Blueberries and Boy Bands! Chow down on Justin's favorite treat while watching the VMA's! Blueberries and Boy Bands! Chow down on Justin's favorite treat while watching the VMA's! It's time to say "Hi Hi Hi" to the amazing 90's band, *NSYNC! Rumor has it that the boys will be reuniting on stage for the first time in 11 years this Sunday at The MTV Video Music Awards. Fingers crossed! Lead man Justin Timberlake's favorite sweet treat is his Granny's Blueberry Crunch Cake. To celebrate this exciting reunion, we took a healthier spin on JT's favorite dessert with these Oatmeal Blueberry Bars.

Ingredients
2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cup blueberry spreadable fruit , or low-sugar preserves
1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup white, whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup skim or low-fat milk
6 tablespoons cold butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice, from about 1/2 a lemon
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with 2-inch sides with cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, mix together oatmeal, flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and brown sugar. Using the large holes on a box grater, grate the butter and add it to the oatmeal mixture.

3. Using your fingers or two knives, combine the oatmeal mixture with the butter until it forms pea-size chunks.

4. Pour the milk into a small bowl. Add the lemon juice to the milk and stir to combine. Add the vanilla and mix well.

5. Pour the milk mixture into the oatmeal mixture and stir with a fork until all the dough is evenly moistened. It will have the consistency of cookie dough.

6. Press just over half of the dough evenly over the bottom of the prepared pan, using a sheet of plastic wrap so it doesn't stick to your hands. Spread the blueberry preserves evenly over that, then crumble the remaining dough over the blueberry preserves. Some of the jam will be visible through the topping.

7. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until topping is golden brown. Cool completely in the pan, and then cut into 2x3-inch bars. Wrap bars in plastic, seal in a zip-top bag and freeze for longer storage. Otherwise, eat within 2-3 days.
