For the Base & Crumble Topping

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg yolk
Plus:

For the Blueberry Layer
  • 2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons, freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons corn-starch
Instructions
  1. Turn on the oven and heat to 350F degrees.
  2. Line an 8x8 baking pan with aluminum foil and grease with a little butter.
  3. In a bowl, mix together flour, oatmeal, white sugar, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and sea salt.

  5. Remove 1 cup of the mixture and put to one side.

  8. To the reserved oatmeal mix, stir in the 1 tablespoon of brown sugar.
  9. Crumble the mixture over top of the blueberry layer.
  10. Bake in the oven for about 40-45 minutes, until you can see the blueberries bubbling away nicely and the top crumble has turned a golden brown.

Notes
Do not use not quick oats or instant oats in this recipe, as I found out to my cost, they don’t work.
If you end up using frozen blueberries to make this bar, you will need to add 10 to 15 minutes to the cooking time.
Bars are easiest to cut when they're cold.
Cut into squares or fingers, using a sharp knife.
