Last week, our organic delivery box included a very interesting recipe; lemon squares with no sugar or flour or eggs? Say what?
Lemon Coconut Bars
1 C + 2 Tbsp. almond meal/ground almonds (I used Trader Joe's)
11/2 C pitted dates
Dash of pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp sea salt
Zest of 1 lemon
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (zest it first, juice it second)
I C + 2Tbsp dried unsweetened coconut
Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of an 8" square baking pan. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp almond meal to 'dust'.
Place all ingredients in a food processor, reserving the 2 Tbsp of coconut. Process until well combined and clumped together. With veg-oiled (or buttered) fingers, press into pan evenly. Dust with reserved coconut. Chill 3 hours. Cut into 25 squares and try not to eat 5 at a time.
