Whole Wheat Ginger Blueberry Crumble Bars with fresh blueberries. Perfect with a glass of cold milk.

Well, y’all, we’re over the weekend slump. It’s Thursday, which means it’s basically Friyay.

Yes, Friyay.

I’ve been baking up a storm since getting back from traveling and it feels so good. I just love being in the kitchen and creating.

One of the things I whipped up this week are these Whole Wheat Ginger Blueberry Crumble Bars. They’re perfect as an after dinner treat with a glass of milk. And the whole wheat brings in a nice subtle nuttiness.

Plus it’s whole wheat so I feel a teensy healthier baking with it.

  • ½ cup salted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ⅓ cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

for the blueberry layer

  • 3 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line an 8″x8″ glass pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a standing mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars for 1-2 minutes, until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract for another minute.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and ginger. Stir flour mixture, along with oats, into the wet ingredients.
  4. In a third bowl, mix together blueberries, granulated sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch.
  5. Place half of the dough into prepared pan, spreading to the edges. Pour in blueberry mixture. Break remaining oatmeal batter into pieces and place over blueberries.
  6. Bake for 30 mins, or until a knife inserted in the center of the bars comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly before serving!

These look absolutely incredible. fruit pies and crumbles are my favourite desserts, and these just look like a handy portable version! Have you tried eating them warm? I imagine they’d go great with a little cream or custard!

These look so good! I love the combo of blueberry and ginger! I often wonder how bloggers come up with so many different ideas all the time! I get constantly stuck on creating ideas, or I have so many ideas i don’t know what to do with them!

Hi Sarah! I don’t have access to whole wheat pastry flour; What can I use instead of it?

You can use all-purpose white!
