Keto Lemon Bars Recipe:
For the crust:
- 1 ½ cups almond flour
- ¼ cup powdered erythritol or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
For the filling:
- 4 large eggs
- ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 3-4 lemons)
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- ¾ cup powdered erythritol or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener
- 3 tablespoons almond flour
- Optional: Additional powdered erythritol for dusting
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line an 8×8-inch (20×20 cm) baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang for easy removal.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, powdered erythritol, and salt for the crust. Add the melted butter and stir until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Transfer the crust mixture to the prepared baking pan and press it firmly into an even layer on the bottom. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are lightly golden.
- Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon juice, lemon zest, powdered erythritol, and almond flour until well combined.
- Once the crust is baked, pour the lemon filling over the warm crust and return the pan to the oven. Bake for an additional 18-20 minutes until the filling is set.
- Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool completely at room temperature. Then transfer it to the refrigerator and chill for at least 2 hours to firm up.
- Once chilled, lift the bars out of the pan using the parchment paper overhang and transfer them to a cutting board. Cut into squares or bars of your desired size.
- Optional: Dust the tops of the bars with a little powdered erythritol for an extra touch of sweetness.
- Serve the keto lemon bars chilled and enjoy!
