Lemon Squares

We love these lemon squares from Elana’s Pantry, bu we did modify them quite a bit to suit our much less sweet palate and overall palate. Thank you Elana!

This recipe yields about 48 squares

For the crust you will need:

  • 3 cups almond meal
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 4 tbsps coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut nectar
  • 1 tsp cardamom seeds and one clove pulverized (makes a heaping tsp)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Ingredients of lemon top:

  • 1/4 cup coconut nectar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 6 cage free organic eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

Whip all crust ingredients together and push evenly into a large pyrex lasagna pan and bake on 350 for about 15 minutes, blend all topping ingredients together either in a hand held mixer or blender and pour on top of hot crust and continue to bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, watch to ensure that it doesn’t get burnt. Remove from oven, allow to cool for 30 minutes, place in refrigerator for 2 hours and cut into squares.

    Please do tell more about coconut nectar…I have never used it. 🙂


    1. Hello Brenna! We love the nectar from this site http://www.coconutsecrets.com/nectar2.html awesome stuff, low glycemic and just perfect. We order it from them, but I think that you can find it at WholeFoods. I’ll double check next time I go. My best to Kenny! Jo
