RECIPE: Lemon Bars

One of Conrad's most favorite treats is lemon bars. My mother has always made exceptional bars, but in her elder years she just isn't able to make them as often ... Be sides that fact that we live 2400 miles apart! So, I was looking around on the Internet (Primal Women In The Kitchen) and came across some Paleo Lemon Bars. Well, you guessed it ... I HAD to give them a try! They taste fantastic! Tart and fresh, sweet and nutty! 

6 whole Eggs
1/2 cup Honey
1 cup Lemon juice (about 8 lemons)
1/2 cup Coconut oil
1 cup raw Almonds
1 cup raw Pecans
1/4 cup Honey
1/2 cup melted Coconut oil
2 Eggs

1. Whisk eggs, honey, and lemon juice together in a medium sized sauce pan.
2. Heat on medium/high and add coconut oil. Stir until the coconut oil has melted.
3. Continue stirring until the mixture thickens and bubbles.
4. Remove from heat and place in a bowl in the refrigerator to cool and thicken further.
1. Place almonds and pecans in a food processor or blender until finely chopped, do not puree. They should be in tiny pieces but not as fine as almond flour.
2. Mix the nuts with the remaining ingredients until they are well combined.
3. Spread over the bottom of a well greased 8 x 12 pan. I used olive oil spray.
4. Heat oven to 400* and bake for 15-18 minutes. The crust will be done when you can insert a toothpick in the middle and it comes out clean.
5. Cool crust completely before layering the filling over the top. Return to the refrigerator until ready to serve.
