No-Bake Blueberry Bars

Raw Blueberry Bars

The advent of blazing southwestern Ontario summer heat means that it's time to enjoy refrigerated treats and the refreshing taste of summer berries … or better yet, refrigerated berry treats! I'm especially partial to blueberries and wholesome and nourishing raw treats, so these two-layer no-bake raw blueberry bars combine the best of both worlds. Chewy, cool and refreshing, these are perfect bars to keep on hand in the refrigerator or to pack into a picnic cooler on hot days.

These sound great! Is it 1 2/3 CUP oat flour in the top layer?
