Gluten-free, dairy-free Coconut Lemon Bars are lightly sweet, slightly sour, and make the perfect dessert to bring to your next party, backyard bbq, or enjoy at home when you are craving a little goodness.
When I prepare desserts for my gatherings, I like to include a lemon flavored option since it’s always a welcomed offering for those who prefer a fruit dessert over chocolate or vanilla. This make-ahead dessert is decadent yet light with a moist, chewy oatmeal coconut crust bottom topped with a soft lemon topping.
Though the citrus flavor of lemon dessert is a wonderful option for warm weather gatherings it makes a lovely option for holiday and special occasions through out the year. I recently made these bars for the dessert table at my son’s graduation party and between the chocolate cake and vanilla donuts, the lemon bars disappeared from the tray long before the others.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinary.butterfly on Instagram or @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest, or by using the hashtag #culinarybutterfly on Facebook
