No Bake Lemon Keto Bars
No Bake Lemon Keto Bars, a delicious tasting low carb, sugar free, gluten free, and vegan dessert or snack idea.
Line a square baking dish with parchment paper that overhangs the the dish
In a mixing bowl, mix together the maple syrup, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Next, in another mixing bowl, blend together the almond flour, the lemon zest and the coconut. Add the wet ingredients from the first bowl to the second bowl. Blend this until a thick 'paste' forms. Then transfer the paste to the prepared baking dish.
Press the paste into the baking dish until evenly dispersed and somewhat firm. You can use your hands to do this. The refrigerate until firm (about two hours).
Cut the bars into squares and top with optional ingredients such as cut up lemons or sugar free powdered sugar for serving.
I mentioned that these lemon bars are flavored with lemon juice.
For best results, I suggest using actual lemon juice from lemons and not a prepared lemon juice which may also have other ingredients (sugar!) added to it.
Also mentioned, this recipe call for almond flour.
Almond flour adds to the flavor of these bars and is friendly to the keto, low carbohydrate, gluten free, and vegan diets. An alternative to almond flour could be another nut flour that measures the same (ie not coconut flour) or oat flour.
