These wonderful Wild Blueberry Bars offer yet one more way to enjoy these special berries and get them into your family’s tummies. These little gems hold such incredible healing benefits while at the same time lending their deep, delicious natural flavor. Bars, when made ahead, make for an easy snack option to pack into lunchboxes or to offer for quick snacks on busy days.
Wild berries pack an anti-aging, disease-fighting, life-giving punch. And wild blueberries are in a league of their own. Whenever possible, choose frozen wild blueberries instead of clamshells of fresh, cultivated blueberries. Make it part of your habit, after shopping in the produce section of the market, to swing by the frozen food aisle, where bags of wild blueberries are readily available. You’ll be providing your body with the greatest chance of recovery and healing.
Wild Blueberry Bars
For the filling:
For the base and topping:
Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
To make the filling, place a small pot over medium-high heat. Add the wild blueberries, raw honey or maple syrup, lemon juice, arrowroot, and vanilla extract or powder. Stir until evenly mixed. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until thick and bubbly, about 2-3 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
To make the base and topping, combine the oat flour, oats, coconut sugar and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Pour in the melted coconut oil and stir until the dough clumps together. Place 2 cups of the mixture into the prepared pan and set aside the rest. Press the mixture evenly to the base of the pan using your fingers or a flat-bottomed glass.
Pour the blueberry filling on top of the base and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the rest of the crumb mixture over the filling. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the filling is bubbly and the top golden. Remove from oven and cool completely before slicing into bars.
