Ingredients You Need

Prepare the pan: First, preheat the oven to 350F/176C, and line an 8×8-inch baking dish with parchment paper and cooking spray.


Combine crusts’ dry ingredients: In bowl, add oats, flour, sugar (if using maple syrup, add that with liquids), baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.


Add wet ingredients: Add egg, coconut oil, maple syrup (if using) and applesauce.


Mix: With spatula, changing to  hands towards the end until everything is incorporated. The dough should be moist in one piece, not crumbly.


Prepare blueberry crumble filling: In medium bowl, combine blueberries, maple syrup (or sugar), orange zest, vanilla, cornstarch, and mix.


Assemble bars: Press ¾ of crust dough into prepared baking dish (press tightly to compact it into a nice ‘cookie’-like layer).


Assemble bars: Spread blueberry filling over top before crumbling remaining crust dough over top in small crumbs.


Bake the blueberry crumble bars: Bake for 45 minutes, then remove from the oven and cool completely before slicing into 16 squares.



Store in a cool dry place for up to 3 days, refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Freeze: In an airtight container for up to 3 months.
