Total Time: 45 min
Yield: 16 bars



  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Prepare a 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray or butter.
  • In a large bowl, blend brown sugar and butter until well combined and thick, like paste. Add flours, oats, salt and baking powder and mix together with a fork or your fingers combined. It should stick together in small clumps. Press half of oat crumb mixture into the bottom of prepared pan.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together condensed milk, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla. Spread evenly over layer of pressed oat crumbs.
  • Sprinkle the remaining oat crumbs over the top of the lemon layer; do not press down this time.. Bake in a 350˚F oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes and then cut the bars into squares. Refrigerate the bars for several hours before serving. Serve chilled.
