Squares

Lemon tarte? Lemon square? Lemon bar? Lemon... thing? Honestly unsure what to call this, but it's low in carbs, suuuper lemon-ey (it's a word), and delicious.

We had an abundance of lemons laying around one morning and rather than letting them go to waste, we wanted to create something that was satisfying and guilt-free. So, here you go! Enjoy the lemon tarte-square-items :)

INGREDIENTS:

For the crust:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon stevia
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg

For the filling:

  • 6 eggs
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat the oven to 350F, and spray an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray OR line it with parchment paper - dealer's choice.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the ingredients for the crust. Once combined, spread into the baking dish in an even layer. Bake at 350F for 10 minutes, then let cool completely.
  • While the crust is baking, make the filling. Start by whisking the eggs in a large bowl. To that, add the remaining ingredients and whisk well.
  • Once the crust has cooled, pour the filling onto the crust. Bake for 50 minutes at 350F. The filling might crack slightly, but it should be firmly set.
  • Let cool and store in the fridge. Serve with 1 scoop Vanilla Bean Wink, & enjoy!
