Dessert is meant to have chocolate in it – but the one exception is when it comes to this rule is lemon bars! I love love love lemon bars! The thing is, I hadn’t had a lemon bar in years because I didn’t know how to make them gluten-free. Then I discovered various gluten free, cup-for-cup flour blends, and I’m happy to say lemon bars are back on my gluten-free dessert table.
When you make these lemon bars, feel free to experiment with different cup-for-cup flour blends. I found that they all have a different taste, but in the end, they all worked. The flours I have tested in this recipe include Cup4Cup, Bob’s 1-to-1 flour, Domata and Bella’s Gluten Free flour – and they all did the job and satisfied the craving.
These lemon bars are a crowd pleaser – but only if they last long enough to serve them to your guests! The crust is buttery, the filling is lemony and sweet, and the powdered sugar topping (optional) makes tops off the bar just right.
