Heavenly Coconut Lemon Bars

This is a recipe for those days when you must have something slightly sweet. This one does have some sugar, but it's whole sugar-raw honey and coconut sugar. Mind you, these are still sugars, but as far as sugar goes, they're on the healthier side. This recipe also contains coconut flour, which is tremendously healthy, with 10 grams of fiber per serving. Check out the infographics below for more benefits:

Here’s a video from Paleo Hacks, which shows the procedure:

My results: Before I send you to the main recipe I wanted to give you my thoughts. The coconut over powers the lemon rendering these a bit bland. I recommend cutting coconut flour to 1 cup and adding 1/2 cup almond flour. Perhaps increase lemon juice to 1/2 cup. You may need to increase tapioca a bit as well to compensate for the extra liquid.

About Tamara Hoerner (1259 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes β€œGood, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  4. Another Classic! Recipes like this will encourage food stores to carry coconut flour. πŸ’– We are starting to see more gluten free flour on the shelves. It’s a beginning!
