Summer is in full force here. It is my favorite season for fruits! All the berries, peaches are so sweet and juicy. Expect lots of fruity recipes coming your way!

Anyway, blueberry is probably my favorite fruit (sorry avocado, I don’t treat you like a fruit).

Since my Peanut Butter Crumble bars was such a hit, I have been meaning to give this recipe a blueberry & almond butter tweak.

1. Dessert for Breakfast and On the Go

Instead of butter, I used my favorite almond butter. It gives the oatmeal bars an amazing nutty and buttery taste.

Moreover, I used maple syrup to sweeten the oatmeal bars. So there is no conventional sugar in this recipe.

2. Perfect Light Snack and Dessert

The layer of juicy blueberry filling in this crumble bar recipe is made with frozen blueberries, maple syrup and chia seeds.

It is sweet, tart and juicy.

You can also use your favorite store bought blueberry jam for this recipe as well.

3. Easy to make

Made with only a handful of simple accessible ingredients, these blueberry oatmeal bars are easy to come together.

For example, the oat crust on the bottle and the oat crumble on top come from one single dough. So you don’t have to make two separate batch.

One Bowl is all you need.

No food processor is required.
