Lemon as you know, is one of my very favorite summer flavors. Lemon is everywhere around here. But lemon bars are a huge favorite in my house. I’m talking, they don’t last more than a couple of hours between my husband and I. We’re talking the definition of inhalation here people. And what’s not to like? Sweet and tart smooth lemon atop a shortbread crust dusted with powdered sugar. Come on, it’s a big win. These Gluten-Free Coconut Lemon Bars are a spin on the classic treat but are just as swoon-worthy.

The addition of coconut to the crust adds a little tropical twist while using a gluten-free flour mix makes this classic treat perfect for everyone’s dietary needs. You can read more about this Gluten Free Lemon Bars Recipe over on Food Fanatic today!

Enjoy!

Probably one of my favorite treats ever; though if you asked I would probably say chocolate, there is something about lemon bars that I find irresistible. Like in eating half a pan if I’m not carefully monitored. Wondering why Gluten Free though…I didn’t know you had an issue with gluten; hope it’s nothing serious.

You and me both! I could definitely (and may have) eat half a pan all by myself. And no worries 😉 All is well. Gluten free because A) perhaps some of my readers may be gluten free and looking for a recipe and B) this recipe is something I did for Food Fanatic at their request, in addition to my regular monthly bread contributions.
