Can I make these vegan/without eggs?

Yes, with a few tweaks, you can easily make these lemon bars vegan.

For the crust, use dairy free butter. Let it cool completely, once it has been baked. Until it gets firm, prepare a vegan lemon curd and refrigerate the bars.

Tips

Onto the shortbread crust, you must transfer the lemon filling, as soon as it has been baked. This ensures the eggs don’t separate, and the mixture remains thick.
Do not over bake the bars. As they are cooling down, they continue to cook and will thicken more once they have been refrigerated.
You can try xanthan gum if you can’t tolerate coconut flour, but start with a tiny amount (1/4 teaspoon).
Add some lemon zest to the filling, for a more pronounced lemon flavor.
