Oh hey yes hello it’s me, and I made you another lemon treat because clearly the hundred others on this little website of mine where not enough! What can I say, lemon treats make my heart go boom boom.

I’m still recovering from the soft lemon cookies (these cookies!) and of course I needed some more lemon curd in my life. Which seems particularly suiting since I’m currently in the UK, in Scotland (story here!).

But who am I kidding, I don’t need to be there to crave lemon curd. It’s a 365 days per year, anywhere in the world situation. Anyhow!

Now that I’ve tried making my own lemon curd, there’s no way I’m going back to the store-bought kind. It’s way too sweet for my taste and making your own is easy! You can control the amount of sugar you put in and, most importantly, lick the pan thoroughly. I suspect at least one fourth gets “lost” in the production. That’s the perks of making homemade lemon curd 😁

The other thing I love about this new recipe is the crust. Not only is it healthier than most crust you’ve likely came across (it’s free from refined sugars, grain free and made with wholesome ingredients) but it’s got this sweet nutty flavor and this great texture that compliments the curd really well 😻

The blueberries add a nice fruity twist. I love how they pop in your mouth when you bite them and they reveal their sweet juice. Lemon + blueberry is a classic combo and you can easily understand why with these yummy bars!

Enjoy girlfriend!

Cal: 300 - Protein: 5.9g - Fat: 22.7g - Carbs: 19.3g - Fiber: 1.7g - Sugar: 11g

Ingredients

    Crust
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons tapioca or arrowroot starch
  • 2 tablespoon coconut sugar (or brown sugar - but coconut sugar is healthier)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Lemon Curd:
  • Zest of 6 lemons
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup organic sugar (you can also use honey to make it paleo)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into cubes

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F / 175C degrees.
  2. Make the crust. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together almond meal, starch, coconut sugar and sea salt. Stir in coconut oil and maple syrup. Stir to combine well. Chill dough for 15 minutes.
  3. In a greased pie dish or baking dish (I used a 13x9 baking dish), use your hands to press dough mixture in one even layer. Bake for 20 minutes until center is dry to the touch and edges are browned. Set aside.
  4. Before juicing the lemons, zest 3 of them and add to a mixing bowl and set a sieve overtop. Set aside.
  5. Make the lemon curd. In a large saucepan, whisk together lemon juice, sugar, and eggs. Simmer over low heat, adding cubed butter, and stir often as butter melts. Continue cooking over low heat, stirring often, for about 5-6 minutes or until mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Remove immediately from heat, then pour over sieve, using a silicon spatula to press mixture through. Then stir together curd together and set aside.
  6. Lower heat to 325F degrees. Add lemon curd to baking dish, then arrange blueberries overtop and press them delicately into the lemon curd. Bake bars for 10 minutes or until lemon curd is just set and still has movement when you shake the pan slightly. Let cool completely, then chill for 2 hours before cutting and serving.
