Paleo Lemon Bars 

Lemon bars have always been one of my favorite desserts. Obviously chocolate of any kind gets first billing, but sometimes you just need to change it up and you want something light and refreshing, and Lemon Bars are perfect for just that!

Do you agree??

I have been working really hard to cut refined sugars from my diet. I also am working to fuel my body better. Because when you fuel your body better, you feel better. It is really just that simple.

So when I was craving Lemon Bars the other day, I decided I was going to take on the challenge and make a healthier version of the Lemon Bars Classic.

After a couple tweaks and replacements, these luscious and heavenly Paleo Lemon bars were created! All the goodness without the refined sugar and naughty carbs.

Making these delightful Paleo Lemon Bars low carb and are Keto Friendly – Cue your best happy dance!

So in the words of Maui… You’re Welcome 😉

  1. Is that powdered sugar on top? And I usually use raw sugar, is that an acceptable substitute for Stevia? I want to make these for Easter, they look amazing! Thank you!

    1. I think a little raw sugar would be delightful!

  2. What else can I use instead of the 1/4 cup of stevia?? Can I use Xylitol or honey?

    1. Ashley, Yep you can use whatever you prefer – but I have only tested the recipe using Stevia so cooking times and texture may vary based using other ingredients. 🙂

  3. these lemon bars look amazing but is their any substitute for the stevia

    1. Any natural zero calorie sweetener should work just fine!

    Hi Andie! I’m so excited to make these amazing looking Lemon Bars 🙂 Was wondering, how do you keep the 1/4 C of coconut oil from hardening up while mixing with the other filling ingredients?

    1. Once you melt it, it will take quite a while for it to harden back up!

      1. 4 stars
        At my house, the coconut oil stays melted unless the kitchen is cold. I have also noticed it will harden up if the bowl/bottle/container is placed on the granite countertop. Hot or cold will transfer to the granite.

        To make measuring coconut oil easier, I use a tall, slender bottle (recycled olive oil bottle). This way I can pour the oil rather than scoop it.

  9. Is the sugarless sugar granulated or liquid? I have both forms.

  10. Is the coconut oil in the filling melted as well? Mine are baking now and it looks like the coconut oil has come up to the top and it sitting there. Is this right?

    Well these ended up coming out perfect! I did bake an extra 5 minutes as I thought the coconut oil was coming to the top, I put I don’t think it really was. And these seem to continue to cook some as they cool so next mid I will bake as per the instructions. And there will be a next time! These are a great Keto dessert! Thank you for sharing
