Coconut Lime Bars

Coconut-Lime-Bars They might appear to be lemon bars, but I assure you, they are not. I just don’t like using food coloring, so these Coconut Lime Bars are yellow! I knew you’d be cool with that. I’ve been using Organic Coconut Oil to replace vegetable oil and shortening for a while now, and I love the extra flavor and health benefits it has. Now don’t go crazy and think that these are healthy now that they have coconut oil. They are just a little bit more tasty and less processed. They are still full of sugar though, and are perfect for a tasty treat. Coconut Lime Bars Crust 3/4 cup of butter 3/4 cup of Coconut OIl 2 1/4 cups of flour 1/2 cup of powdered sugar Filling 4 eggs 2 cups of sugar 6 T of Lime juice 1 t. Lime zest 4 T. flour 1 t. baking powder Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put butter and coconut oil in mixer bowl and beat until softened and combined. Add flour and powdered sugar and mix on low-speed until just combined. Spread dough evenly in a 9×13 pan. Bake for 10 minutes or until the corners are light golden brown. Remove from oven and pour filling on top of crust. In a small mixing bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, lime juice, lime zest, flour, and baking powder with a wire whisk or on low-speed of a mixer for just a few minutes. It is important not to mix a lot of air into the filling. Pour on top of partially baked crust and bake for 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and dust with powdered sugar. Cut into small bars. Makes 18-24 squares. Chewy and gooey and oh so yum! Jessica Smile

  3. These bars look so yummy! I have lots of coconut oil, but have never thought of using it in a dessert crust like this. I'll be making these soon. Sharing today on Facebook!
    Thanks for linking up at Wake Up Wednesday!

  5. Jessica, have you heard of/been experimenting with green stevia (yet)? This might be one of those recipes where it could work! (or at least partial sugar replacement with the green stevia). See my facebook last week. I posted a link to a great stevia article that compares them all. btw. FABULOUS PHOTO as always and yes, i wish you would live closer and I would pop by tomorrow and come taste one. These bars look fabulous! Thanks for coming to party w us
