    Normally my family balks at healthy recipes, but my husband was coming back for more of these, and today finished them off (so much for my evening dessert!). I'm posting this to keep handy for myself.

      I am reviewing not the whole bar but just the crust, I used Lemon Bars for the topping which turned out well but wanted a healthier crust so I tried this. The almonds make this crust fantastic! It is the perfect pair with lemon.

      I also increased the butter to 6 Tablespoons (3/8 cup.) I was a bit concerned, because my lemon topping did not get fluffy. It was basically the texture of orange juice, with a bit of froth. I only have a handheld electric mixer, so maybe it was too wimpy. My bars don't have the thick layer of lemony custard I associate with lemon bars, but they are nice and lemony and nutty and chewey. Next time I might increase amount of the lemon topping.

      I loved these!! i am a pretty big health nut, and these were wonderful as well as nutritious. I did bump up the butter content to 1/3 cup as you suggested, and they turned out great
