Just because it’s beach season, that doesn’t mean you’ve gotta skip dessert. We’ve got the perfect summer recipe for lemon bars, made with our delicious, low-carb, keto-friendly pecan sandy cookies. Created in collaboration with actor/influencer Madelyn Hopfensperger, this Nunbelievable Recipe is quick and simple. (Waiting for the bars to finish cooling might be the hardest part!)
The crust is made with our pecan sandy cookies, which are perfect for anyone on a keto diet, or just looking to cut down on sugar. They contain just 1 gram of net carbs, have zero added sugar, are grain free, gluten free, and use only non-GMO ingredients. But, as Madelyn says, “even if you don’t follow any of those diets they are not taste-free! They are delicious. Whether you’re trying to watch your sugar or not, I would give this recipe a shot.”
The sweet, tangy custard filling (made with fresh lemons and the natural sugar substitute stevia) is the perfect compliment to that delicious, buttery crust. “It really all kinda melts in your mouth,” Madelyn promises. These lemon bars will definitely satisfy your craving for something sweet without worrying about blowing your diet.
