Bianca Lively: Oatmeal Lemon Bars


Oatmeal Lemon Bars

The little baker in me hasn't baked anything since April! What's up with that?? Not normal, at all. And since we were expecting a few family members to visit, I decided to make a yummy treat for everyone to enjoy. I call this a little "Summer-to-Fall" transition dessert. YUM!


  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  1. Heat oven to 375F degrees.
  2. Coat 8x8 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Mix milk, lemon zest and lemon juice in medium bowl until thickened; set aside. Mix remaining ingredients in a separate medium bowl until crumbly.
  4. Press half of the crumbly mixture in pan; bake about 10 minutes or until set.
  5. Spread lemon milk mixture over baked crust. Sprinkle remaining crumbly mixture over the lemon milk mixture, press down gently.
  6. Bake about 20-25 minutes or until edges are golden brown and center is set but soft. Cool completely. Cut 4 rows by 4 rows.

These were just pure amazingness. The softness of the lemon cream in the middle, the hard crunchy granola bar on the bottom, and the top layer of crumbly oats mixed together perfectly
