Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup whole white wheat flour or all purpose
  • 1/2 cup sugar divided
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cubed and cold
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 4 cups fresh blueberries washed and dried

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Grease an 8x8 baking dish  or line with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, and dash of salt. Mix in the butter with a paddle mixer, pastry blender, or 2 forks until crumbly, and butter is distributed evenly. Reserve 1/2 cup of the mixture for later. With the remaining batter, press it evenly in the glass baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • While crust is baking, mix together yogurt/sour cream, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, vanilla and egg together. Gently fold in the blueberries. When the crust comes out of the oven, pour the blueberry batter over the crust and sprinkle the reserved 1/2 cup crust batter over the berry mixture evenly. Return to the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes or until pie bars are set and crumble over top is slightly browned.
  • Allow to cool for at least an hour before slicing (I found the bars tasted even better the next day if you can wait that long!)

Notes

  • Plain Greek yogurt can be substituted for sour cream. 
  • If using FROZEN blueberries, do NOT thaw and increase baking time by 5 minute intervals. 
  • Store leftover bars in refrigerator for up to 3 days.
