The classic lemon bars get a Paleo-friendly makeover! They’re sweet, bright and so easy with only 5 ingredients! You’d never know these are healthy!
It’s Friday. And I am bringing you a VERY SPECIAL TREAT.
“WHOA IT’S ORIGINAL. HOW ON EARTH DID YOU EVER THINK TO MAKE A LEMON BAR?!”
Said no one ever. I KNOW.
It’s not special in the super-creative and unique sense. But special to my HEART because it took me 9 tries to get perfect.
9 tries. In one day.
Some call it crazy. I call it dedicated.
With a sprinkle of crazy. And a dash of I’m-still-getting-lemon-zest-out-my-hair-good-thing-that-blonde-sort-of-suits-me.

But, seriously. The lemon part of these bars? A SNAP. Those were perfected by try numero dos.
But the crust? MY NEMESIS. I kept making these perfect crusts. But then they were notsoperfect by the time I poured the topping on them.
Here’s a failure picture from Instagram:
Yeah. Nobody wants to eat that. It was basically a pile of lemon flavored yum…on top of a pile of mushy, crust that once was. But now is NAHTTT.
Mr. FFF told me to give up. BUT, this was the FIRST recipe I have re-done from the Reader Re-Dos that I want to do! Do you remember me announcing that WAYYYYY back a million years ago, and then I just never got around to it?
That’s right. I want YOU to send me your favorite recipes that are NOTSO waistline friendly, and I’ll pick some to try to make into healthy good-for-you nummage!
Which is why I couldn’t give up. A reader submitted her favorite Lemon Bar Recipe from “A Family Circle” and I COULD NOT LET HER DOWN.
Plus, lemon bars happen to be one of my most favorite desserts of ALL the evers, so testing wasn’t THATTTT BAD.
It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. 🙂
AND it made our apartment smell like I was the best housewife ever who just sits around and cleans ALL DAY. Either that or people thought that Mr. Clean moved in.
However, I have more hair than him and more female qualities. So, I hope people do not mistake me for the latter.
After eleventy billion batches, these happened. I let the whole thing cool over-night and woke up with major anxiety (can you write off counselling sessions as business expenses?! Please say yes.) about cutting into them.
I rolled out bed and uncovered them. I cut into them VERY apprehensively. AND AND AND, I actually felt my knife CUT through the crust.
Like in a CRUNCHY-HOW-A-CRUST-SHOULD-BE sort of way. <— !!!!
I took it out the pan and, BEHOLD, a NO MUSH CRUST.
And the taste? Fresh, bright, perfectly sweet and loaded with lemon flavah!
Only 5 INGREDIENTS? CHECK. Paleo? CHECK, the sequel AND good for you WHILE still taking you to Num town? OH BABY.
Lemon Bars. Consider yourselves conquered.
