Protein Lemon Squares:
Lemon Cheesecake Frosting
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 9” square baking pan or mini muffin tins.
In a bowl, whisk the first 5 ingredients. In a separate bowl, stir together zest and dry ingredients. Pour wet into dry, and stir just until mixed.
Pour batter into tins, and bake 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of bar comes out clean. Let cool before removing from tins.
Meanwhile, mix together frosting ingredients. Be careful not to add too much cheesecake flavoring – it’s very concentrated! If you don’t have it on hand, you could use 1/2 tsp vanilla or replace the Greek yogurt with cream cheese.
Wait for bars to cool before adding frosting.
