Blueberry Crisp Bars

IMG_5559

One of my favorite things about summer is summer produce…and berries are one of them! I bought a huge thing of blueberries for only $5 at Safeway the other day, so I made these delicious 9-ingredient blueberry crisp bars.

What you’ll need to make them:

For the crust:

  • 1/2 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • (OPTIONAL) 1 scoop of collagen peptides
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt

(Since I had a cinnamon flavored applesauce, I omitted the 1 tsp of cinnamon).

For the filling:

  • 2 cups of blueberries
  • 2 tbsp sweetener of choice (honey, maple syrup, sugar)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (I only had lime juice on hand)

For the crumble topping:

  • 2 additional tbsp sweetener
  • 2 additional tbsp old fashioned rolled oats

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line an 8×8 inch baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl mix together Greek yogurt, egg, and unsweetened applesauce.

Cut it up into squares and eat as so or top with some vanilla bean ice cream!
