    While the crust is baking,heat the juice gently in a medium saucepan.Add the blueberries & vanilla,cook for about 10 minutes or till the berries break down.Sprinkle in the rice flour,stirring constantly till the mixture thickens.

    Spread the blueberry mixture over the crust & sprinkle the reserved oat mixture on top.Bake for about 10 minutes or till the topping starts to brown.
