Since a meal of Brussels sprouts, spinach and broccoli is out (at least with my kids), I thought key lime might be a nice and naturally green addition to our menu this year. Plus, we are huge Key Lime Pie fans in our house — and this recipe just makes it all happen in bar form. We like that even better because you can eat it with your hands.
We are Neanderthals after all. We love to eat with our hands. Oooga.
Even if you ignore St. Paddy’s Day, you’ll want to bookmark these bars. They’re perfectly sweet and tart any time of year and super easy to make. They keep and travel well. And they’re heavenly when slathered with whipped cream and a twist of…you guessed it, lime.
p.s. If you can’t find real key limes, regular limes are delicious too!
