    Coconut Lemon Bars Recipe

    Coconut Lemon Bars
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Recipe Description:

    Classic Lemon Bars without the guilt. Dairy free, grain free, nut free, no refined sugar, Paleo, gluten free and powerfully lemony.

    Recipe Instructions:

    Preheat oven to 350. In a food processor combine eggs, coconut oil, salt and honey. Mix to combine. Add coconut flour and 1/4 cup of coconut chips. Again, process until well combined. Transfer to a bowl and stir in remaining coconut chips. Grease a glass Pyrex baking dish with coconut oil. My dish is 7×11 or 2.2 QT/2 L. Press cookie batter base evenly into dish. Bake for 18 minutes at 350 until the edges are just starting to brown and center is cooked through.

    Whisk lemon juice, eggs, salt and honey together in a sauce pan. Slowly add coconut oil while whisking over medium heat. DO NOT TURN YOUR BACK on this. Whisk until it starts to thicken. When it starts to thicken it gets thick FAST. Remove from heat. It should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Strain the filling through a fine mesh to remove any cooked egg bits. Top the crust and refrigerate.

    The link to Wilderness Family Naturals is in my original post on my blog. http://gfrealfood.com/2012/01/17/coconut-lemon-bars-the-paleo-way/ You can also get them at Tropical Traditions but I don't think they are quite as good. That said - it is cheaper at TT as the shipping was significantly less. Maybe you are in a part of the country where shipping from WFN isn't an arm and a leg. Reply
  • Thank you! I can't wait to try these. Reply

    Can the recipe be made without the coconut chips? Reply

      Probably. You could sub the coconut chips for dried no sugar added coconut flakes. Let me know how it turns out if you try it this way. Reply

    How are the two different? When I looked up coconut chips, the package labeled such contained coconut flakes. Reply

      The only difference is size. The stuff you see in the grocery stores is shredded and fine to varying degrees. Coconut chips are what's pictured on top of the lemon bars in the picture. They are really big flakes or "chips". The ingredients should be the same. Reply
  • Made these with unsweetened shredded coconut from Tropical Traditions. Came out great! I think this is the best lemon curd I've ever had. Thanks so much! This is a keeper to make for my gluten free and Paleo friends! Reply

    I am so happy to hear that you liked them. And good to know they worked out well with shredded coconut instead of the chips. Reply
