Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a 13x9-inch cake pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, mix together Bob’s Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, Rolled Oats, Coconut Sugar, salt and cinnamon. Add butter and mix with an electric mixer or pastry cutter until small clumps of dough form. Remove and reserve 2 cups of this mixture.
  3. Press the remaining oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared cake pan. Set aside.
  4. In a bowl, combine the blueberries, Bob’s Red Mill Coconut Sugar, cornstarch and lemon peel. Pour blueberry mixture over the top of the crust.
  5. Add sliced almonds to the reserved oat mixture and mix well. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the blueberries.
  6. Bake until the topping is golden-brown and the blueberries have begun to bubble, about 40 minutes. Let cool completely then cut into bars.

    I’m in the middle of assembling this and find it incredibly frustrating, from trying to spread something sticky onto parchment paper which slides against the 13×9 to finding there just isn’t enough mixture to spread out…the mixture is so thick and lumpy that it compresses but doesn’t spread. I have a mess on my hands and a 3 minutes spreading operation is turning into 20 minutes of frustration.

    Addendum: out of the oven and cooled, it remains incredibly sticky and can’t be cut; it’s floppy; like holding a slice of peanut butter. There was a lot of moisture in the berries that wasn’t removed in the recipe. I did drain and reserve about 3/4 cup of liquid from the berries, but there was still too much moisture. The result isn’t a bar, but rather a jam. We can’t use the result as a breakfast bar for road trips as hoped but will stir spoonfuls into plain yogurt. It’s delicious, though a bit too sweet.

      Did you use fresh blueberries or frozen? Frozen will have more moisture which is why you will want to use less blueberries if frozen was used.

      Hi Pam,
      Individuals who follow a vegetarian diet can eat butter and other dairy products like cheese and milk. However, butter is not considered vegan as those who follow a vegan diet avoid any animal derived products including butter.

      Butter isn’t meat. Vegetarians don’t eat meat, but they eat everything else. Vegans, are the ones that don’t eat any animal products or animal bi-products.

    Can Ghee be used instead of butter! Will that “cut into oats” the same as butter?? I’m new to not being able to eat dairy.

      Hi Cathy,
      We haven’t tried this recipe using Ghee, but it will likely change the texture of the topping as well as the flavor and color of the baked bars. Please let us know if you try this substitution, we’d love to hear your results!
