I don’t know what it is about lemon and baked goods, but it always makes my heart happy. I think it has something to do with that light, refreshing, slightly-tangy burst of flavor, embedded in a chewy pastry, that tastes like a match made in heaven. If you’re looking for an easy-to-make, big-on-flavor treat that typifies everything that’s good about lemon bars, look no further.

These lemon bars are made with almond flour, which is an ingredient I’ve been baking with quite a lot recently. So if you’re following a gluten-free or keto diet, this recipe is compliant. Let’s get to the deets now, shall we?!

Before I get started with the actual recipe, let’s talk about supplies. You could use a springform pan or any baking dish for this. In this case, you would line the dish with parchment paper, add the mixture, bake and then peel off the parchment paper. Slice into squares and serve. I, however, used a brownie pan just like this one. I love that it creates a delicious crunchy crust on all four sides! Crunchy crust for the win!
