I LOVE dessert recipes that taste amazing and that don’t take extra work. And, that’s exactly how I’d describe these Lemon Oatmeal Bars!
This recipe is from Betty Crocker from many years ago. This is what my mother would have me make growing up because it was easy to manage and soon became a staple dessert that you would never guess is made from a mix. If you’re looking to kick it up a notch from the traditional cookie, give this recipe a shot!
These lemon bars are layered with an oatmeal base, lemon filling, and another oatmeal layer on the top. It’s a perfect balance of flavors. So go ahead, pour yourself a glass of milk, sneak a bar or two, and enjoy. Mmmmmm Mmmmmm – Good!
