Lemon Brownies

These bars are called Lemon Brownies because they have the thick and fudgy texture of a brownie! They are made with white chocolate and are full of citrus flavor!

I love baked goods (no surprise there). Every recipe I post, I truly love – otherwise, I wouldn’t share them with you. But I definitely play favorites. And these Lemon Brownies are one of the best things I have ever made. I can’t believe I am saying that about a recipe that does not include chocolate or peanut butter, but it is true. I love, love LOVE these lemon brownies. I literally could not stop eating them. I never considered myself a lemon dessert person, but I guess I am!! TheBetterHalf’s love for lemon must be rubbing off on me.

I think I might have spoiled TheBetterHalf with all of the baking I do. Let me explain…we almost always have something for him to bring to work for breakfast. I package up muffins and breads and donuts in packs of two and pop them in the freezer so that he can grab one each morning on his way out the door. However I haven’t been baking as much recently and was out of town last weekend, so our frozen baked good reserves are totally depleted! He was actually complaining (jokingly, of course) that he had nothing to bring for breakfast!! Spoiled. So spoiled. I kindly reminded him that there are markets / bodegas / coffee shops on nearly every corner in NYC and that they all have a lovely selection of breakfast items. But it did lead me to make some muffins this past weekend to keep him happy – Orange Chocolate Chip Yogurt Muffins! And I’m really not complaining – I love having someone enjoy my baked goods! …

We have been absolutely obsessed with this Orange Yogurt Cake for the past few weeks. I seriously can’t stop making (and eating) it. The texture is just so amazing – super moist from a full cup of Greek yogurt. And then to make it even better, an orange simple syrup is poured over the warm cake. So good! I made a lime version of this the other day, and I can’t wait to try a lemon version too. This is definitely my current go-to breakfast / snack / dessert recipe!

Meyer Lemon – up until recently I didn’t really know what this fruit was. I had heard of them and seen them on many restaurant menus, but I had never actually researched meyer lemons or bought them. And then I saw a bag of the gorgeous things at Trader Joes the other day and all of that changed. I am now obsessed with Meyer Lemons, and in particular with these meyer lemon mini muffins!
