Blueberry Pie Oat Bars

We love to switch up our breakfast options and these blueberry pie oatmeal bars are perfect! We enjoyed them outside on our patio on a hot summer morning with a cup of coffee and it was wonderful. They are hearty, filling and taste kind of like dessert with the blueberry pie filling. These blueberry pie oatmeal bars were enjoyed by my entire family of all different ages and I think that you will love them too.

On Father's Day, my sister's fiance made the best blueberry crumble. I asked him how he made the blueberries taste so flavorful and he said that adding lemon and cinnamon to blueberries really brings out the flavor. I tried it and he was totally right! A slightly tart but mostly sweet filling that really makes these bars great.

When I was first planning this recipe, I wanted to make the bars more for dessert but they were even better for breakfast. Loaded with old-fashioned oats, they were the perfect addition of whole-grains and fiber. I lowered the sugar a ton compared to what would normally be in this type of recipe to make the oatmeal bars healthier.


You can enjoy these blueberry pie oatmeal bars for breakfast, a snack or even a dessert. They can be picked up with your hands or eaten with a fork. Store them in the fridge and enjoy at room temperature, heated or cold.

To help the oats stick together, I used Planet Oat® Vanilla Oatmilk which I found at Kroger which is so tasty on its own and worked great in this recipe.


Add Planet Milk Oatmilk to your cart!

Planet Oat Oatmilk is an oatmilk for all. It is free from lactose, soy, gluten, peanuts, and tree nuts, and with the ability to be used across all dairy occasions (cereal, coffee, smoothies, cooking/baking), Planet Oat is a terrific option for everyone and every occasion. If you are cooking for someone who cannot have dairy or chooses not to, it is a great option.


It is an excellent source of vitamins A and D and has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. They have 4 grams of sugar per serving which isn't much. To learn more visit: The Planet Oat Website.

  1. These look amazing...unfortunately, the oat milk puts me off since I'll use just for this recipe and then throw the rest of it away, I steer away from "unusual" ingredients like this which must be used up quickly. Any thoughts on how to replace the oat milk?

    1. Well that seems pretty straightforward! I was thinking maybe since it was vanilla oat milk, I'd need to add vanilla or something!
