Whole Grain, Honey Sweetened Raspberry Lemonade Bars

I will warn you – I could not control myself with the camera with these.  Especially not after this, the second batch, because by then I knew they were amazing.  So I’ll also warn you that these bars are just as irresistible to eat as they are to look at!

These are slightly more tart than regular lemon bars but they’re incredibly rich.  They aren’t your average lemon bars, but I guess the whole grain flour and the honey in the filling might be why.  Those two are definitely what make these awesome though.  Oh yeah, and the raspberries!

It’s not raspberry season here yet, but I know it is in other places so I thought it would be a good time to post these, even though I made them with frozen berries.  But secretly, I was just too excited about this recipe to hold onto it Whole Grain, Honey Sweetened Raspberry Lemonade Bars  You could use fresh berries as well, just make sure the amount of pulp and juice is the same because fresh berries will measure differently than frozen.

This recipe is how we like these best, but they need to be kept chilled as the filling is very gooey and will be too soft if left at room temperature.  If you’d rather enjoy these at room temperature up the whole grain flour in the filling to 1/3 C and the filling will be firm enough at room temperature to hold their shape.  We prefer them gooey though Whole Grain, Honey Sweetened Raspberry Lemonade Bars

I’m feeling a bit scatterbrained(and rushed, among other things) today, so I hope you wont mind if I just leave you with some more pictures Whole Grain, Honey Sweetened Raspberry Lemonade Bars  And the recipe, of course!
