Keto lemon bars recipe & photos by Jordan Pie
A delicious low carb and grain free keto lemon bar with a perfectly sweet-tart lemon layer on top. A quick and easy recipe that only uses a handful of ingredients. The crust is made from almond meal, and the filling uses just 4 ingredients: almond meal, sweetener, lemon and eggs! It couldn’t get any simpler than that. Dust with powdered xylitol or erythritol, fresh lemon zest, or dollop coconut whipped cream over the top for a a touch of decadence.
