Blueberry Crumb Bars Recipe


Blueberry crumb bars are an excellent way to use up fresh blueberries. One thing that I enjoy about this recipe is that it is fairly easy to make.  The process is very simple, a dough mixture is placed into the bottom of a baking pan, topped with fresh blueberries and the remaining dough mixture is then crumbled on top. These bake for about 45 minutes and you will be enjoying them in no time.

Ingredients:
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup butter
1 egg
¼ teaspoon salt
1 pinch ground cinnamon
4 cups fresh blueberries
½ cup white sugar
3 teaspoons cornstarch

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish. In a medium bowl stir together 1 cup sugar, 3 cups flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Using a fork blend in the butter and egg until the dough is crumbly. Pat half the dough into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
Step 2: In a separate bowl stir together sugar and cornstarch. Gently mix in the fresh blueberries. Sprinkle the blueberries evenly over the crust in the baking dish. Crumble the remaining dough over the blueberry layer.
Step 3: Place into the oven and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until the top is slightly brown. Remove from the oven and cool completely before cutting into squares.

    These look simply delish ! I love the creamy glaze over top. I wish I could grab one right out of the screen !

    Thanks for all the recipes. I have tried several, and have filed many to ‘try’ soon.

    Bobby, What did you do for the glaze on top of the blueberry bars? I have followed your blog for awhile now. I love your recipes. Thank you for sharing and keep them coming!

    Ashlee Frisbey – Thanks for the compliments! I just whisked together confectioners sugar with a little milk and lemon juice.

    These look delightful, so full of juicy blueberries im sure they are dangerously addictive! The fact there is so much fruit in there basically means they are a health food and count as 1 of your 5 a day though…so this is fine :)

    Would love to give these a go, thanks for the lovely recipe!

    Just made these yesterday. They are delicious but i wish the cookie part was a little crunchier. Will be using less butter next time :)

    Do you think these would work with frozen blueberries?

  11. Bobby — September 26, 2011 @ 12:01 pm

    Diana- Yes, frozen blueberries will work.

    Can I use frozen blueberries? Would it still be 4 cups? would I need to adjust any other ingredients?

    They look yummy. Going to try them today.
    I see you lined the pan with foil? Is that preferred over parchment paper?

      You can use whatever you would prefer. I have always used foil, it is just a personal preference.
