  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp butter melted
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 cups frozen blueberries

Topping:

  • 2 Tbsp white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix together the topping ingredients: oats, flour, cinnamon and brown sugar. Cut the butter in with 2 knives, or use your hands to crumble and distribute butter throughout mixture so it resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle evenly over the blueberries.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool in pan completely before cutting and serving.

Notes

Chef’s Notes:
  • These are not that sweet, which we like and our children did as well. However, you can add a little more sugar to the mixture or the topping if you prefer.
  • Peanut powder can be purchased in the regular peanut butter aisle in the grocery store now.
  • Hemp hearts are hulled hemp seeds. If you can’t find them, use ground flaxseed or chia seeds instead.
Mix It Up: Use any berries or combination of berries in place of the blueberries. Frozen berries make it convenient to make these any time of year, though fresh could certainly be used in place of the frozen.
