Organic Raw Coconut Lemon Squares

Ok, so nothing says summer like the fresh yumminess of lemons! I love the traditional tangy lemon filling over the sweet crust but if you’re trying to stay on the healthy track the lemon squares we are accustomed to may not fit the bill.

These coconut lemon squares are organic and raw and they are free of gluten, eggs and refined sugar. They will taste different than what you may be used to but they are equally delicious with an added yum of coconut! The best thing is you don’t have to feel guilty about eating one or three! Enjoy!
