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.

And wow, I’m so glad I did! These baked lemon donuts are absolutely amazing. The flavor is delicious – so fresh and citrusy.  I think these would be a lovely thing to make for Mother’s Day brunch!
