Oatmeal Blueberry Squares
- 1 1/2 c flour
- 1 1/2 c old fashion oatmeal
- 3/4 c brown sugar
- 1/2 t. baking powder
- 1/4 t. salt
- 1/8 t. cinnamon
- 1 c unsalted butter,in chunks
- 3 c blueberries
- 3/4 c sugar
- 2-3 t. cornstarch
- 1 t. lemon juice or apple syrup
Put the flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a food processor and pulse to blend, about 20 seconds. Add the butter and pulse to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until you have a crumbly mass - not dry but not sticking altogether. Toss the berries in a bowl with the sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice.
Spread or pat half of oatmeal mixture into pan. Spread on berries and sugar/cornstarch mixture. Top, as evenly as you can, with remaining oatmeal mixture and press slightly. Chill 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake 30-40 minutes until fruit starts to bubble. Cool in pan very well before cutting or refrigerate 2-3 hours before cutting
