Paleo Lemon Bars Recipe


Last year, when Gabriel found out he was allergic to chicken eggs, he had to stop eating a lot of stuff he loved, so when our little flock of ducks finally started laying eggs a few weeks ago, one of the first things I wanted to do was make lemon bars for him.

He’s really missed lemon bars! It’s one of our favorite gluten-free recipes, but the thing is, we’re really trying hard to eat healthily.

We don’t even have sugar in the house at the moment. (where’s the shocked emoji?)

So I went to work creating a paleo lemon bar recipe. I’m afraid to say, I wasted quite a few of his precious eggs before I finally got it right (mostly, I was using too much arrowroot powder at first and made lemon rubber bars. 😛 ).

But we did finally get it right, and they are so tasty!

All the lemon, none of the guilt that our beloved traditional gluten-free lemon bars gave us.

I think we might really starting to get hang of this paleo thing!

Oh, who am I kidding, Paleo purists would die at the amount of honey going into this thing. But hey, it’s a healthy dessert alternative, right?
