I looked for awhile to find a blueberry recipe that could be gluten-free. I used almond meal instead of flour, and they taste great! Almond meal has some oils in it, so I omitted the egg and the apple juice. (& added a bit of cornstarch to the berries) Worked very well! Personally I would call it Blueberry Crumble, not Blueberry Bars.
These are tasty little breakfast bars, but I have to agree that the topping was a bit crumbly. It's worth monkeying around with the recipe to get the topping to hold together a bit more.
I am so excited to have found this recipe again! I lost it right after I made them this summer. Thsese bars are DELICIOUS! They are pretty much exactly like the starbucks blueberry oatmeal bars. All my friends and family love them. I made up a bunch and put in the freezer this last summer and they really freeze well. Will become a life long family recipe for us. LOVE THEM! Oh, I used whole wheat pastry flour...not problems with them being crumbly or falling apart.
Loved the flavor of these! I will make again, but the only problem is they are very crumbly, hard to hold them to eat without them falling apart.
