Step 1

Grease a 7 x 11-inch baking pan, then line bottom with a sheet of parchment paper; set aside.

Step 2

In a food processor, put the flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon; pulse to blend for 20 seconds.

Step 3

Add in the cold butter chunks, and pulse to cut in the butter into the dry ingredients until you have a crumbly mass (not dry, but not sticking together).

Step 4

In a bowl toss the blueberries with lemon juice, then mix in the sugar and cornstarch.

Step 5

Spread half of the oatmeal mixture on the bottom of the pan then pat down gently using your hands

Step 6

Top with the blueberry mixture as evenly as you can, then top with the remaining oatmeal mixture, and press down slightly.

Step 7

Chill the pan for about 45 minutes.

Step 8

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, then bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the fruit starts to bubble.

Step 9

Cool pan very well before cutting, or refrigerate for 2-3 hours before cutting into squares (once sliced it will appear watery but will thicken upon standing and/or chilling)
