Super simple Cinnamon Sugar Blueberry Crumb Bars. These bars are berry-filled, extra jammy, buttery, and oh so delicious. The base is a simple salted butter crumb dough sweetened with golden brown sugar. The filling has hints of lemon and is made with fresh blueberries and blueberry jam…for the maximum berry experience. And the final buttery crumb layer is tossed in cinnamon-sugar, creating the ultimate extra sweet topping. Put everything together and you have a blueberry crumb bar that’s buttery, jammy, sweet, cinnamony, and layered with deliciousness. These bars are everyone’s summer favorite.

All Tuesdays are made better with something sweet, don’t you think? Especially when it’s summer and there are so many sweet berries and stone fruits to be baking with.

It’s funny, sometimes all I want to make are savory recipes. But then sometimes my sweet tooth kicks into high gear, and all I want to do is bake. Right now I seem to have a “summer baking bug”…and I’m not complaining one bit.

I’m so excited to be sharing these bars today. I’ve been working on them for weeks now and finally got them just right. Sometimes recipes are easy…and sometimes they require a little more time and attention. These are an example of the latter, but the added effort and multiple rounds of testing were worth it.

I could not love these simple blueberry crumb bars more. I rarely ever think a recipe is “perfect”, but these are pretty darn close.

Extra buttery, soft, sweet, gooey, filled with blueberries and hints of both vanilla and cinnamon. Honestly? These are the fruity bars you need to make this summer.

And super pretty, which I love!

Jumping right into the details…

As mentioned, these bars are easy to bake up and require very little prep work.

First things first, there are three very important ingredients in this recipe…the butter, the berries, and the jam.

Let’s start with the butter, as I think it’s rather important. You need to use high-quality butter here, preferably high-quality salted butter. Personally, I love using Land O Lakes® Butter. You all know it’s my go-to butter and what I use in my kitchen every day for both baking and cooking.

I love the rich buttery flavor and hints of salt in Land O Lakes® Butter. It creams wonderfully into a batter and always turns out the best brownies (like these peanut butter brownie ice cream bars) and sweet pies (like my peaches and cream pretzel pie).

A little fun fact about Land O Lakes®? They were founded in 1921 and to this day they remain farmer-owned. Today, they’ve grown into a group of more than 1,700 family-owned dairy farmers. I love that such a huge brand has remained true to its core values. To me, this makes their butter that much better.

Moving on to the berries…I really wanted them to burst in your mouth, but yet be jammy too. Enter the combination of fresh blueberries and sweet blueberry jam.

Using a combination of fresh berries and sweet jam adds so much flavor and texture. The fresh blueberries provide a burst of flavor with every single bite. But the jam makes the bars extra sweet, gooey, and yeah – jammy. I LOVE the combo. It’s the secret to making these crumbs bars some of the very best. If you haven’t tried using jam in addition to fresh berries in your baked sweets, you have to trust me and give it a try.

Assembling the bars.

For the dough, just mix the butter with flour, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt. Press half the dough into a baking pan, reserving the remaining dough for the topping. Then add the berries and jam. I like to toss the berries with a bit of lemon and vanilla for added flavor.

Now, with the reserved dough, toss it with sweet cinnamon-sugar. Yes, cinnamon-sugar. It’s that extra-special touch I love to incorporate into recipes. The cinnamon creates a warming bar and highlights the sweetness and saltiness within the berries and butter.

Crumble the cinnamon-sugar dough over the bars…and bake. About 30 or so minutes later you’ll have a kitchen that smells wonderful, and bars that look even better.

These are great as a sweet breakfast, afternoon snack, or after-dinner dessert. Oh, and eating them warm, right out of the pan, isn’t technically what you’re supposed to do, but it sure is delicious.

I’ll let you make the call on how to eat them. But you guys know me, I’m all about warm, right out of the pan…maybe even add some ice cream? Yeah, that would be delicious!

    These were delicious! I followed the recipe as written and everyone loved them. They are rich, but not excessively sweet or greasy, and the lemon zest helps balance the flavors very well. The amount of butter is needed otherwise I think the crust may not be as tender. Thanks for a great recipe! Btw, I live at 6,000 ft so I’m thrilled when a baking project works out great!
