The best of both worlds! If you like lemon bars and oatmeal cookies, this will satisfy both cravings at once. The hint of almond along with these other flavors, builds a light and fresh flavor that no other lemon bar has.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.

  • Mix brown sugar and butter in a large bowl until combined. Mix flour, oats, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add to butter mixture and mix until combined. Press half of the oat mixture in the bottom of the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

  • While crust is baking, mix condensed milk, lemon juice, lemon extract, and almond extract in a small bowl.

  • Pour lemon mixture over the baked crust and spread evenly. Top with remaining oat mixture and gently pat into lemon mixture.

  • Return to the oven and bake until filling has set and top crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely, about 30 minutes. Place in the refrigerator until chilled, about 2 hours. Cut into 16 bars.
