Lemon Oat Bars

Woo, everypup. It's me, Dave. We're posting one of Mom's favorite recipes, by special request! You won't be sorry giving this a try! All of our friends who have tried it so far are just raving about it - so why not give it a go!?! Ready?

Lemon Oat Bars
By the Ao4

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup packed brown sugar
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
2/3 cup cold butter
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
½ cup lemon juice
1 ½ tsp grated lemon peel (I don’t use any)

In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. (Mom pulses hers in the food processor instead. She says to make sure yours is big enough before trying; I say stand by in case it isn't!) Press 3 cups into a greased 9-inch square baking pan; set remaining mixture aside. Bake crust at 350° for 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the milk, lemon juice and lemon peel (if using). Pour over crust. Sprinkle with remaining oat mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until edges are brown. Cool on wire rack.
Mom thinks this tastes best COLD from the fridge!

Sorry I don't have any cool pictures like Zim did with the Empanadas. Maybe if any of our friends took pictures, they'll share. (Hint, hint!)

Mom says it's really fast and easy and oh, so good! Of course, I wouldn't know....

...I don't get to have Lemon Oat Bars. But I am in position, should any hit the floor.

Happy baking and remember to share with your friends!

  6. Mom made these and she said they're "straight from Heaven". I thought I was straight from Heaven. Heaven must have alot of good stuff in it.

  7. Hi Dave
    Expecting our mum to 'bake' is like waiting for her to help me keep in regular touch with my DWB mates and learn how to take proper photos and videos .. it aint gonna happen !!
    Hope you are all having a fun weekend. We are getting bathed very soon .. YUCK !!!!
    Love from Hammer

  8. We still haven't been able to claw mom into making them. But, I did overhear her telling dad she should try them!

    Woo woo, KA

  9. this looks delicious AND easy, two requirements for when Mom cooks!!

  10. Mom got the stuff for the bars so we are going to make them after we go to the Lake.
    It is supposed to get up to 60+ degrees today so possible I can go swimming..
