Lemon Squares

These are light, cakey and moist. Almost like a lemon coffee cake. And so easy to make. I usually have one with scrambled eggs for breakfast. Or as an afternoon snack with some tea and fruit.

 

These are 96 calories, or 3 points each (7 points for two). Recipe makes 18 squares.

Total Cook/Prep time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup Bisquick (Heart Smart version in the white box)
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 3/4 cup non-fat greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • For the glaze:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • juice of 1/2 lemon

Directions

Preheat oven to 350

Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with cooking spray

Mix skim milk, yogurt, sugar, eggs, extracts in a bowl using a hand-held electric mixer (low speed about 1 minute)

Add the Bisquick to the liquid mixture, and mix with a spoon to combine

Pour the batter into the baking pan

Bake 25 minutes

Allow the cake to cool 1 hour

Cut into 18 squares

Remove squares and place them on a sheet of parchment paper

Mix the glaze ingredients together

Spoon just a small drizzle of the glaze throughout the 18 squares over the parchment paper

Transfer the squares to a serving dish. 

Alternatively, once the glaze is set, you can freeze the squares in a ziplock bag for future meals.
