The blueberry filling was tasty but the crust/crumbs were awful.

These delicious blueberry treats feature moist fruit filling with a crunchy topping made with the same dough as the crust.
7 Reviews for Whole-Wheat Blueberry Bars
Made these for a family function and everyone really liked them. I had a few issues though that were my own fault. I decided to cut back on the amount of sugar as suggested by other readers, but I think that made the crust a little less firm. I think that might have been due to the reduced amount of dry ingredients. Next time I might add a little more flour and/or bake the crust a few minutes longer to help the crust stand up better. Also, I wasn't paying attention and ended up using about 1 tablespoon of lemon juice extra. The bars still were great, just very lemony.
Do you have a gluten free version?
I heeded the advice of the people who have made this prior to myself and cut the sugar down to a half cup as advised and I substituted agave syrup for the sugar in the filling. My 2 young children love them. They are quite tasty.
I too thought they were very sweet. Also the taste of lemon almost overpowered the berries. But still very good!
