Blueberry Crumb Bars

Really? Need I say more than this picture? My favorite blueberry treat (other than just plain, fresh blueberries) are these bars. They're a hit with the family too. :) Curtis thinks they're pretty good for breakfast or a mid-morning snack.

Blueberry Crumb Bars

1 c white sugar
1 t baking powder
2 c flour
1 c rolled oats
1 c butter
1 egg
1/4 t salt (optional)
1/2 t cinnamon
4 c fresh blueberries
1/2 c white sugar
3 t cornstarch

Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.

In a medium bowl, stir together 1 c sugar, flour, oats, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix in salt, if desired. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the butter and egg. Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of dough into prepared pan.

In a separate bowl, gently mix together blueberries, 1/2 c sugar, and cornstarch. Sprinkle the blueberry mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble the remaining dough over the berry layer.

Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
