Tart and Tasty Lemon Bars (Gluten-Free/No Refined Sugar/Nut and Grain-Free Options)

P1050891

I picked over two pounds of Meyer lemons last week which could only mean one thing, I needed recipe for lemon bars!

I prefer a more tart, than sweet, filling. I also love a buttery crust. Usually lemon bars are to sweet for me, so if you like them sweeter, use less lemon juice 🙂

I found two recipes to help with my version of paleo lemon bars, one from Against All Grain, and another from Paleo Cupboard.

After reading the comments of Against All Grain’s version, I decided not to use her recipe because the crust was made with coconut flour. I like coconut flour but felt it would end up being to dense for my taste. I did like that her filling used more lemon juice, so I ended up using more than Paleo Cupboard recommended.

My first batch didn’t even last 24 hours, so be prepared to quickly make a second batch!
