This recipe combines two popular fruits - blueberries and apples-  into a delicious bar that can be used as a breakfast bar,  or a dessert.  The main spice for this recipe is the Apple Pie Spice Blend (that's right this blend is not just for making Apple Pies!) and it is a perfect complement to the apples, as well as the blueberries.  It is three layers that are - part a crumbly cookie, and part a juicy pie filling-  that combine together for a totally scrumptious treat.

 

Ingredients:

Bottom Layer -

2 cups old-fashioned oats

1 cup all-purpose  flour

1 cup (packed) light brown sugar

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 sticks butter, melted

1 tsp vanilla extract

Top Layer -

1 cup all-purpose  flour

1/2 cup (packed) light brown sugar

1 stick butter

Middle Layer -

2 cups fresh blueberries

3 large apples (such as Golden Delicious) peeled and chopped

3/4 cup sugar

3 Tblspns all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp True Cinnamon

2 tsp Apple Pie Spice Blend

 

Directions:

For the Bottom Layer- Heat oven to 425 degrees.  Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.  In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt.  Stir in the melted butter and vanilla.  Press this mixture  evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.

For the Middle Layer - Put the berries and the apples in a bowl and add the sugar, flour and spices.  Mix until combined. Spread the fruit mixture over the bottom layer.

For the Top Layer - Place the flour, brown sugar and butter in a small bowl and combine (use a fork or fingers) until the mixture resembles large crumbs.  Sprinkle this topping over the fruit mixture. 

Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, then lower the oven to 350 degrees and bake until the top is golden (about 25 minutes).
