Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Base and Topping:
1 1/2 c oats (quick or old fashioned)
1/2 c flour
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
6 tbsp unsalted butter -- melted

1 1/2 c. blueberries -- rinsed and patted dry
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp lemon juice

Heat oven to 350 deg. Line 8-inch square baking pan with foil, letting ends extend above pan on 2 sides.

In large bowl, mix oats, flour, brown sugar, soda and salt. Add melted butter and stir with fork until evenly moistened (it will be crumbly). Reserve 1/2 c for topping. Press remaining mixture evenly and firmly into bottom of ungreased, foil-lined pan. Bake 12 minutes to set crust.

Prepare filling while crust bakes: In a small saucepan stir filling ingredients over med. heat until simmering. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until juices are no longer cloudy, about 2 minutes. Spoon over crust. Crumble reserved crumb mixture over top. Bake 30 min. until top is well browned and filling is bubbly. Let cool completely in pan. Lift foil by ends onto cutting board. Peel off foil; cut in 2-inch squares.

Makes 16 squares
