Blueberry Goodness!

What a rainy Sunday it is here in Fort Worth, actually it has been an entire rainy weekend, but it has been a fun one so that's good! I made these delicious Blueberry Oat Crumble Bars yesterday, some for a sweet friend who just had knee surgery and the rest for my brother and his touring band who had gigs here in TX the past few days. I can't tell y'all how nice it has been having my brother here, miss him SO much. ANYWHO back to the blueberry goodness, these are SO good. And once again I found this recipe from one of my all time favorite food blogs, How Sweet It Is, if y'all aren't following you neeeeeeeed to be NOW! They are perfect on their own, but would be even more amazing with a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Note to self next time I make these make SURE to have vanilla ice cream on hand!

Blueberry Oat Crumble Bars from How Sweet It Is

makes about 12 bars
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter + 2 tablespoons
1 cup blueberries
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, oats, cinnamon and salt and mix until combined. Melt the 1/2 cup of butter and add it, along with the vanilla, to the oat mixture. Stir until moistened. This may take a minute or two! Fold in the blueberries – it’s okay if they pop a little bit.
Butter and flour an 8×8 baking pan. Press batter into the pan. Melt remaining butter and drizzle it over the bars. Bake for 20 minutes, the let cool completely – this can take up to 45 minutes! (MAKE SURE TO DO THIS!) Cut and serve. Can be kept in the fridge or at room temperature in a sealed container.
