Ingredients

Ingredients for the Base

  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour
  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

Ingredients for the Blueberry Layer

  • 4 cups blueberries
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp lemon zest

Ingredients for the Crumb Topping

  • 1 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.
  • Melt 1 cup of butter or coconut oil. Let it cool, then divide it into a 3/4 cup portion for the base and a 1/4 cup portion for the crumb topping.
  • To make the base, combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. (Substitute white whole wheat flour for the gluten-free flour if you’re not gluten-free.)
  • Stir the base layer's wet ingredients together in a small bowl and then mix them into the dry ingredients.
  • Press the base layer mixture evenly into the pan.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the blueberries, maple syrup, and lemon zest. Place this blueberry mixture in an even layer on top of the base.
  • To make the crumb topping, stir together the ingredients. Add this crumb topping mixture on top of the blueberry layer.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the top is brown. Let it cool completely before cutting. If you’re serving these as part of a buffet, you can cut them quite small (24 pieces). Cut them into larger pieces for a stand-alone snack.
