Blueberry Squares

Ingredients

  • 1 (14 ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice  
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

 Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).


 Step 2

Place chickpeas, 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, and salt in a food processor. Blend to a dough-like consistency; press into an 8x11-inch baking pan.


 Step 3

Bake crust in the preheated oven until crisp and lightly browned, 20 minutes.


 Step 4

Combine blueberries, white sugar, and lemon juice in a saucepan; cook over medium-low heat until blueberries have reduced, 10 to 15 minutes. Whisk cornstarch and water together in a small bowl; stir into blueberry mixture. Cook until mixture thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour blueberry mixture onto the cooked crust.


 Step 5

Mix 1 1/2 cup rolled oats, flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda together in a large bowl until bread crumb consistency. Sprinkle over blueberry mixture.
