This weekend I needed something sweet to remedy my “sour” stress and exhaustion levels from a tough week of interning. I’ve been doing my best to keep a positive mindset but sometimes you need a lil somethin’ somethin’ to refresh your spirits. Luckily, I had a few lemons in my fridge that aided in my rescue! 🙂 The first thing I thought of was LEMON-AID bars…and of course I was determined to bring this punny baked good to life. I found a vegan recipe on Pinterest and altered it slightly to make it gluten-free! woot woot! Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1/2 cup +2 T of gf flour (I use Premium Gold Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour)
  • 1/2 cup of almond flour
  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp of ground ginger

Filling:

  • 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice (I used 2 lemons)
  • 2 tsp of lemon zest
  • 1 ripe mashed banana
  • 3/4 cup of organic white sugar
  • 2 T of cornstarch
  • 2 T gf flour

+++Some powdered sugar (sprinkle on top)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

For the crust, mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased 9×9 pan. (8×8 will work too).

Bake for 10 minutes.

For the filling, mix all of the filling ingredients together until smooth. I recommend using a whisk. Once the crust is finished baking, pour filling over the top and bake for another 30 minutes.

Let them cool off and then give them a generous sprinkle of powdered sugar! woot woot!
