Blueberry-Lemon Oatmeal Bars

We made these bars recently and they were very tasty.  I thought I would share the recipe with you today if you’re looking for something springy, sweet, and delicious to make for breakfast this weekend.

Blueberry-Lemon Oatmeal Bars

1 C all-purpose flour (we used whole wheat flour)
1 C quick-cooking oats
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/4 Tsp salt
1/4 Tsp baking soda
1/4 Tsp ground cinnamon
6 Tbs butter, melted
3 Tbs lemon juice
Cooking Spray

1-1/3 C dried blueberries (6 ounces)
3/4 C sour cream
1/2 C granulated sugar
2 Tbs all-purpose flour
1 Tsp vanilla extract
1 Tsp lemon zest
1 large egg white, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 325o F.

To prepare crust, weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife.  Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, baking soda and cinnamon in a medium bowl, stirring well to combine.  Drizzle butter and juice over flour mixture, stirring until moistened (mixture will be crumbly).  Reserve 1/2 cup oat mixture.  Press remaining oat mixture into the bottom of an 11 x 7 baking pan coated with cooking spray.

Prepare filling by combining blueberries, sour cream, granulated sugar, flour, vanilla, lemon zest and egg white in a medium bowl, stirring well.  Spread blueberry mixture over prepared crust; sprinkle reserved oat mixture evenly over filling.

Bake for 40 minutes or until edges are golden.  Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
