Orange Iced Blackberry Breakfast Bars

Bars:
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup bran flakes, crushed
1/2 cup wheat or graham flour
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda

3/4 cup butter, melted
2 Tbsp Orange Blossom Honey
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Filling:
2 cups fresh, or frozen Blackberries
1/4 cup Orange Blossom Honey
1/3 cup orange juice
2 Tbsp cornstarch

Icing:
1/4 butter, melted
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 tsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Zest from 1//2 orange

To assemble:
Line a 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper, leaving a slight overhang. Set aside.

In a medium sized saucepan, place blackberries and honey. Cook over medium heat until bubbly. Whisk orange juice and cornstarch together until smooth. Slowly add juice mixture to berries while stirring constantly, until thick. Remove from heat, and set aside.

In a medium sized bowl, using a fork, stir together dry ingredients. In a separate container, stir melted butter, honey, and vanilla together. Add butter mixture to dry ingredients, stirring with fork to lighten.

Press half of crumb mixture into the bottom of prepared pan. Spread blackberry mixture evenly on top. Top with remaining crumb mixture, pressing lightly to finish.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool. Cut into equal portions and drizzle with icing.

To make icing, whisk all ingredients until smooth.

Makes 8-12 bars
