Lemon Blueberry Crumble Bars make the perfect easy summer treat. Filled with a sweet and juicy blueberry & lemon filling. Best of all with this simple recipe, the buttery oatmeal streusel crust doubles as the topping.
Blueberries are one of my favorite things about summer. As soon as they are in season, I can never resist buying them by the boat load.
Most of the time we just enjoy them straight from the bowl but at least once a year, I love tossing whatever summer fruit I have on hand together with a buttery streusel crust.
They are one of the easiest customizable desserts to make from scratch. The best part is that you can really use whatever berries or summer fruit you have.
It’s one of those desserts you can’t help sneaking another bite every time you walk by the kitchen 😉
They start off with a buttery crumb topping made with flour, oats, brown and white sugar, lemon zest and some cold butter. The wonderful thing about these bars is that the crust doubles as the topping.
Feel free to swap in frozen blueberries if you’d like or during the winter when fresh berries aren’t in season — simply thaw and pat dry.
These Lemon Blueberry Crumb Bars would make a special indulgent breakfast or afternoon treat warmed up with a scoop of ice cream.
The portable size also make them perfect to bring along to your next barbecue, potluck or summer party.
