I tried this recipe for the first time last month on a very special occasion: my mom's 77th birthday.  Everyone loved it - even my children. The bars are great served warm, with vanilla ice cream.

Bottom layer:  2 c. quick oats
                     3/4 c. all-purpose flour
                     3/4 c. light brown sugar, packed
                     1/4 t.baking soda
                     1/4 t. salt
Mix well. Add 10 T. melted butter and 1 t. vanilla. Press into greased  9x13" pan. Set aside.

Middle layer:  3 1/2 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
                    1/2  t. almond extract
                    3/4 c. sugar
                    3 T. all-purpose flour
                    1/2 t. nutmeg
Mix ingredients gently. Pour over bottom layer and spread evenly.

Top layer:  1 c. all-purpose flour
                1/2 c.  light brown sugar, packed
                1/2 c. butter
Mix ingredients til crumbly. Sprinkle over blueberries.
Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350 and bake for another 20 minutes.
