Lemon Bars


Prep Time: 10-15 min | Cook Time: 35-40 min | Yield: 12 lemon bars


Ingredients:


Crust:

  • 1.5 cup almond flour

  • 3 tbsp room temperature ghee

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • Pinch of sea salt

Filling:

  • 4 organic cage-free eggs

  • Zest of two lemons or ~2 tbsp lemon zest

  • 1/2 cup organic honey

  • 1/2 cup organic lemon juice

  • 2 tsp coconut flour


Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.

  • Make your crust first. Mix the almond flour, ghee, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt together until well combined, then pat down to make an even layer in a baking dish lined with parchment paper. I used a 9x9" baking dish.

  • Bake for 15 minutes or until it turns golden brown. Once the crust is finished, set aside and let cool.

  • As the crust is baking, whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, honey, lemon juice, and coconut flour to make the filling.

  • Pour the filling over the crust and bake for 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked through.

  • Remove from oven, let fully cool (refrigerated for an hour or so is best!), sprinkle on some organic powdered sugar (optional), cut into squares and enjoy!
