Karen’s Blueberry Oat Linzer Bars – Gluten Free

Karen’s Blueberry Oat Linzer Bars – Gluten Free

Spring Blueberries are fresh in markets and delicious. An easy “press-in” dough recipe!

Just a great combination of complimentary ingredients – ground nuts, cinnamon, sweet jam… confectioner’s sugar and oats for texture.

Karen’s Blueberry Oat Linzer Bars – Gluten Free


1 stick unsalted organic butter, softened

¾ cup confectioner’s sugar

1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour mix, such as Arrowhead Mills

1 cup ground nuts, combination pecans & almonds

3 tablespoons gluten-free oats, divided – 2 T. for dough, 1 T. for topping

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon sea salt

½ teaspoon almond extract

⅔ cup blueberry jam, see recipe



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9″ X 9″ pan with parchment paper to fit, lightly grease.


Place all ingredients except the jam in a stand mixer, and mix until combined (reserve 1 T. oats as directed).


The mixture will be crumbly. With your hands, gather the dough so it comes together.
Place about 2/3’s of the dough into the prepared pan. Press down. Dollop with the jam and smooth all over.


Crumble the rest of the dough over the top, I like to do this in large chunks. Keep some jam exposed.


Sprinkle with the reserved 1 T. of oats. Press down slightly.


Bake until just golden and a little bubbly, about 15 minutes.


Cool completely. Cut with a sharp knife into 4 rows across, and 4 rows down, yielding 16 squares.


Sprinkle with a little confectioner’s sugar (most are gluten-free).
