Healthy Lemon Bars
When life gives you lemons, DO NOT MAKE LEMONADE… make these Healthy Lemon Bars instead! Because these adorable little treats are exactly how you turn a bad day into a good day.
People correspond the word “dessert” with excess butter, sugar and non-nutritious calories that add to the day’s total. But not these! These Lemon Bars are pretty much the epitome of a healthy dessert — they’re sugar free, high in fiber and protein, gluten free, and taste delicious. Absolutely no butter or refined sugar, but instead, whole grains, complete protein, and natural flavors. The crust is soft and buttery, the filling is rich and tart, and together they pair to make a sweet dessert perfect at any time of day!
These delicious Lemon Bars are made without any sugar, butter, and flour, but they're just as tart and sweet as the original! You'd never know they're sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, and high protein too!

You can find the full recipe and instructions in the Naughty or Nice Cookbook!
I originally wasn't going to share the recipe here because I worked so incredibly hard on publishing Naughty or Nice. But, I'll meet you halfway... how does that sound? I've provided you with all the ingredients AND measurements used in the recipe! That way, you can determine on your own whether or not the cookbook is for you!
So let’s recap. What do you do when life hands you lemons? You make these Healthy Lemon Bars 😉
