"Oats add crunch to the tasty crust and crumbly topping of these fruity bars from Deena Hubler of Jasper, Indiana. 'I often bake them for church parties,' she informs. Men expecially love them."


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup cold butter
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, oats, 1 cup sugar and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 2 cups for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan; set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, combine blueberries, cornstarch, lemon juice and remaining sugar. Bring to a boil; boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Spread evenly over the crust. Sprinkle with the reserved crumb mixture. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool before cutting.
