The creation of this recipe goes back many years to my summers during university. I would go back to my hometown every summer and worked at an ice cream store, which was quite possibly my favourite job ever. One year, I also had the opportunity to work at the President’s Choice Cooking School. We ran birthday parties and cooking classes and I learned a ton. Not only about teaching little kids how to ice a cake but also about how certain ingredients work together in a recipe. Thankfully, I saved a bunch of the recipes from this gig and recently went through them to gain some inspiration.
Thank goodness I did because this Raspberry Lemon Nut Bar was loosely based on a Maple Blueberry version that was found in the pile of old recipes. I loved the idea of a healthy and portable snack, especially if it was easier to make and tastier than the original. It took me a couple of tries but I think I finally nailed it!
This recipe is perfect for spring as it’s super light and refreshing. Raspberry and lemon are just meant to be together, don’t you think? In addition to this wonderful flavour combination, this is a great protein- and fibre-rich snack option. I hope this becomes a household favourite for you!

[…] You will also need a food processor or high-speed blender for this recipe. I prefer using a food processor (although they can be a pain to clean if you don’t have a dishwasher) because you don’t need as much liquid to get the machine going. That makes it perfect for these black bean brownies or other recipes like hummus and raspberry lemon nut bars. […]
