Accidentally vegan, Peanut Butter & Blueberry Bars

I’m just going to post around the clock now WTH. I made these with blueberries I picked yesterday off one of the bushes in the yard. Some of ’em were a little ripe but I’m trying to keep them off the birds’ radar, and if they’re tasty plucked and eaten fresh off the bush I figured they’d be good to bake with.

Will cut into squares when fully cool. Note the amazing Self Restraint!

Peanut butter & blueberry bars

Original recipe here. I doubled the amount of blueberries b/c I picked that many off our bushes yesterday.

  • 2/3rd pkg cultured vegan butter, cut in chunks
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 pints fresh blueberries
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  1. Mix ingredients 1-5 with hands.
  2. Grease a pan (9×12?), coconut oil.
  3. Press about 3/4 of crust into pan
  4. Mash berries slightly with lemon juice & maple syrup. Put on top of crust & cover with remaining mixture. Next time maybe use 2 1/2 cups flour and the full pkg of butter for more topping. Also maybe add nuts to topping.
  5. Cook at 350 convection for about 40min. Check to see if crust is golden. Let cool on a rack & then cut into squares.
