Lemon Coconut Bars | THM: S

Save for later!

You know those lemon bars with the shortbread-like crust, lemony filling, and a dust of icing sugar on top? That’s the recipe that inspired these Lemon Coconut Bars and I’ve got to tell you – I love this low-carb, gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy free (if you use coconut oil instead of butter) keto and Trim Healthy Mama-friendly version just as much!

An easy-peasy filling is made by beating together:

Sprinkle on some flaked coconut and….

Store them in an air-tight container and keep them in the fridge or freezer.

Yield: 28-30 servings

  1. This is delicious, but baking in a 9×13 makes bars about 1/8″ thick. I am making a second batch this time in an 8×8. I have needed 1/2 cupish coconut oil both times.
