Equipment

  • baking pan
  • sauce pan

Ingredients
  

Crust Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 ½ cup oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • dash of salt

Filling Ingredients

  • 2 cups blueberries I used frozen
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • cup coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoon cornstarch

Instructions
 

  • Start by making the crust. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, oats, baking powder, maple, oil, vanilla, and salt. Mix them well.
  • Line the bottom of a 9 x 9 inch baking dish with parchment paper and grease it lightly with some coconut oil.
  • Then add the crust to the pan, but save about ½ cup of the mixture for the top layer.
  • Use a spatula or your fingers to pat down the crust until you have a tightly packed, even layer.
  • Now it's time to make your filling. To a pan, add the blueberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, coconut sugar, and vanilla.
  • Cook them over medium heat and use a potato masher to mash up the blueberries as best as you can. It doesn't have to be perfect but just enough to that they release their juices.
  • Cook the blueberry mixture for 3-4 minutes, then add in the cornstarch. Stir everything together for another minute, then remove from heat.
  • Pour the blueberry filling on top of the layer of crust. Use a spatula to make sure it's even.
  • Crumble the remaining ½ cup of crust on top of the blueberries.
  • Bake the bars for 30-35 minutes at 400*F.
  • Remove from the oven and give the bars plenty of time to cool so that the blueberry filling can set.
  • I sliced mine into smaller squares and made 16 bars with this recipe. Store it in the fridge for 5-6 days💙
