Blueberry Crumb Bars (Vegan)

I am a big fan of fruity desserts.  That is why I made these Blueberry Crumb Bars.   These Blueberry Crumb Bars are actually healthy enough for breakfast too.  They didn’t last long at our house!  I made these healthy crumb bars oil free too.

We are currently staying at my inlaw’s house as our kitchen gets renovated.  I can tell you that everyone  in the house enjoyed these crumb bars.  If you like fruit bars, you may also enjoy my Homemade Nutri-grain Bars or my Homemade Fig Newtons.

I went a little overboard on the jelly, so mine is oozing out the sides.  I recommend not spreading the jelly all the way to the end.  Leave about a 1 inch boarder because the jam will spread.

These were still delicious though.  In addition to being oil free, these bars are also gluten free and vegan. 🙂  This recipe was adapted from my Pumpkin Raspberry Oat Bars.

Delicious Blueberry Crumb Bars that are healthy enough for breakfast!



  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl .
  3. Mix wet in another bowl .
  4. Add dry to wet and mix until combined. I just used a spatula for this.
  5. Line an 8x8 glass baking dish with parchment paper. Leave enough paper to stick out the sides.
  6. Put 1/2 the mixture into the bottom of the baking dish.
  7. Spread the jam on top.
  8. Lastly, sprinkle the remaining mixture on top.
  9. Bake for 25 minutes.
  10. Let the bars completely cool before removing from the baking dish.
  11. Use a pizza cutter to cut into squares.
  12. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. These should last a couple weeks. Enjoy!

  1. I have oat flour at home, but wondered if I could also use all purpose gluten free flour in case i ever dont have oat flour? I would still want to use the rolled oats to give it texture though.
    1. I used blueberries in the jam. Here is the recipe I used for the jam. I linked it in the post as well. :)
  2. Looks like a wonderful dessert, even without chocolate! Thanks so much for offering us a great recipe to satisfy that sweet craving, yet not take us down the chocolate road.
  3. I LOVE crumb bars but HATE how unhealthy they are. Thanks for sharing a recipe so healthy that they'd be perfect for breakfast! AND then they look just as good, if not better, than their fat and calorie laden counterpart. Can't wait to make these :)
  4. Do you think I could use thawed frozen blueberries instead of the jam? I don't have the jam on hand and I see it takes a few hours to set up.
  5. Yummy, these look delicious! I've made your peach chia jam and loved it so I'm sure blueberry is just as awesome. It sets up really nice since the chia seeds make it thick. Thanks for the recipe and I'm sure you'll be glad when your renovation is done!
    1. Thanks Kayla! I bet that peach jam would be good in these as well! Hopefully about 3 more weeks left until the renovation is done. Yay!
  6. love, love, love this recipe. Wish the pic was smaller so I could get the recipe on one page to print, though. You are a gifted lady. Thanks for sharing.
  7. I made these with coconut flour. The batter was somewhat dry and the bars too. They ended up having a sort of gritty texture. Didn't work for me.
    1. Coconut flour will not work as a sub in any recipes. It's very fickle to bake with and you often need LOTS of eggs to make it work. It's best to use coconut flour in recipe that were written for it.
  8. These look great! I really want to make them, but I don't use coconut sugar. Is there any way to sub maple syrup?
  9. Hi..this sounds interesting and yummy too..but I Dont have apple sauce .Don't know if its available in Qatar but if u have a recipe of home made apple sauce pls share it with us. Thanks
    1. I do have a homemade applesauce recipe. Here is the link. IF you are using it in baking, just leave out the spices.
  10. I made these today and they are delicious! However, I had to double the amount of jam used to get a similar thickness as in your photo and I could have used less of the oat mix (the top and bottom of the bars are much thicker). With those small substitutions I'll definitely be making them again!
