Berry Medley Oatmeal Crumb Bars - You can indulge in these bars guilt-free in all of its crumbly glory!

Boy, am I glad it’s Friday. This week completely dragged on and I was honestly ready for a glass of wine at 10AM on Monday morning. Then, Wednesday, I woke up with a sore throat and now I am officially sick as a dog, inhaling cough drops by the minute and counting down the seconds until I am officially off of work to make my way to San Francisco.

See, Jason is officially done with his second year of architecture school so he will be moving back home to LA for 4 WHOLE MONTHS! I can’t be more excited to have him back home again – this long-distance thing has been an absolute pain! But having him home for the whole summer is definitely going to change things around the house – i.e. I’ll be back to inhaling burgers, chili cheese fries, late-night Mexican food and more-artery clogging foods.

But before you start seeing that all over the blog, I just had to share these bars with you. They’re made with whole wheat pastry flour and loaded with three different kinds of berries, topped with a crumbly, oatmeal topping. I’m sure Jason would steer clear of these bars but that just means there’s more guilt-free bars for me to indulge in!

  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 3/4 cup blackberries

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  2. In a small bowl, combine berries, sugar and cornstarch; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Add egg, vanilla and cold butter, using your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Spread 2/3 of the batter into the prepared baking dish. Spread berry mixture evenly over the bottom layer. Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 of the batter and turbinado sugar.
  5. Place into oven and bake until lightly browned, about 25-30 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting into bars.

  1. If you don’t have whole wheat flour will it work equally well with regular flour?

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Good recipe.  Can you please share a picture of what you mean by “coarse crumbs”?  This is probably the only difficult part

  3. Great recipe, they are delicious. Do you refrigerate the bars?

  4. I’m confused by your butter measurement. 1/2 cup or 1 stick? These are quarters then?

  5. Hi! Do you think frozen fruits would work well? And can I use regular flour instead of whole wheat flour?

  6. Holy Cow – that looks incredible! Such a beautiful oatmeal bars 🙂 Pinned!
