Raw Lemon Pie Bar

Raw lemon bars GoodGirlGoneGreen

A few months ago, I posted a raw lemon pie recipe trying to replicate the Hail Merry lemon tarts. They turned out good, but not as lemony as I wanted, and couldn't figure out why, since I used 5 lemons in the recipe!

I recently decided to play around with the original recipe, and came up with this raw lemon bar recipe. It took me several attempts when it came to the crust, but I think I got it the third time around.

Enjoy the lemony goodness. I know I did!

What do you think?


Lemon Crust

  • 1 cups of raisins
  • 1 cup of shredded coconut
  • 1 cups of almonds
  • 2 tsp of coconut butter or oil
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • Vanilla flavor or extract to taste

Lemon Cashew Filling

  • 2 cups of cashews soaked for 4 hours and rinsed-optional
  • 1 cup of shredded coconut
  • 8-10 dates soaked for 4 hours-optional
  • Juice of 3 lemons
  • Zest from 3 lemons
  • 2 tsp of lemon flavor
  • 1 Tbsp of coconut butter or oil soft


Lemon Crust

  • To make the crust, process the almonds with coconut flakes in the food processor until it becomes almond meal.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients in the food processor.
  • Process until you have a sticky mess.
  • Place the mixture in glass container and press down until even.
  • Place in the freezer until it is hard.

Lemon Cashew Filling

  • Place the cashews in the food processor and blend until they have butter consistency.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and process until smooth.
  • If it is not โ€œlemonyโ€ enough add more lemon zest and/or juice.
  • Once the crust is ready, pour the lemon cashew mixture on top, and evenly spread.
  • Sprinkle coconut flakes on top of the bars (optional)
  • Place in the fridge or freezer for 30 minutes or until firm.

    The hubs will love these. I often don’t make lemon bars and such because I don’t like lemon flavored things (love lemon though — weird, right?), but I know these would be a hit with him! Looks easy too. Love easy.

    Sounds like a delicious snack! I’m generally a big fan of things with shredded coconut, and the lemon would definitely add a kick. I’ll have to give this a try!

    Just delish! I used macadamias instead of cashews. This tastes better than any traditional lemon slice treat. Great recipe, thank you so much for sharing!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
