Friday Recipe of the week – Lemon Oat Bars

Another, yes another recipe from Pinterest. These are quite tasty too. So, now I make lemon bars, which are tart, lemon brownies which are mellow and cake like and now lemon oat bars which is a bar with a gooey tart center. You’ll have to let me know which you like better. They are all so different, yet all quite good. They were even good a few days later too. I took this picture off of Pinterest since it looked a lot more appetizing that the one I took.

LEMON OAT BARSLemon Oat Bars – 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk, 2 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, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Heat oven to 375ºF degrees. Coat 8×8 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray. Mix milk, lemon zest and lemon juice in medium bowl until thickened; set aside. Mix remaining ingredients in medium bowl until crumbly.

Press half of the crumbly mixture in pan; bake about 10 minutes or until set.

Spread lemon milk mixture over baked crust. Sprinkle remaining crumbly mixture over the lemon milk mixture, press down gently. Bake about 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown and center is set but soft. Cool completely.
