Healthier Lemon Bar

These tangy-sweet lemon bars use tofu and tapioca instead of eggs and butter to create a plant-based dessert that hits all your sweet (and sour) spots.

Ingredients

  • 2 cup Oats, rolled, gluten-free
  • 1/3 cup Flax Seeds
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 4 Dates, pitted
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp Almond Milk, unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1 1/2 cup Tofu – silken, drained
  • 1/3 cup Lemon Juice
  • 1 Lemon – zested
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 2 tbsp Tapioca Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric, ground
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil

Directions

1

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line an 8x8 baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

Add oats, flax seeds, and salt to the Work Bowl and process on HIGH with the Chopping Blade until it reaches a flour-like consistency.

3

Add the dates, vanilla, and coconut oil. Process on HIGH with the Chopping Blade until smooth.

Add the almond milk and process it again. Once it reaches a crumbly consistency, it’s ready to transfer to an 8x8 lined baking pan.

5

Press down evenly.

6

Make the lemon filling. Add the remaining ingredients to the Work Bowl and process on HIGH for 1 minute until you have a creamy, custard-like consistency.

7

Pour the filling on top of the crust.
