We've become a little obsessed with these fruit bars. This version we made for bookclub and the raspberry and lime combo was amazing. Sweet and tart with a little floral note from the almond extract. The graham flour was an experiment and it gave the bars a nice chew, and a slightly more dense bite which pared well with some Vanilla Ice cream! —Rebecca and Ruth
