Making The Gluten-Free Crust
To cut the grains, we opt for a pillowy crust made with blanched almond flour and vanilla. This creates a chewy texture that’s similar to shortbread, but with a nutty flavor. It’s a combo that works great for both sweet and savory recipes (like quiche), plus it holds up well without easily crumbling.
Perfecting The Zesty Lemon Layer
The lemon layer of these bars contains all the lip-puckering flavors you’d expect. We use fresh lemon juice and lemon zest to amp up that citrus taste, while an egg helps creates a curd-like texture that bakes up velvety soft in the oven.
For sweetness, we ditch refined sugars and use monk fruit sweetener instead. Since it’s much sweeter than traditional sugar, you’ll only need one teaspoon to get the job done. Be careful not to use any more than that, or it could result in an overly bitter flavor.
If you’re not following a keto diet, add half a cup of raw honey into the lemon filling and omit the monk fruit sweetener. This will mellow out the tang and give it more of a sticky-sweet taste.
Helpful Tips To Get Started:
- Poke holes in the crust before baking. This will prevent air bubbles from creating an uneven surface.
- Give them time before you slice. Wait until the keto lemon bars have fully chilled before slicing them up. Cutting into them too soon could result in a runny mess!
- Keep leftovers handy. You can store the bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
