Lemon Blueberry Crumble Bars.  Loaded with blueberries, these Lemon Blueberry Crumble Bars are buttery soft, moist and blueberry delicious with an underlying flavor of lemon.  Serve them at room temperature or serve them warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and everyone will go bonkers after one bite!

These bars are the easiest thing to make and take with you to any gathering, picnic, or even pot luck.  You only need 10 minutes to prep and 30 minutes to bake.  Made with wholesome ingredients.  These bars are made with butter, 1 egg, some sugar, flour, baking powder, lemon zest, lemon juice and fresh blueberries.  That’s it!

Lemon Blueberry Crumble Bars go perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning!

The sweetness is not overpowering and the flavors are well balanced with a hint of lemon enhancing the flavor of the blueberries.

So delicious !  My husband described it as one the finest desserts he has ever had in a long time.

First, make the dough in one easy step.  Then pat half of the crumble mixture into your baking pan.

Next, pour the blueberry mixture on top of the crust, then with the remaining crumble on top and bake.

After baking these bars, I like to wait until they cool completely, then cut them into squares.   This will ensure them from falling apart, making it easier to serve them.  And no mess.

 They all freeze well too!

I love making these crumble bars and of course with the abundance of fresh berries out there in season, you can make so many different flavors.   Enjoy!!

  • 1 large egg
For the Filling:
  • Juice of 1 lemon ( about ¼ cup)

  1. Toss together the lemon juice, sugar, cornstarch and blueberries until well combined. Pour the blueberries mixture on top the crumbled crust in an even layer. And spoon any remaining lemon juice in the bowl on top as well. Then, sprinkle the other half of the remaining crumbs over the blueberries.
  2. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the top and sides are golden. Allow to cool to room temperature before cutting and serving.
  3. Yields: 15 to 18 bars

    Baked these yesterday. I put in 2 lemons worth of zest and they have a nice strong lemon blueberry flavor. I also put in some more blueberries because I had them in the fridge. Tempting as it might be – I caution people against putting more than one layer of blueberries in the pan. The juicy blueberries might make the bars fall apart.

    Flavor overall is good but the texture is not a true bar cookie, more like a flat crumble. Very soft. They can be picked up and eaten if you are careful, but you could also put on a plate and use a fork.

    I dont know that this is “one of the finest desserts” but it is very nice and easily put together. Might be a good cooking lesson for a tween who is ready to move past scrambled eggs and pancakes.

      Hi Rebecca! So glad to hear you’ve tried my crumble bars! Adding more zest sounds wonderful (since we adore lemon flavor) and adding more blueberries will definitely change the texture of these bars. But overall, the flavors combined are delicious. Adding only 2 cups of the blueberries will give you the end result of a crumble bars as I have shown here. Enjoy and thanks for leaving your comment!
