  1. Lemon is so refreshing–you could even lower the calorie count on these bars by replacing the butter with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter FF Spread (5 calories/TBSP)!

  14. Lemon is always one of the most refreshing tastes for desserts. And lemon bars have long been a popular dessert choice. But here we offer something a little different than the usual lemon bars. Give this recipe for Chewy Lemon Nut Bars a try. These bars have oats in the crust giving them their chewy texture and chopped pecans give crunch. A great combination for the creamy lemon center.
