Choose Healthy Dessert Ingredients
We have a love affair with desert in this house. It seems like no meal is quite complete without a little something sweet at the end. I try and find creative ways to add whole grains, fruits, and veggies into deserts that my kids enjoy. Whole grain lemon fig bars are my solution to kids who want dessert and moms who want their kids to eat healthier (if you want a more decadent lemon bar recipe, try out my homemade lemon squares with shortbread crust).
This is a very simple recipe and you can change the type of fruit spread you use to suit your own family’s tastes. I enjoyed the lemon fig because it is slightly more exotic than some of the jams you normally find in the grocery store.

If you would like to use the same flavor fruit spread I did for these whole grain lemon fig bars, you can head over to Amazon for Fischer & Wieser lemon fig fruit spread. They also have a ton of other exotic jam flavors that would work for this recipe! For a deliciously decadent desert serve topped with icecream or homemade whipped cream!
