No Bake Lemon Bars


Description

These No Bake Lemon Bars are incredibly smooth and creamy with a bright and tart lemon flavor. These gluten-free, paleo and vegan lemon bars come together quickly and easily in the blender.


Ingredients

Scale

For the crust

For the cheesecake

  • 2 cups raw cashews, soaked for at least four hours or preferably overnight, drain and rinse before using 
  • ¼ cup full-fat coconut milk, shaken 
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup fresh lemon juice, use ¼ cup if you want it a little less lemony – you can always add more!
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Line an 8” square pan with parchment paper for easy removal, and grease well with coconut oil. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, melted coconut butter, melted coconut oil, and maple syrup. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. In a high-powered blender (I used my Vitamix, but most powerful blenders should do the job), combine all of the filling ingredients and blend for about 2-3 minutes, or until the mixture is silky smooth and creamy.
  4. Once it’s smooth, taste the mixture and adjust the sweetness/tartness levels, if desired. Pour the filling into the prepared pan over the crust and smooth the top. Hit the pan hard against the counter a few times to get out any air bubbles.
  5. Place in the freezer to set for at least 3 hours or until completely firm before slicing and serving.
  6. When serving, I recommend running your knife under hot water to warm it up before cutting the lemon bars with the still-hot (dried) knife. Serve frozen or let them thaw at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to three months.
