For a bite of pure bliss, sink your teeth into delicious blueberry streusel bars. Layers of crumbly streusel and sweet blueberry filling add up to a scrumptious bar cookie. The steps are incredibly simple, making it an easy-enough bake to get your kids involved.
Quick blue berry bars
The secret to this recipe is to use frozen, unthawed fruits otherwise the bottom of the bars may become soggy. I also added a few crumbled digestive biscuits to the bottom layer to get a nice, perfectly baked crust.
You can season the dough with a dash of cinnamon, vanilla extract or lemon zest, but I prefer the warm and rich taste of pure butter streusel. Irena and I love to pick blueberry and winberries in July and August, and we freeze batch after batch to enjoy them throughout autumn and winter.
So, every time I bake these blueberry streusel bars we’re reminded of summer and the wonderful time we had harvesting the berries. Enjoy!
