Servings 16 squares


  • 120 g butter
  • 125 g brown sugar 150 ml
  • 100 g rolled oats 250 ml or 1 cup
  • 100 g wheat flour 200 ml
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Lemon filling

  • 400 g condensed milk sweetened
  • 75 ml lemon juice usually 1 medium sized lemon
  • 3 tsp lemon zest


  • Heat up the oven to 175°C (350°F)
  • Softened up the butter in the microwave for around 30 sec then mix it together with the sugar, oats, flour and baking powder
  • Use a baking pan of around 20*20cm (8*8 inches) and line it with parchement paper. Add 2/3 of the oat mix to the pan and press it out evenly
  • Take another bowl and mix the condensed milk with lemon juice and the zest
  • Spread out evenly in the pan and finish by adding the remaining oat mixture on top
  • Bake for 20 min then let it cool before you cut it in squares
  • You can store it either in the fridge or in the freezer. I actually prefer to eat it really cold straight from the freezer
