Healthy Lemon Bars (Gluten-Free)

Healthy lemon bars that are gluten free and paleo make for the most perfect easy summer dessert. Made with an almond flour and coconut flour crust, and a simple filling sweetened with only maple syrup. Your whole family will love this healthy dessert recipe.

Prep: 10Cook: 30Total: 40 minutes
Yield 12 bars 1x




  • 3 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 4 large lemons)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour, sifted


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper or nonstick spray.
  2. In a bowl, mix together all of your crust ingredients until well combined.
  3. Press into the bottom of the 8×8 baking dish and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. While crust is baking, whisk together all filling ingredients, adding sifted coconut flour last. Whisk until all clumps are gone.
  5. Once crust comes out of the oven, pour filling immediately on top.
  6. Lower oven temp to 325F and bake for 20-22 minutes or until filling is set. A little jiggle is ok!
  7. Let cool at room temperature for 30 minutes then transfer to fridge for at least 3 hours.
  8. Add powdered sugar (not paleo, but delicious) and cut and serve!
