We make these bars all year long. We switch up the toppings, sometimes using chocolate with crushed toasted nuts or even adding chocolate chips into the batter, but my favorite flavor is lemon. When I saw Meyer lemons on sale at my local grocery store, I couldn’t resist.
Prepare the Cookie Bars
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Line a nine x 13-inch (20×30-centimeter) baking pan with Gefen Parchment Paper and set aside.
2. Mix all cookie bar ingredients well and press into the prepared pan. Bake 22 minutes.
You can swap 2/3 cup almond flour with hazelnut flour. (Make it yourself by grinding filberts or hazelnuts, without the peel, in a food processor!)
Prepare the Lemon Glaze
1. Mix all glaze ingredients until smooth. Pour over the bars while they’re still hot. Spread evenly and score into bars. Let cool and enjoy. Freezes well!
