Fresh Blueberry Pie Bars

These dreamy fresh blueberry pie bars are where it’s at right now!  

Chock full of fresh, abundant California blueberries and a crust that is to die for, this will fast become your favorite dessert.  But I’ve been known to sneak a piece with my morning coffee too!

If you love blueberries, these fresh blueberry pie bars are for you!

This year’s blueberry crop is ready to go right now, so grab up your supply of the plump, sweet fruit and bake this easy dessert today.

 

Let’s get started!

Start by combining all the bottom crust ingredients.  Mix until a soft crumble forms and the mixture comes together.

 

Press the dough into the bottom of a baking dish, reserving about a cup for the topping that we will use a little later.

 

Mix your batter ingredients and measure out the 3 cups of blueberries.

 

Fold in the blueberries and carefully mix until combined.

 

After the bottom crust has baked for 15 minutes, remove from the oven. 

 

Pour the prepared blueberry batter onto the crust and spread evenly.

 

Top with the reserved crust and crumble onto the top of the batter.  Bake at 375° for about 40 minutes.

 

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about an hour.

 

Dish up and serve!  I sprinkled a little powdered sugar to the top for added sweetness.

 

Trust me, you will love these blueberry pie bars!
