Reserve 1 cup of oat mixture for streusel topping and set aside.
Press remaing oat mixture into the bottom of an un/greased 9" x 9" square baking dish.

In medium bowl, combine preserves, blueberries, lemon peel, juice and flour. Mix gently.

Bake for 22 - 25 minutes or till light golden brown.

*******Sometimes I add a bit more preserves b/c I like it better........or I double the recipe and bake in a 9 x 13 pan and freeze some for later.
