One of our very favorite back to school treats are these blueberry oatmeal breakfast bars. This breakfast bar recipe is great for rushed school mornings. We will often make a batch, enjoy a few fresh out of the oven and then wrap and freeze the rest. Blueberry oatmeal bars also make a great after-school snack with a glass of milk!
In the very near future, we will be back in the swing of things with the start of a new school year. My son will be starting the first grade, and I’m really looking forward to it…him not so much. If it were up to Harrison he would have summer all year round, filled with unlimited scooter time, and playing outside with his friends.
But, soon enough we will be getting up earlier, and getting out the door for school in an effort to re-establish our school routine. This involves having something ready to go for breakfast, which is where these Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Bars come into play.
How this breakfast bar recipe comes together
These breakfast bars are not only delicious, they’re also super-easy to make. The blueberry filling can be made with either fresh or frozen blueberries, great for any time of the year. The oatmeal crust is amazing, as the brown sugar and oatmeal keep all the juices in the bar perfectly.
You’ll begin my mixing together the oatmeal brown sugar crust by combining the oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, soda and salt. Melt the butter, and pour over the oatmeal mixture. Mix together until incorporated and crumbly. Press 2/3 of the oatmeal mixture into a 9×13 pan, saving the other 1/3 for the topping.
Mix together the blueberries and sugar, and pour over the bottom crust, making sure the berries are evenly distributed over the crust. Then, top the berries with the remaining 1/3 of the crust. Simply crumble over the top of the berries.

These oatmeal breakfast bars are great to wrap up, put in the freezer, and take out when you need a quick snack or breakfast on the run. They’re also great to put in a lunchbox or eat the car or bus when your crunched for time.
Much like my Cherry Almond Breakfast Cookies, this breakfast bar recipe is way better than any store-bought bar or cookie. Loaded with juicy, ripe blueberries and topped with a brown sugar-oatmeal crumble these bars are a delicious way to have breakfast on the run.
