Ingredients and Nutritional Benefits

Ingredients List

  • Fresh Blueberries: Packed with antioxidants and Vitamin C.
  • Whole Grain Oats: A great source of fiber, supporting heart and digestive health.
  • Whole Wheat Flour: Rich in nutrients compared to refined flour.
  • Honey or Maple Syrup: A natural sweetener alternative to refined sugar.
  • Coconut Oil: A healthier fat option that adds a subtle flavor.
  • Ground Cinnamon: Adds warmth and depth to the flavor profile.

Nutritional Highlights

Our Blueberry Oatmeal Bars are not just delicious; they’re also loaded with nutritional benefits. Blueberries are renowned for their high antioxidant content, oats provide essential fiber, and using natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup lowers the processed sugar content, making these bars a guilt-free pleasure.

Step-by-Step Cooking Instructions

Preparing the Oatmeal Base and Crumble

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Mix dry ingredients: Combine whole grain oats, whole wheat flour, baking powder, and ground cinnamon in a large bowl.
  3. Add wet ingredients: Incorporate melted coconut oil and honey or maple syrup into the dry mixture until well combined.
  4. Press the mixture: Firmly press two-thirds of the oat mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan, forming the base layer.

Creating the Blueberry Layer

  1. Mix blueberries with a bit of flour and honey or maple syrup to coat them evenly. This prevents them from sinking to the bottom.
  2. Spread the blueberry mixture evenly over the oatmeal base.

Adding the Crumble Topping

  1. Crumble the remaining oat mixture over the blueberry layer.
  2. Gently press the crumble into the blueberry layer.


  1. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
  2. Cool in the pan on a wire rack before cutting into bars.

Serving and Storage Tips

  • Serve these bars as a breakfast on-the-go, a mid-day snack, or a healthy dessert.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or refrigerate to extend freshness.

Customization Options

  • Fruit Variations: Swap blueberries with raspberries, blackberries, or a mix for a different flavor profile.
  • Nut Add-ins: Stir in chopped almonds, walnuts, or pecans into the oat mixture for added crunch and nutrition.
  • Vegan Adaptations: Use maple syrup instead of honey and ensure your coconut oil is ethically sourced.

Why Our Blueberry Oatmeal Bars Stand Out

Our recipe is designed with both taste and health in mind, using whole, unrefined ingredients to maximize nutritional value without compromising on flavor. The balance of juicy blueberries, fibrous oats, and natural sweeteners creates a bar that’s satisfying and wholesome.

Recipe Tips

  1. 1. Perfectly Moist Bars: To ensure your Blueberry Oatmeal Bars come out perfectly moist, avoid overbaking. Monitor the bars closely towards the end of the baking time, looking for that golden-brown top. Allowing them to cool in the pan helps them set without drying out.
  2. 2. Enhance Flavor with Zest: Adding the zest of a lemon or orange to the blueberry mixture can significantly enhance the overall flavor of the bars. The citrus zest introduces a refreshing and aromatic contrast to the sweetness of the bars, making them even more irresistible.
  3. 3. Gluten-Free Adaptation: For those needing or preferring a gluten-free option, easily adapt this recipe by substituting the whole wheat flour with your choice of gluten-free all-purpose flour. Also, ensure your oats are certified gluten-free to avoid any cross-contamination. This simple adjustment allows everyone to enjoy these delightful blueberry oatmeal bars without concern.

Blueberry Sauce

  • 3 cups fresh blueberries divided
  • 2 tablespoons or granulated sugar or a sugar free alternative like Swerve
  • 1/2 cup water plus 1 tablespoon
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch

Oatmeal Bars

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract divided


For the Blueberry Sauce Filling:

  • Put two cups of blueberries, water, and sweetener in a small saucepan. After bringing the ingredients to a boil, turn down the heat to medium. Simmer until the blueberries start to get tender.
  • Combine 1 tablespoon water and cornstarch in a different, small bowl. Add this mixture to the sauce with blueberries. Cook it for a little longer until the sauce thickens.
  • After that, turn off the heat and mix in one teaspoon of vanilla essence in the saucepan. Before using, let the blueberry sauce cool.

For the Oatmeal Bars Base and Topping:

  • First, line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Transfer the flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt to a medium-sized mixing basin and whisk to blend.
  • Using a larger dish, thoroughly mix the egg, butter, maple syrup, and vanilla essence.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients and stir until a cohesive dough is formed. Half of this dough should be reserved for the topping.
  • To create a solid crust, press the remaining dough into the bottom of the pan that has been prepared.
  • Cover this crust with 1 cup of the blueberry sauce you made previously, then top with 1 cup of fresh blueberries.
  • Scatter the reserved dough on top of the blueberry layer.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown, in a preheated oven.
  • Let it cool completely before slicing into 12 equal squares to serve.


**Chef’s Note:** For an extra zest in your Blueberry Oatmeal Bars, consider sprinkling a pinch of lemon zest over the blueberry sauce before adding it to the base. This subtle addition brings a refreshing contrast to the sweetness of the blueberries and the heartiness of the oatmeal.
