeal Crumble Bar recipe below is perfect because it requires no knives - with blueberries there's never a need for chopping, dicing or peeling. Children can easily pile the fresh blueberries, crunchy oats and other ingredients into measuring cups. Just be sure to have extra blueberries for nibbling while you and the kids get cooking.
Makes 9 - 2x2 inch squares.

Ingredients

    For berry filling
    · 3 cups fresh blueberries
    · 1/2 cup sugar
    · 2 tablespoons orange juice
    · 1 tablespoon cornstarch

    · 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
    · 3/4 cup flour
    · 3/4 cup brown sugar packed
    · 1½  teaspoons grated orange zest
    · 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    · 1/4 teaspoon salt
    · 1 stick sweet butter, melted
     

Directions

Line a 9 inch square pan with parchment paper
