Frisky Lemon-Raspberry Bars

It’s been a while since I’ve made a sweet treat for you guys.

NOTE: always close your eyes when blowing the dusty dog hair out of your neglected mixing bowls. Always.

So. In honor of not making sweet treats for a while, I’m going to share with you one of my absolute favorites.

The perfect combination of lemons and raspberries!
  • Crust:
  • 1 3/4 cups of almond flour
  • 1/4 cup of arrowroot flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Filling:
  • Juice and zest from three lemons
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp arrowroot flour
  • 1/2 pint organic raspberries
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine all of the crust ingredients and stir until doughy.
  3. Press the dough into the pan and bake for 10 minutes.
  4. While the crust is baking, zest and juice your lemons. I would zest them before you juice them. You can strain the juice in a mesh strainer, or squeeze the lemon juice between your fingers to catch the seeds.
  5. Whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, honey and eggs. Add the arrowroot flour one tablespoon at a time while whisking continuously.
  6. Mix in your raspberries and allow the mixture to set for 15 minutes.
  7. Pour the liquid over the crust and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the the edges are set and the center is a little jiggly.
  8. Cool completely on a wire rack and then chill completely in the fridge before serving.

Lemons make me think of summer time. Citrus in general makes me happy. Lemon-y desserts especially.

    I am nut free, can I sub cassava or tigernut flour for the almond flour?

      Hi Erika, I don’t have a lot of experience with cassava or tigernut flour, but I think they could work– as long as they aren’t too fine. You might need to adjust the liquids a bit if the crust seems too dry (I usually just add a little water until I get the consistency I like).
