BLUEBERRY MATCHA CRUMB BARS

You will love this Blueberry Matcha Crumb Bars recipe! An easy, quick and SUPER-delicious dessert - made with fresh or frozen blueberries!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup sugar (plus extra 1/3 cup for blueberries)
  • 2 Tbsp of Everyday Matcha
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • zest of one lemon
  • 4 cups fresh blueberries
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch

Blueberries

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar, 3 cups flour, salt, lemon zest, and baking powder. Use a food processor or pastry cutter to blend in the butter, egg and vanilla. (Or if you don't have these appliances, you can use an old fashioned fork!) Dough will be crumbly. Pat half of dough into the prepared pan.

In another bowl, stir together the sugar, Matcha, and cornstarch. Gently mix in the blueberries. Sprinkle the blueberry mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble remaining dough over the berry layer.

Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
