Blueberry Oatmeal Bars

Blueberry Oatmeal Bars
1 and 1/2 cup flour
1 and 1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt.
Mix dry ingredients together.
Add 1 and 1/2 stick (12 Tbs) melted butter and stir together.
Line a pan with tin foil and either butter and cooking spray. Pat down 2/3 of oatmeal mixture into the pan. Bake 375F for 20 - 30 min until golden.
Blueberry filling
1 and 1/2 cup blue berries
2 Tbs lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup blue berry jam
Mix together in a sauce pan on low - medium heat until bubbly and set aside. Adjust sugar and lemon juice to taste.
Pour Blue berry filling over baked oatmeal crust. Add remaining 1/3 of oatmeal mixture on top (if you haven't eaten it all which I almost did). Bake another 20 - 30 min at 375F until golden on top and blueberries are bubbling out the sides. Let cool (Except at my house where we don't wait for anything to cool) and cut into bars. Best served warm with ice cream.
