Chocolate Blueberry Crumble Bars

Chocolate Blueberry Crumble Bars

That’s right, blueberries AND chocolate come together to make these portable bars that much better!

I used a basic oat dough to get these babies started- just oats, sugar, vegan butter and some flavor (vanilla extract, salt, and cinnamon)- then added the fun stuff… chocolate and blueberries!

Bars like these are my favorite because you get all the flavor of the classic dish but in a convenient on-the-go bar. These are perfect for taking with you to work, travel or even to the carpool line (hi, mom life).

If you decide chocolate and blueberries aren’t really your thing…

well, we can’t be friends.

Just kidding!! We can still be friends. In fact, when I first tested these bars I had a full 1/2 cup of chocolate in them and decided they weren’t my thing. I wanted more bluebs than chocolate! I cut it down to 1/4 cup and added a little bit of sugar to compensate.

Voila! The perfect bar.

All that to say that you could really ditch the chocolate all together and add an addition 1/4 cup of sugar to make all things be right in your world.

On the down low, I definitely did do exactly that on my third batch and they were a walk down memory lane of delicious. BUT ignore what I just said and try it with chocolate because I promise, it will rock your tastebuds!

Ingredients

  • 2 cup Frozen Blueberries
  • 1 tbsp Tapioca Starch / alt. use corn starch
  • 2 cups Oat Flour
  • 1 cup Oats
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 8oz package Miyoko’s Vegan Butter cold and diced
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Dairy-Free Chocolate Chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 baking dish and set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, add the blueberries and starch. Toss and set aside.

  3. In a food processor, add the oat flour, sugar and diced butter. Pulse until a dough starts to form- about 4-5 pulses.

  4. Add the oats, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon in the processor. Pulse until fully combined- another 5-6 pulses.

  5. Pour 2/3 of the dough into your greased 8×8 baking dish. Grease your hands (you’ll thank me) before pressing the dough down to form an even layer.

  6. Pour the blueberries on top and lightly press down to incorporate them into the dough.

  7. Add the rest of the dough on top (greasing your hands again!) and press it down as well. Sprinkle on the chocolate chips to finish.

  8. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until the blueberries are nice and bubbly.

  9. Let it cool completely before cutting the bars into 12 squares.
