Blueberry Crumble Breakfast Bars

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

When it comes to breakfast, there’s some pretty standard fare. French toast, pancakes, oatmeal, cereal. 


Fine options for most days, I suppose. But what about those days when you wake up and the same-old everyday standard just won’t cut it?

Well, on those days, you make a batch of protein-granola Blueberry Crumble Breakfast Bars. With a crunchy granola crust, organic jam and blueberry filling, and golden granola streusel topping, these lightly sweetened bars are an ideal make-ahead breakfast or easy brunch nom.

And they’re so easy. Check it out.

Your ingredient lineup starts with these simple basics. Granola, flour, berries and jam. A bit of flour, honey, butter and brown sugar.

In a stand mixer, beat together the granola crust, then press about 3/4 of the batch into the bottom of a 9x13-inch pan.

Press the crust down firmly from corner to corner, to ensure the blueberry filling doesn’t dribble down to the bottom of the pan while baking.

Speaking of that blueberry filling: A quick mix of Cascadian Farm jam, honey, cornstarch, and fresh or frozen blueberries and you’re on your way.

Spread this layer over the entire bottom crust, evenly distributing the blueberries from end to end. Top with the remaining granola mixture and bake.

Once golden, you’ll want to completely cool your pan so the filling can fix itself in place. I like to pop my pan in the fridge, because who wants to wait for blueberries?

I like cutting the bars into 5 rows on the long side of the pan and 4 rows on the short. Hello there, little blueberry bars.

These beautiful squares are ready to serve, share or wrap for lunchboxes. They’re great for just about every morning thing ever—and they pair ever so nicely with a cup of coffee and side of bacon.
