Blueberry Crumb Bars are a delicious layer of blueberries sandwiched between sugar and butter!
Blueberry season has come to an end here in Oregon but I’m not tired of blueberry recipes yet!
I love berry pies – all kinds.
Just like the Marionberry Bars I posted a few years ago, these Blueberry Crumb Bars are almost like eating a berry pie – just in the form of a bar! And if you haven’t tried the Marionberry Bars you are definitely going to want to do that!! They are so good. If you don’t have access to marionberries just use blackberries.
The berries are sandwiched between two yummy layers of sugar and butter – yum!
This week I volunteered to help one of the boy scouts at church. He is having a bake sale to raise money for his project. These blueberry crumb bars would be perfect for a bake sale!
They cut nicely and will wrap up individually just great!
