Lemon Coconut Bars | THM: S

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!

This Lemon Coconut Bars could not be more simple. The “shortbread” crust is made from just 3 ingredients:

Normally, I don’t like to use straight almond flour in my baking recipes, since it’s quite calorie dense. However, this Lemon Coconut Bar recipe produces 28-30 bars, so it’s really not that much almond flour per serving. Besides, the crust is perfectly shortbread-like this way!

An easy-peasy filling is made by beating together:

Sprinkle on some flaked coconut and….

voila!

Lemony bars that are perfect for a snack or dessert.

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

Yield: 28-30 servings
