These homemade vegan Blueberry Crumble Bars are a quick & easy way to start your day and are filled with an irresistible blueberry filling layered between a soft oatmeal cookie crust. PLUS, these are perfect for:

This Blueberry Crumble Bars recipe is:

This easy to make recipe is even better because it is comprised of 8 BASIC ingredients that you more than likely already have. No expensive nut butters here.

WANNA KNOW A SECRET? You have to be patient. Patient with yourself, others, what you want to manifest.

My inner me rolled my eyes at that because I am the least patient person I know.

Often when we want something so bad, we tend to:

  • Overthink

  • Fantasize

  • Have BIG expectations

  • Doubt it will happen

It can be easy to go into daydream mode, hoping that everything will magically fall into your lap, but that usually isn’t the case. Sometimes things aren’t meant to come all at once, it doesn’t mean they aren’t for you, you just may not be ready.

I’m kind of over hearing “If it doesn’t come right away it wasn’t meant for you” If you ask me it is BS.

There may be lessons & tools that you have to gain along the way before you reach your goal.

Sometimes we just got to push ourselves out of the way and let it unfold naturally around us.

What Are Your Thoughts? Let me know in the comments!

Some Final Thoughts & Tips:

  • Other Variations: You can also make this with any other berries of your choice like cherries, strawberries, or raspberries!

  • Can you cool it? Don't skip out on the cooling of the bars! OKAY? I'm just about impatient as it gets & like to eat what I have made right away, but I am asking you to wait. By letting them cool completely, it allows the filling to harden up and not drip all over the place = way better result & taste!

If you try out this recipe make sure to let me know! Leave a comment, rate it, and don’t forget to tag a photo #underthewillow on Instagram or Facebook. I love seeing your creations!
