  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 4 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl stir together the butter, brown sugar, 2 teaspoons lemon zest, flour, oats, walnuts, and baking powder; mix well.
