Low Carb Bars
For a long time I have limited my sugar and refined carbs because my body doesn’t burn those off like it used to (sucks big time!).
I don’t eat treats very often, but I still need to satisfy my sweet tooth (teeth!), so why not challenge myself by turning my favorite sweets into a healthier snack?!
Plus, I also want to have a collection of gluten-free treat options at my finger tips since there are so many people that avoid wheat in foods.
What Type of Sweetener is Best for Low Carb Lemon Bars?
I have used Truvia, Swerve, Erythritol and monk fruit in this recipe. Pick what is best for your sweet tooth.
All of the options I mentioned have a low or zero glycemic impact on glucose levels.
Ironically, when I share altered recipes no one notices that I didn’t use granulated sugar or wheat in the recipe!
If you are new to lowering your sugar intake, then I suggest first trying the Truvia cane sugar blend, which contains some sugar with stevia and erythritol.
What Can I Use In Place of Coconut Oil?
I used coconut oil in the crust, but if you don’t care for coconut oil, then use butter if you would like.
The Crust For These Lemon Bars is Runny. What Happened?
The crust should firm up after about five minutes of mixing the ingredients for the crust. The coconut flour will absorb some of the moisture.
To trouble shoot, some readers have told me they put the crust in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes and it firms up.
You can also add a sprinkle of more coconut flour, but don’t go overboard otherwise you will have a hard crust.
How Should I Store Gluten Free Lemon Bars?
Keep these lemon bars in the refrigerator covered with saran wrap. Enjoy within 3 days.
