Lemon Brownies (No Chocolate Involved)

Updated: Aug 1, 2020

Do you remember Jenny Jones, the former talk show host? Now she has a cooking channel on YouTube. I found these on her blog and made a bunch of changes to the recipe.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, as people are giving, helping and caring, I like to bake and share to show my appreciation.

My son brings my groceries every week. In return, I give him surprise baked goods as gifts of appreciation. Sometimes he surprises me and calls at the last minute. I found this crazy easy lemon treat that is so delicious. Everyone loves lemon. I baked these in 20 minutes, packaged them up, and placed them in his trunk.

So simple, you can just mix all these ingredients in the baking pan. Very low on saturated fat and not a whole lot of sugar. Eat and enjoy!

3 Tablespoons avocado oil or other flavourless oil
