These tropical paleo lemon bars use lime juice and macadamia nuts to give the classic dessert a Caribbean twist. They're a healthier, gluten and grain free dessert that's only 7 ingredients!
* PLEASE weigh your flour after sifting in order to make sure these turn out. Gluten free baking is tricky, and accurate measurements are key.
**Do NOT use lemon juice from a bottle, it tastes completely different than fresh. I tried it. Not good.
*** Make sure you DON'T OVER-BAKE it. I did once, and it completely makes the lemon layer bake funny, and makes it almost disappear. You want to to be golden brown on the edges and VERY light brown on the inside.
I have had a few readers struggle with this recipe, but I have made in MANY MANY times with great results. Please make sure to follow the directions as written.
Store bars in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
****The first bar is a little difficult to get out, so be gentle! But, once one is out, it's smooth sailing!
