INGREDIENTS

For the Crust:

  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups superfine blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup granulated erythritol sweetener
  • pinch of kosher salt

For the Filling:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup granulated erythritol sweetener
  • 1/2 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed if possible
  • 1/4 cup grated lime zest
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 2 tablespoons  unflavored gelatin

INSTRUCTIONS

To make the crust:
  • Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  • Couple all of the crust ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and mix well with a fork until a crumbly dough forms.
  • Press firmly into an 8 by 8 baking pan, going about 1/2 inch up the sides. Line the pan with parchment paper or foil first for best results, then you can simply lift out the completed lemon bars.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove and cool while you make the filling.
To make the filling:
  • Melt the butter in a small pan.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in lime juice, and lime zest and sweetener until dissolved.
  • Whisk in the egg yolks and place back them to the stove over low heat.
  • Prepare over low heat, whisking continually until the curd starts to thicken.
  • Remove from the heat and strain into a small bowl.
  • Whisk in the gelatin and xanthan gum until dissolved and smooth.
  • Pour the filling over the par-baked crust and spread out evenly to the edges of the pan.
  • Bake the bars at 350 F for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and cool for 30 minutes.
  • Cut into sixteen 2 x 2 squares and garnish with optional toasted coconut and grated lime zest before serving.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
