(Pseudo) Pi Day

This is definitely not pie.  But, it is the closest I am going to come to it at this point in the day.  I didn’t even make it on Pi Day… this is, actually, a coincidence.  One, which, I do not think can be chalked up to any interesting mathematical concept.  Really, this is what I would call this a buckle, or some kind of crumble.

Blueberry Oat Thing

Bottom Layer

  • 4 cups of frozen blueberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  • 4-6 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups oats and/or granola
  • nuts
  • dried fruit

1.  Bring the bottom layer ingredients to a simmer in a saucepan until the liquid is slightly reduced and thickened.  You could add some corn starch as well to expedite this or make it as thick as you like. Butter a 13×9 glass baking pan.

2.  Mix all the Topping Layer ingredients together and sprinkle over the top of the bottom layer.  Bake at 375 till the blueberries are bubbling and the topping is browned.
