Delicious Coconut Lemon Bars

Yum

Here’s a delicious and easy-to-make lemon bar recipe.

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with lemon desserts, and I’ve always loved coconut, so these yummy lemon bars have quickly become one of my favorite desserts.

 

I mixed gluten-free oat flour and desiccated coconut for the crust, but if you want to make it a paleo-friendly recipe, you can use coconut flour instead.

Also, to thicken up the filling, I added some more desiccated coconut and some tahini. However, you can use another nut butter you like.

You can also add an extra egg yolk in order to achieve a stronger yellow color, but I didn’t. Check out my coconut macaroon recipe where you can use your left-over egg white.

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 1 1/3 cup oat flour
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons plant-based milk of your choice
  • Sweetener of your choice to taste (If you use a liquid sweetener you may need less milk)
  • Cinnamon – optional

For the filling

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk – optional
  • 1/3 cup desiccated coconut
  • ¼ cup sweetener of your choice
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons nut butter of your choice
  • Powdered sugar for decoration – optional

 

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).

 

For the crust

Mix the coconut oil with oat flour and desiccated coconut using a fork. Add the milk little by little until you have a mixture that stays together when you press it together.
