Blueberry Crumb Bars
Adapted from AllRecipes
My theory is — if you add blueberries to a recipe, you make it healthy!!! It doesn’t really matter how much sugar or flour you use, since blueberries are a Super Food and rich in antioxidants. At least that’s my theory and you cannot convince me otherwise. Therefore, since our family loves blueberries, I love all recipes with blueberries. This one is so easy to make, even if you are “dough challenged” like me.
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup (2 sticks)cold unsalted butter cut into cubes
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- zest and juice of one lemon
- 4 cups fresh blueberries
- ½ cup white sugar
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 13×9 inch baking dish.
In medium bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, flour and baking powder.
Mix in salt and lemon zest.
With pastry cutter, blend in butter and flour until crumbly
Press half of dough into prepared plan.
In a separate bowl, stir sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice together until well combined.
Gently fold in blueberries.
Sprinkle blueberries over crust.
Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until top is slightly brown.
Cool completely. Refrigerate for a bit before cutting into squares.
These are much better from the fridge than at room temperature.
