Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter cubed
  • 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
Filling:
  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch

Method

Filling: In saucepan, bring blueberries, sugar and orange juice to boil; reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Whisk cornstarch with 2 tbsp (25 mL) water; whisk into blueberries and boil, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Place plastic wrap directly on surface; refrigerate until cooled, about 1 hour.

In large bowl, whisk together oats, flour, sugar, orange rind and salt ; with pastry blender, cut in butter until in coarse crumbs. Press half into 8-inch (2 L) square parchment paper–lined metal cake pan; spread with blueberry filling. Sprinkle with remaining oat mixture, pressing lightly.

Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven until light golden, about 45 minutes. Let cool on rack before cutting into squares. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or overwrap with heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
