Skinny Lemon Bars

*To the tune of the Batman theme song* Lemon lemon lemon lemon LEMON BARS! Liz’s favorite. Do you like them too? Do you randomly get cravings for them but know they aren’t really that great for your fitness goals? Join the club!

So here’s the solution. Try out these bad boys instead. They’ll help satiate your lemon bar craving but keep you slim and trim at the same time. To be eaten in moderation, as always; just because it’s a healthier “clean” version of the treat, doesn’t mean it’s not still a little treat. 😉

But thank goodness this little clean lemon bar has come to save the day for us fitness folks. Now when life gives you lemons, just make these bars!!
