This delicious recipe for Paleo Lemon Bars includes no nuts and no coconut – both common ingredients in many other paleo lemon bars (but also common allergies). Instead it uses cassava flour to keep it grain free and is sweetened with honey and is bursting with flavor from fresh lemon juice and zest.
