Prep Time


Berry Filling

  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Orange Juice
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

Crust and Crumble Topping

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ¾ cup brown sugar packed
  • 1-½ tsp grated orange zest
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1 stick sweet butter melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a 9 inch square pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium saucepan stir together all filling ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium high heat stirring often to reduce until mixture is thick and the berries breakdown, about 15 minutes. While filling is cooking make the crust.
  3. For crust and crumble, mix together the first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add melted butter to blend well. Reserve 3/4 cup for topping. Transfer remaining mixture to baking pan.
  4. Press firmly in bottom to form a crust. Spoon filling in an even layer. Sprinkle with remaining topping. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool before cutting.
