These Blueberry Crumbs Bars are incredibly easy to make. You only need two bowls and a couple minutes to make these bars!

I use fresh blueberries and toss them with lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch. Sandwiched between the blueberry filling is the crumb topping. It goes on both the bottom and top of the bars. The crumb topping is by far the BEST part! Crunchy, buttery with the perfect amount of sweetness.

How to make Blueberry Crumb Bars

  • Start by making the crumb topping. In a medium bowl combine melted butter, flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Stir until the mixture resembles wet sand and is clumpy. Set aside 1 cup of the mixture.
  • Transfer the remaining mixture into the prepared pan and pat down with your fingers or the backside of a spoon, set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine blueberries, sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch. Toss to combine. Layer the blueberry mixture over the crust.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cup of crumb over the bars. Bake for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven for fresh blueberries or 50 minutes for frozen or until the center is set.
  • Allow the bars to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

Tips for making these bars

  • I like to make sure the bars cool completely before cutting into them. If not it will make a gooey mess. I like to pop them in the freezer for 30 minutes then slice them. It makes cutting them so much easier!
  • You can make this recipe with either fresh or frozen blueberries. Just keep in mind that frozen blueberries will take a little longer in the oven.
  • For an added crunch chopped pecans or walnuts can be added.
  • You can do a mix of blueberry and any other type of fruit you have on hand. Raspberries, blackberries, strawberries or peaches would all be great in this!
