It’s pretty obvious that fall is my favorite season and I’m a big fan of the classic combination chocolate and peanut butter, but even I can’t deny that summer fruit flavors hit the spot in baked goods. This lemon blueberry combo is *almost* delicious enough to make me stop missing fall.

These bars honestly turned out better than I ever could have hoped. They are moist, soft, fluffy, and bursting with flavor. Lemon and blueberry is such a refreshing flavor combination so this recipe is very suitable for these hot summer days! It isn’t too sweet either so you can have one of these bars as a snack or dessert. Let me know what you think, I hope you love them!
