Blueberry Cobbler Bars

Are you guys ready for some blueberry recipes? Hubby and I picked fifteen pounds of blueberries! So I’ve been baking up a storm the last few days to use them all up. I have quite a few that we froze because blueberries freeze so well. This way we’ll have freshly picked blueberries year-round for some delicious summertime treats no matter what the weather is doing outside.

These bars taste just like the name implies. Like a delicious blueberry cobbler, but in a portable little bar. I shared these with some friends and coworkers and every really enjoyed them.

I think you could substitute any fruit that you have on hand in place of the blueberries in this recipe. Raspberries would be delicious! Be sure to stay tuned for more blueberry recipes coming your way!

Blueberry Cobbler Bars

Yield: 24 bars

Ingredients:

1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 cups blueberries

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9x13" pan with foil or parchment paper and spray with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, cream together canola oil, butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla, and almond extract and beat well. Add the flours and baking soda and stir just until the batter comes together.

Spread 2/3 of the batter in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with berries, then drop the remaining dough in spoonfuls over the fruit.

Bake for 60-70 minutes, until golden and springy to the touch.

    These pancakes look perfect! I don’t make pancakes that often, but this mix would be an easy throw together to keep in the freezer. Yum!

    Great idea to freeze the mix. I have been making our pancake batter from scratch for a while now, and it’s nearly impossible to go back to the boxed stuff! They just taste flavorless and cardboard-y. I had been reluctant to make mix ahead of time because I didn’t want it to go bad. Thanks for the idea!

    What a great idea to have a homemade pancake mix on hand!

    A good substitute for buttermilk – since most of us don’t keep it on hand, but do have milk in the fridge:

    1 TBS white vinegar with enough milk added to make 1 cup. Allowed to sit for at least ten minutes, this mixture will clot up and mimic buttermilk sufficiently for most recipes.

    Those pancakes look amazing!! Oh my goodness.

    i think it is a great idea about freezing milk, too. I buy whole milk for baking only so I need to do that.

    You can also use lemon juice instead of vinegar in the substitute for buttermilk provided by Nancy.

    One thing to note about this recipe though. Not only is the buttermilk needed for the chemical reaction, but it also provides a great flavor to the pancakes that I don’t think you get from using the substitute. Also, buttermilk will keep for a very long time in the fridge since it’s acidic.

    AB mentioned in his cookbook that there are only four thinks he will not make without buttermilk: cornbread, biscuits, waffles, and pancakes. I tend to agree with him.

    What a great idea to make your own pancake mix and then when you want quick pancakes, you can have a healthy mix 🙂

    Mmm, these look way better than a mix! Great tip to store the mix in the freezer too!

    Yum! I love blueberry ‘anything’. Alton Brown recipes are always winners. If you’re looking for an even healthier pancake recipe, check out my ‘fluffy whole wheat pancakes’ on my blog. I mix batches of the dry ingredients and keep them in the freezer. Thanks for posting – I’m off to buy some blueberries! Oh, and I’m a new follower 🙂
