Before I get into the recipe I want to share a few things wit you.

I have great news!

I am working really hard on a few projects so that you can benefit from my recipes and blog even more.

  • I am developing an app where you will be able to create shopping lists according to the recipes you will like to cook and bake. The app will have recipes that will cater those on a vegan, dairy free, gluten free diet.
  • I am including a Meal Plans section to my blog. Once a week ( or so I hope) I will be developing a meal plan. The meal plan will include a shopping list and alternatives for certain ingredients for those following specific diets.
  • I am including a conversion table for those using the metric system. I know in the US we use a totally different approach when it comes to measuring ingredients so I will include that too for those in Europe and other places.
  • I am going to improve my news letter, adding some more healthful information, as well as share some tidbits about the process of blogging.
  • I am going to try very hard to start incorporating both English and Spanish videos on certain recipes. A lot of work goes into this but it is something that I am really excited about and want to start doing.

Well there you have it. A lot of projects in the horizon for the upcoming weeks but I hope that many of you can benefit from them.

Onto the recipe.

Have you ever made your own bars before? I love making snacks of this type and these Superfood Lemon Bars are to die for.

Wether they are bars, bites, or balls having healthy, raw snacks that can both work as a dessert or as a snack it is easier than you think. Truly the only thing you need is a good quality food processor. Granted it can be a bit expensive but you if you are going to start making things of this nature, as well as nut butters, you need a good quality food processor. Cheap ones won’t last too long and you will end up wasting your $30-$40 dollars in the long run. Trust me on this, it happened to me twice!

These bars are a superfood. Besides having really healthy ingredients I also added turmeric powder, which is a very powerful antioxidant. Turmeric powder is used in Indian cuisine a lot but once in a while I like to use this powder to color my desserts, especially when using lemon.

Well I hope you get to make these Superfood Lemon Bars. They are sensational to say the least so go to your kitchen and make these, you will thank me later :-)

Enjoy!

Superfood Lemon Bars

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 12 bars

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

Bars

Topping

Directions:

Line a square 8x8 baking pan with unbleached parchment paper and set aside.

Add the bar ingredients to your food processor and pulse until all the ingredients come together. If they still don't just add 1-2 tbs extra of water.

With a spatula, press mixtures onto the prepared baking pan making sure it is evenly distributed.

In a small bowl add the topping ingredients and mix through. Pour this mixture over the bars and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour for the topping to solidify.

Cut into squares and keep leftovers refrigerated.

  1. Miryam muy rica la receta….voy a hacerla, además con fibra que esto me interesa….para desayunar es perfecto…besos y si por allí lo celebráis feliz Pascua .

  2. I am a sucker for oatmeal. This looks like a great dish to end a light meal.

  3. this looks so good.. so similar, you’re right. i see you used fresh apples :-)

  4. loving this. bookmarked

  5. Que buenísima pinta tiene y que fotos tan sugerentes.

    Besos.

  6. We eat oatmeal for breakfast all most every morning. I’ve been looking for ways to make it more interesting. I’ll have to add this apple pie version to the mix. I was also thinking a carrot cake version with shredded carrots, coconut milk, toasted pecans and maybe raisins!

    Thanks for the recipe!

  7. How do you create the nutritional values? And where do you get the information for them? Let me know!

  8. Elizabeth,

    I go to caloriecount.com

    Thanks for visiting my blog!!

  9. Looks yummy. Is the ‘sugar’ in the directions actually the maple syrup?

  10. Do you think it’s possible to freeze portions, as its only me and saves making it daily? Or how long will it be ok to leave in the fridge?
    Love this recipe, just made a big batch. May have to eat it all

  11. Looks amazing, but sugar is mentioned like three times and we are calling for maple syrup . Can you please update with promotions. Also can we all search to makes this less glycemic a recipe? 

  12. The flax seed meal is listed in the ingredients but not the directions.

  13. Miryam, This sound positively lovely and I will try it out on a grandchild who resist eating breakfast. I have made similar concoctions but have sauteed the fruit in the same pan with the oats or farina. This makes it a one pan affair and easier to clean up before heading to work.
