These lemon brownies add a bit of sunshine to any day. I know most people prefer lemon treats in the spring and summer, but I actually like them best in the winter when I need to engage my senses with bright smells, tastes and color. These lemon brownies check all those boxes for me.
Another thing I like about this recipe is that you can make them with whole white wheat flour (like I do) OR you can make them with all purpose flour if that is more your thing. I will share instructions for what to do with both types of flour as well as what you can do to tone down the lemon flavor.
