In a small bowl, whisk together flour, oat flour (if you use more honey then use 1 cup oats instead of ¾ cup) and baking powder and set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter, eggs, honey, vanilla and milk. Mix in lemon zest or extract. Add flour mixture and mix just until combine. Stir in blueberries.
Spread batter evenly into prepared pan. Sprinkle with crumb topping.
