These little crumble bars are downright heavenly. In this recipe, blueberry purée rests between an oat crust and a layer of crumbles. When baked, cooled, and refrigerated overnight they come out perfectly, creating the most desirable bars around. Enjoy these for breakfast or dessert, with a cup of coffee to balance out the sweetness.
