Blueberry Crumb Bars


It is that time of year again..Blueberry season, more accurately “Blueberry month” ๐Ÿ™‚ In honor of my 3 year old lovie nicknamed “Blueberry.” I decided to make a few special recipes in honor of her. I searched high and low for standout Blueberry recipes and when I found this one at Smitten Kitchen, I knew I had found something fun, delicious and beautiful, just like my little Blue :). I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter (2 sticks or 8 ounces)

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Zest and juice of one lemon

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries

  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch


  • Grease a 9×13 pan
  • Preheat oven at 375 degrees
  • Mix together 1 cup sugar, flour and baking powder. Mix in salt and lemon zest. Use a fork or pastry cutter to mix in cold butter and egg. (Dough will be crumbly).
  • Pat down half of the dough into the greased pan.
  • In a separate bowl mix 1/2 cup sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch. Gently add in blueberries.
  • Pour blueberry mixture over crumb bottom evenly. Crumble the remaining dough over the top to cover.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes or until it is just golden on top. *Mind your personal oven, there may need to be adjustments on time.* Cool completely and cut into squares. These are unusual in that the fridge is best for storage.


  1. I have the great fortune of working with Nicole’s husband. This morning, he brought in the ‘left overs’ for us, and I must admit these were VERY good.

    Its not my cheat day, and I almost didn’t have one. However, I worked out this morning, and they looked SOOO good, I just couldn’t pass it up. Really glad I didn’t. I’m going to bookmark these for my next cheat day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The blueberry version looks fantastic too! Love your photo!
