Lemon Bars - Keto, Low Carb & Gluten Free

These lemon bars are such a sweet indulgence!  They are nice and tart, just as lemon bars should be and a wonderful sweetness that tames down the tartness ever so slightly.

I use my favorite crust that I use for all my bars and in these, it works perfectly!  I also use my Sweetened Condensed Milk  recipe, it’s super easy to whip up and works so well in these bars.

Pour over the partially cooked crust and bake for 20-25 minutes or until just set.  The center will still have a slight jiggle to it.

Allow to cool at room temp for 20 minutes, then chill in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours.  I know, the waiting is the hardest part!!

When you’re ready to serve, dust some swerve confectioners over the top.  Slice into bars and serve!  Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer.

Love your recipes. The printed option always adds another paragraph of text over the recipe itself making it difficult to read through … It’s like double printed text on last page of every recipe i printed. Thank
You for sharing those wonderful recipes!
