Ingredients

for the base

  • 120 g plain flour
  • 80 g oats
  • 100 g light brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 85 g salted butter, melted and semi-cool
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed

for the filling

  • 185 g full-fat plain yogurt
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 1 large egg white, lightly whisked (30g)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 18 g plain flour (2 tbsp)
  • 100 g dried blueberries

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 160°C. Grease a 9x9-inch brownie tin with butter and line with baking parchment; set aside.

for the base

  • In a medium bowl, use a whisk to combine the first 5 ingredients. Switch to a rubber spatula, and mix in the final two ingredients: melted butter and lemon juice. Stir together until a dough forms.
  • Set aside a heaping 1/2 cup of the mixture, and pour the rest into the prepared pan. Using your fingers, press the dough into an even layer covering the base of the tin.

for the filling

  • In the same bowl, use a whisk to combine all of the ingredients apart from the blueberries. When homogenous, whisk in the blueberries.
  • Pour the filling evenly over the base, and top with the reserved crumble dough, breaking it up as you go.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 27-30 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the top is set. Leave to cool in the tin for 15-minutes, before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and enjoy!
