For a change in traditional lemon bars I made Lemon Oatmeal Bars with lemon pie filling. The results are mouthwatering!
When I think of lemon I think of Spring. Everything is new and fresh in the Springtime as are lemons. I love lemon bars. A lot. Basically, if it has lemon in it, I’ll love it. And these Lemon Oatmeal Bars are no exception. The Lucky Leaf Fruit Filling makes them even better! It’s full of perfect lemon flavor and I trust them to know how to do fruit filling right.
These Lemon Oatmeal Bars are super easy to make which is how I do things. The crust is baked before adding the lemon Lucky Leaf fruit filling and topping with more crust crumbs. Bake again and let set until cool and you’ve got a refreshing and comforting dessert that everyone will love. It’s perfect for spring potlucks and picnics.
- Crust and Topping:
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup oats
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon coarse Kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup (2 sticks) cold butter, cut into pieces
- 1 can lemon Lucky Leaf fruit filling
- Preheat the oven to 375. Spray a square 9x13 baking dish with nonstick
- In your food processor, or with a pastry cutter, combine the
- crust/topping ingredients until pea-sized pieces of butter remain.
- Reserve 1 ½ cups of the crumbs for the topping (chill in the
- refrigerator until needed), and press the remainder of the crumbs
- firmly against the bottom of the baking dish. Bake crust for 20-30
- After the crust has baked, remove from the oven.
- Reduce oven temperature to 350. Spread the fruit filling over the hot
- crust. Sprinkle the reserved crumbs over the fruit filling and bake for
- an additional 15-20 minutes until topping is golden brown.
- Let cool on the counter for at least two hours to set before slicing into
