Katelyn | With Sweet Honey



Lemon Filling

  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk, canned
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot flour



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish.
  • Add the crust ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse until mixture is combined. Pour the crust mixture into the baking dish and spread evenly with a spatula.
  • Bake the crust for about 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden around the edges.
  • Meanwhile, add the filling ingredients to a medium bowl. Whisk or mix on low with a hand mixer until combined.
  • Once the crust is baked, take it out of the oven and pour the filling over the crust. Lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the center is set. The center should not move if you jiggle the pan.
  • Let cool completely and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. For best results, let cool in the fridge overnight. Optional: sprinkle powdered sugar over the tops of the bars before serving.
