Rhubarb Almond Bars

I first noticed rhubarb at the farmer’s market last year and ever since I can’t resist picking up this pink produce when it’s in season. If you don’t know what rhubarb is, it’s a pink celery look-a-like vegetable. Rhubarb has a sour flavor that’s overwhelming on its own, but tastes so good when baked into a sweet treat!

I love this Rhubarb Almond Bar recipe because it’s so simple and only uses one bowl. I use my standing mixer to combine all the ingredients, except the rhubarb, which makes it even easier! And there is an alternative for the sweetener, so you can make them sugar-free if desired. Note that if you use the sugar-free option your bars will be much lighter in color.
