Do you love lemon bars? I don’t. Well, at least I didn’t until I made these. And now? Well, now I do. These bars will melt in your mouth!
Recipe: Paleo Lemon Bars
4 cups almond flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour or arrowroot starch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup pure maple syrup or honey
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup coconut oil, melted
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease a 9×13 pan with coconut oil. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, then press into the greased 9×13 pan. Bake in oven for about 20 minutes, until beginning to turn golden brown. While that’s cooking, prepare lemon topping:
3/4 cup pure maple syrup or honey
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 TBSP lemon zest
5 TBSP tapioca flour or arrowroot starch
Beat together all ingredients. When crust is ready, pour lemon topping over crust (note: it will be liquid–it’s ok!), then bake another 20 minutes or so, until set. For best results, chill before eating.
