Lemon Bars- Paleo, Gluten Free

IMG_1067 (640x427)

I put my little boy to his nap and wondered… what should I make today?

I realised that baking is a kinda of rest for me. I’m find it hard to rest while he rest. But look forward to just time by myself in the kitchen, placing random ingredients in a food processor and see what comes out. It’s also pretty cool, to have Asher wake from his nap and point to the kitchen bench. Often saying “there there” meaning that he wants a bite.

This was one of those times. The result was more of a slice than cake. Mini bites with a burst of lemon citrus flavour to it. A easy, quick recipe to have at the back of my head.

    hi Daphne,

    can this be made entirely from almond meal, without the arrowroot flour and coconut flour?
