Black and Blueberry Bars

Blueberry

 

The day after you get a tattoo you feel kinda beat up.

INGREDIENTS

Filling

  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Crust and Topping

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick melted butter

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Then line a 9-inch baking dish with parchment paper.

For filling, in a medium saucepan, stir together blueberries, granulated sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring often to reduce until mixture is thick and the berries break down, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, for crust and crumble, in a medium bowl, mix oats, flour, brown sugar, orange zest, baking soda, and salt. Add melted butter to blend well. Reserve 3/4 cup for topping.

Press remaining mixture firmly in bottom of pan to form crust. Spoon filling in an even layer. Sprinkle with remaining topping.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes. Cool before cutting.

I altered the original recipe.
