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.
