Tips

  • Feel free to substitute the rolled oats for a different kind of healthy whole grain like steel-cut oats or quinoa.
  • Instead of lining the pan with parchment paper, you can also use a non-stick baking spray. I don’t recommend using cooking spray only baking spray.
  • Bake until your topping is golden brown.

Substitutions and Additions

  • Feel free to swap out the butter with coconut oil if desired in these Blueberry Oat Bars.
  • You can use whatever fruit jam or pie filling you prefer. Try raspberry, cherry, pineapple, apricot preserves… The list goes on!
  • You are welcome to get creative with these blueberry oatmeal bars by adding other toppings like chopped walnuts or almonds to the crust.
