Lighten Up: Low-Fat Lemon Bars

  • Comment Comments (13)

Healthy Toppings

We're dishing up three fresh ideas for serving these yummy bars.

Juicy Fruit

Spoon fresh berries on top for a burst of color and antioxidants.

Quality Thyme

Add a tablespoon of chopped fresh thyme leaves to the flour and sugar when you're making the crust. It sounds odd, but the earthiness of the herb complements the zestiness of the lemon.

Coco Loco

Garnish with toasted coconut. (Prepare flakes in a 350-degree oven in a single layer on a baking sheet for six to eight minutes, stirring once.)

Does anyone know if the butter should be regular or unsalted? Most recipes call for unsalted, but I'm just checking.

These were REALLY good, although mine came out flatter than the picture, as another reviewer mentioned. Despite their flatness, they were still filling (as a dessert), and I will definitely make these again.
