How To Make ‘Lemon Weetbix Slices’ – Great Sweet Treat Recipe!


Are you tired of making the same old recipes you’ve been making for years? I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of making chocolate chip cookies and banana bread. Luckily, I’ve found a healthy, delicious and somewhat non-traditional dessert recipe that you’ll definitely want to add to your recipe box.

Vanya from the VJ Cooks blog created a recipe for lemon weetbix slices that are moist, delicious and even pretty healthy. In case you’ve never heard of Weetbix, it’s an extremely high-protein, high-fiber grain popular in Australia and New Zealand. And it turns out that Weetbix are the perfect base for these salivating bars.

Not a fan of lemon? You can easily replace the lemon frosting with a passion fruit frosting. The best part about this recipe is that it only takes 10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to bake. So if you need to whip up a homemade dessert in half an hour or less, this recipe is for you.
