Anita's Test Kitchen


  1. Line an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with parchment and set aside. Pre-heat the oven to 350˚F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour; oats; sugar; and coconut. Cut the butter or non-dairy alternative into smallish pieces and with your fingers (or a pastry cutter) work the butter into the dry mix until it resembles wet sand. Set aside 1 cup of this mixture and pour the rest into the prepared pan. Push the mixture down firmly and smooth out the layer as much as possible. Place in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes until it is lightly golden around the edges.
  3. In a medium size bowl, mix together the blueberries; starch; 2 tbsp. of sugar and lemon juice. The lemon juice will help the starch to stick to the berries and create a little sauce. When the cooking time on the base is up add the berry mixture to the pan and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the remaining base mixture evenly over the top of the blueberry mixture and bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
  4. Allow the mixture to cool fully before cutting into bars. Makes 8 large or 16 small bars.

    My daughter & I love the Starbucks Blueberry Oat Bars, so when I saw this recipe we had to make them! We will never eat a Starbucks Blueberry Oat Bar again! These were DELICIOUS, the coconut was amazing! I wouldn’t change a thing!

      Awesome! Plus the added bonus that they are a lot healthier!

    I made these this afternoon after seeing your post on Instagram ,not only that I see your products are available here in London Ontario ! I didn’t have quite enough Blueberries so I added a few Cranberries to the mix . You say these are easy and you are correct. We really enjoyed them and I will no doubt be making them again. The Coconut was an excellent addition. Next time I will make a much bigger batch as I expect they freeze well if they make it that far.
