Making paleo lemon bars
These bars are super easy to make. I use maple sugar in these because it’s light in color, but coconut sugar will work great if that’s what you have. The bars may just be a little darker in color, but the taste will still be great. Lemon zest and juice is added for maximum lemon flavor and then fresh strawberries are folded in. The strawberries should be diced so they distribute evenly.
This strawberry glaze or frosting is so delicious! The base is coconut butter which I use for a lot of my desserts. It is hard at room temperature so pop it in the microwave for about a minute and stir it good before measuring. Combine that with a strawberry for flavor and color, a little maple syrup and lemon juice of course. The result is a tangy and sweet glaze the pairs perfectly with the bars.
Storing the cookie bars
These are best kept in the fridge. Like most paleo baked goods, they will go bad quickly if not stored chilled. These especially get soft after about an hour at room temperature. They last up to 10 days in the fridge though and are delicious cold.

Paleo Vegan Strawberry Lemon Bars
- Preheat the oven to 325° and line a 9x9 pan with parchment paper.
- Make the bars. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, maple sugar, and salt. Stir well. Add in the coconut oil, lemon zest and juice, and maple syrup. Mix well until dough is formed. Gently fold in the strawberries until just mixed. Scoop into the prepared pan, spread evenly and bake for 30 minutes. Let cool before glazing.
- Make the glaze. First make sure the coconut butter is smooth and creamy. If it's hard, heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds and then stir well. Combine coconut butter, strawberry, maple syrup, lemon juice, and water in a small blender and blend until smooth. Pour over cooled bars and place in the fridge to set.
- These are best stored covered in the fridge up to 10 days.
