Contributed by Kaitlin, recipe by Just Jessie B

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Filling:

  • 3 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • ¾ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 3 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp lemon zest

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Line an 8×8” baking dish with a piece of parchment paper large enough to go up all four sides of the dish.
  3. Mix the crust ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Transfer the dough to the baking dish, pressing evenly into the bottom.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes, and then remove from the oven.
  5. Combine the filling ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour the filling over top of the partially baked crust, and place in the over to bake for an additional 25 minutes.
  6. Allow the bars to cool, then refrigerate until chilled (approximately 4 hours). Lift onto a cutting board using the sides of the parchment paper, and slice into squares.
  7. Enjoy!
