Blueberry Pie Bars



    • Preheat the oven to 180°C (or 160°C fan-assisted).
    • Line a 20x20cm pan with parchment paper and generously spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
    • To make a flour, blitz 135g of the 4 Grain Porridge Oats in a food processor until fine.
    • In a large bowl, use a fork to mix together the oat flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Add in melted butter, vanilla extract and almond extract and stir until a nice crumble forms and dough begins to clump together.
    • Place half of the mixture into the prepared pan and place the remaining mixture into the fridge (the remaining mixture will be used for the topping).
    • Use your hands to evenly press the dough to the bottom of the pan.
    • Next make your blueberry pie filling: place a medium pot over medium heat. Add in blueberries, maple syrup, almond extract, cornflour and salt. Use a wooden spoon to press down and break down the blueberries a bit.
    • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook for 3-5 more minutes until mixture is thickened and nicely coats the back of a spoon.
    • Pour mixture over the crust and use a spoon to evenly spread.
    • Take the remaining topping out of the fridge. By now there should be some nice crumbles that have clumped together. Sprinkle the topping over the blueberry filling.
    • Bake for 30 minutes or until filling is bubbly and the topping is golden.
    • Allow bars to cool completely on a wire rack before transferring to the fridge to chill.
    • Bars are perfect served at room temperature or straight out of the fridge.
    • Use a sharp knife to cut into 16 bars before serving
