When LIFE gives you LEMONS…make these! ❤
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!
- 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
- 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)
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!
I was so surprised by how delicious these came out! They’re my new main squeeze and bf approved 😉 haha very refreshing and just what I needed to devote myself to another crazy week of work.
When life gives you lemons…please make these 🙂
