Keto Lemon Bars

These soft and creamy keto lemon bars will melt in your mouth.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Total Time 33 minutes
Yield 12 - 16 squares

Ingredients

  • 12 oz cream cheese or vegan cream cheese
  • 1 cup yogurt, such as coconutmilk yogurt
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup erythritol (or sugar for non-keto)
  • 3 1/2 tbsp almond flour (or 2 1/2 tsp cornstarch)
  • optional 1/8 tsp turmeric for color

Optional Crust

Instructions

  • *The lemon zest is important, so be sure to include it. I like to use a water bath (see above for explanation) but it's not required.
    Preheat the oven to 350 F. Combine the crust ingredients, if using. Press into a parchment-lined 8x8 pan. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. (Don't over-beat, which could cause cracking.) Pour over the crust, and bake 25 minutes. Do not open the oven door (not even to check), but turn off heat and let sit 8 minutes. Take out the still-undercooked bars and let cool completely, then refrigerate a few hours until firm. Leftover bars can be refrigerated or frozen.
