#32 Blueberry Pie Crumble Bars

Hello spring! It's nice of you to finally show up with your warm weather. I have missed you, and I've been waiting for you. Not only for the warm weather you bring, but for the excuse to make delicious blueberry pie crumble bars because they are kind of spring-y, right?

I made these bars for an Easter breakfast, and they were a hit! Not too sweet, but just sweet enough is what my friend said about them. Just what I love to hear (although I think it's hard for something to be "too sweet" anyway...)

I absolutely love these bars not only because of their taste, but because they are SO easy! Four main ingredients and a couple for sprinkling, and you have the entire recipe covered! 

So while you can, and while we're in the beautiful spring season, go make these! Not that you need the "spring" excuse to whip these up, but it helps. This isn't pumpkin-spice-and-fall season, nor is it peppermint-and-chocolate-Christmas season. But, finally...finally, it's warm, sunny, lemon, strawberry, fruity blueberry season. 

These take less than ten minutes to prepare, and they're great for snacks, breakfast or dessert. (Don't forget to top them with ice cream to make it an even yummier dessert...Just trying to help.)
