Do you love blueberries? Do you love lemon? Do you love bars? If so, you'll love these things. Heck, even if you don't particularly like blueberries/lemon/bars you'll still probably like these. They are THAT good. I can take zero credit for this recipe, it comes from the lovely Erica at Fashion Meets Food, and you can find the original recipe here.
Trader Joe's had a huge carton of blueberries that looked too good to pass up- and when I got home with them I instantly started searching for recipes to use them in. I had every single other ingredient already at home so I started baking right away!
For Erica's recipe you'll need:
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (NOT instant oats!)
1 1/3 cups packed light brown sugar (plus a little extra for sprinkling on top)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 large egg, separated
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
zest of one lemon
2 1/2 cups room-temperature blueberries
9 x 13 baking dish coated with either shortening or non-stick spray
Step 2: Mix together your flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and sugar:
Totally worth it.
I highly recommend these bars-super comforting and a great mix of sweet and tart!
