Lemon bars are a favorite dessert of mine, and I love pairing lemon with other fruit flavors. Blueberry, strawberry, and raspberries go so well with that tart flavor. I also wanted to create something my parents would enjoy, and they follow a Keto eating lifestyle, so I decided to try out these keto lemon bars with a keto raspberry sauce.
This keto lemon bar recipe starts with an almond flour shortbread crust. I then bake a keto lemon bar filling on top, then spooned the keto raspberry sauce on top. It was heavenly!
There are three parts to this recipe, so let's go through each part so you can make this amazing keto lemon bars recipe!
Let's start by prepping the almond flour crust for our keto lemon bars. Put the almond flour, cold butter, sugar substitute (I use Bocha Sweet), and salt in a food processor. Pulse the food processor until you get a fine crumb texture.
Line a 9"x9" square pan with parchment paper, then press the crust mixture into the pan.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20-25 minutes. You are looking for the edge of the crust to start browning. Let it cool completely and set aside.
For the lemon component of these keto lemon bars, start by combining the eggs, egg yolks, and sugar substitute (once again, I used Bocha Sweet). Whisk them together until they are a pale yellow, and get frothy and almost fluffy.
Whisk the lemon juice into the egg mixture to combine. Add the salt, and sprinkle the coconut flour in and whisk until it is combined well.
Pour the lemon mixture over the cooled off almond crust. Bake it all at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for about 25-30 minutes. The mixture will not jiggle in the pan when it's completely baked. Let the keto lemon bars cool completely.
Side note- if you aren't a raspberry fan, sprinkle some powder sugar substitute on top to keep them as keto lemon bars. You can also make these a day ahead, just keep it in the refrigerator.
Combine the raspberries, sugar substitute (surprise, Bocha Sweet!), and water in a pot. Let it come to a boil.
Pour the mixture into a blender, and sprinkle the xanthan gum on top. Blend it until it is smooth.
Let it cool down, then you can spread it on top of the lemon bars, OR cut your lemon bars and spoon the sauce onto each square.
Enjoy your keto treat!!
