- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit, and line an 8"X8" pan with parchment paper. I used a glass pan.
- Next make the crust. Start by placing the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and 1 pinch of salt in a small mixing bowl. Use a whisk to stir the ingredients until they are combined.
- In another small mixing bowl, add 1 egg, 1/4 cup honey, butter and vanilla and whisk them together. It will take a couple minutes to get the honey worked into the other ingredients.
- Next, add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and continue stirring until a clumpy dough forms.
- Plop the dough into your parchment lined square baking dish, and use your hands to spread the dough, making a uniform layer.
- Place your dish in the oven and bake for 15 minutes until the crust starts to get golden brown around the edges and on the top.
- While the crust is baking, prepare the filling. Place 3 eggs, 1/2 cup honey, the juice and zest of 1 lemon and 1 pinch of salt in one of the bowls you used and already emptied to make the filling. I used the dry ingredient bowl when I made them last time because it meant less dishes.
- Whisk together all of the filling ingredients. Again, it will take a little effort to get the honey all the way worked into the rest of the ingredients. Stick with it, you're almost finished.
- When the crust is done, remove from the oven and pour your filling right on top.
- Return your dish to the oven and bake for another 20 minutes until the filling is set.
- Remove from the oven and let your paleo lemon bars cool. Once cooled, slice into bars and serve.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 5-7 days.
