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.

    Mmm I love jam, and this looks great for strawberry season! I unfortunately don’t like blueberries — would you adjust the other ingredients if you minus them? Also where do you get canning jars? Yay, fun summer project!

    yumventures – You can def leave the blueberries out. Follow the link through to Ina’s original recipe. It doesn’t have blueberries in it. The comments on the Food Network website did say that it was a bit sweet with the sugar listed in the recipe, so keep that in mind.

    I’ve never made homemade jam before…but wow this sure does look delicious!

    It would be great in some thumbprint cookies or linzer cookies…yumm.

    Does this recipe require pectin? I’ve heard that pectin is found naturally in raspberries so you don’t need it for that kind of jam, but wasn’t sure if it applied to strawberry as well. I am new to making jam but am excited to try!

    Hey there.. I have done your strawberry/blueberry jam, and I’m tellin ya,, it was sooooo goooood. Not too sweet either. My problem was, it never would really thicken, and I checked it on a saucer I kept in the freezer. It remained runny,, but ohh sooo good. I gave it away to family and they loved it. I’m just preparing to do more,, fingers crossed, I do hope it gets a little thicker this time. If I were to put the slightest amount of pectin I’m wondering what would happen?????? I noticed this posting is from 2010

      I think a little bit of pectin could help thicken the jam. If you try it, I’d love to know how it turns out.
