These bars are refined sugar free and I used spelt flour.

We like it so much that I’ve made these a few times already this summer, including one time using limes.

Lemon Bars

Shortbread crust:

  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp water

– Mix all the ingredients together and press into a 31-22 cm, (9×13 inch) baking pan. Pre-Bake crust in preheated, 350 F, oven for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Lemon Filling:

  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 cup creamed honey
  • 3 tbsp spelt flour
  • Juice of 3 lemons
  • Zest of 1 lemon

– Whisk all the ingredients together. Pour lemon filling on the still warm prebaked crust. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the filling is set. Let cool completely, then refrigerate.

-Cut into squares, then dust with icing sugar if desired! Tastes wonderful when cold.

I hope you give it a try! This was actually first time I’ve ate and made lemon bars, and I’m loving it!
