Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, yogurt, and butter.
In a separate bowl, mix the oat flour, whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Sift the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir the batter just to blend. Do not overbeat. Fold in the blueberries and transfer the batter to the prepared pan.
For the topping, in a small bowl, stir together the sugar, walnuts, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the batter.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Cut into 9 squares and serve warm.
