Ingredients

Crust Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ¼ cup granulated monk fruit
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ½ cup coconut flour

Lemon Filling Ingredients

  • ½ cup powdered monk fruit
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Juice from 1 Lemon
  • ½ teaspoon arrowroot powder

Instructions

For the Crust

  • Preheat the oven to 350℉.
  • Line a 9" x 5" loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Place the softened butter and monk fruit in a medium bowl, and use an electric hand mixer to cream the ingredients.
  • Add in the almond and coconut flours. 
  • With a rubber spatula, mix manually until dough forms.
  • Press the crust down into the parchment paper-lined loaf pan. 
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven. Poke holes in the crust with a fork and set to the side.

For the Filling

  • While the crust is cooling, in a medium bowl, combine the lemon filling ingredients. 
  • Mix until well incorporated.
  • Then pour over the crust. Bake for 15-20 minutes more.
  • Next, put the pan in the refrigerator for 45 minutes to allow the lemon loaf to harden and cool before slicing into bars.
  • Cut into 10 bars and enjoy!

You can try using Swerve Confectioners Sweetener and see how that comes out.

If you are looking for the classic, sugar crazy, lemon bars… this is not it! This version of lemon bars is much more reasonable than what you would normally find in a bakery or cafe. You won’t have that sugar rush or headache after! The flavors much more focus on the lemon than the sweetness, which I think is a good thing.
