I love blueberries.  They are so yummy.  I have been buying them and freezing them every chance I get.  I found this recipe and knew I had to try them so I did.  The original recipe is from here, but I will post it for you now.

Blueberry Breakfast Bars

(12 servings)
**Base and Topping**

  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked oats
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine — melted
  • **Filling**
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries — rinsed and drained (*I used frozen)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8″ square baking pan with foil, letting ends extend above pan on 2 sides.

In a large bowl, mix oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Add melted butter and stir with a fork until evenly moistened (mixture will be crumbly). Reserve 1/2 cup crumb mixture for topping. Press remaining mixture evenly and firmly over bottom of ungreased, foil-lined pan.
