Paleo Lemon Bars
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.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place a large enough piece of parchment paper in an 8×8 baking dish to create handles up the sides of the dish.
To make crust, place ghee, honey, vanilla and egg in the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix on medium setting until combined.
Add in cassava flour, salt and zest. Mix once more until just incorporated.
Press crust mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
While crust is baking, add filling ingredients to the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix until combined. Pour filling ingredients over the baked crust and place it back in the oven for 25 minutes or until baked through.
Place lemon bars on a cooling rack until completely cooled, then transfer to the refrigerator to chill overnight.
