Paleo Lemon Bars Recipe
- ¼ cup of honey
- ½ cup of coconut oil, melted
- 1 cup coconut flour
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup honey
- 2 tsp. lemon zest
- 2 tsp. coconut flour
- 1 cup lemon juice (Preferably Fresh)
- Preheat an oven 180°C (350°F)
- Grease a ~8×8 inch pan with coconut oil.
- In a bowl, combine the coconut flour, coconut oil, honey, and salt. The mixture should come together and look like a dough.
- Press the dough into the prepared pan so that it is evenly spread.
- Place into the preheated oven and cook for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
- Once done, allow to cool for about 30 minutes and turn the oven down to 160°C (325°F)
- In a bowl, add the coconut flour, eggs, honey, lemon zest & the lemon juice. Whisk together until the ingredients are well combined.
- Pour the mix over the top of the crust and return to the oven for about 20-30 minutes or until the mix is set.
- Allow to cool before placing in the fridge for about 6-12 hours.
- Cut the bars into rectangles or squares.
- Serve & Enjoy
- Gluten free and Paleo baking can be tricky so if it doesn’t work out make sure you followed each step correctly and weighed your ingredients.
- This Paleo lemon bars recipe is best done using fresh ingredients so if you’re able to try and use fresh lemons. If you only have one lemon, you can always top up with the bottled juice.
- If you don’t end up eating all in one sitting, I would recommend keeping them in a sealed container in the fridge. I would personally keep the lemon bars for up to a week before discarding. However, they’re likely to last a bit longer than that.
