Lemon Bars with Oatmeal Cookie Shortbread Crust

Lemon Bars March 30, 2020

These lemon bars have an amazing oatmeal cookie shortbread crust that’s a nice change from the usual super sweet crust! The filling is sweetened with honey and not overly sweet. Most of my readers on my other blog are gluten-free and / or dairy-free so I tried to convert this recipe, just to offer some […]

Whole Orange Fresh Cranberry Muffins

What’s with cheesecake?  It looks perfect until you take it out of the oven.  Or until it cracks… Am I right?  The same with this bread.  I tried so hard to get that beautiful, full, domed top on muffins and quick breads that I love so much(and that whole grain breads are quite often lacking) […]

I hope you’re looking forward to these wonderful bars!  I mentioned them in my pumpkin hot chocolate post because they were in the background.  Although I changed the recipe a little bit before sharing it with you, so they look a little different.  I wanted them a little more oaty, not to mention I wanted […]
