Meyer Lemon Marmalade Breakfast Bars

Hungry Tigress ( and Hitchhiking to Heaven ( turned me on to the Meyer lemon a few years back.  A cross between lemons and Mandarin Oranges, Meyer lemons taste sweet and "floral" with a hint of orange.  Truly a delectable fruit.
Froggy taking a zen moment contemplating the deliciousness of meyer lemons....
So it was this week-end that my kids wanted a yummy breakfast bar one morning.  When the kids beckon, I start lookin' in the pantry for what I might find to make up some scrumtiousness....
What resulted was a scrumptious, yumptious, good for the body breakfast bar!
