Delicious Coconut Lemon Bars

Jump to recipe


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.




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



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.

Cover an 18×18 cm (7×7 inch) tray with baking paper and press the mixture down to create an even layer. Bake for 10 minutes while you prepare the lemon filling.


For the filling

Mix the eggs with the juice from 2 lemons, sweetener and nut butter of your choice. Add the desiccated coconut and lemon zest and mix thoroughly.

Carefully pour the mixture over the crust and bake for 15-18 minutes.

Let it cool down completely and cut into bars.

Optionally, sprinkle powdered sugar on top.


Enjoy! 🙂
