Paleo Margarita Bars

Wikipedia tells us that a “dessert bar” has the texture of a firm cake but is softer than a cookie. In any case, you prepare them in a pan then cut into squares or rectangles. They are a staple at bake sales, but are also growing in popularity in coffee houses. Of course, our chef has created a twist on the Lemon Bar with our Paleo Margarita Bars. For those following a paleo lifestyle the best part is that it is made of real food and no preservatives. You will impress your friends when they try these tasty treats.

FOR THE CRUST
  1. 1 1/2 cups Almond Flour
  2. 5 T. Tapioca Flour
  3. 1/4 tsp sea alt
  4. 2 Tb. Honey
  5. 4 T. Ghee (cold)
FOR THE TOPPING
  1. 4 Eggs
  2. 3 Egg Yolks
  3. 1/2 cup Honey
  4. 1/2 Cup lime juice
  5. 1/4 tsp. sea Salt
  6. 4 T. Ghee
  7. 3 T. Coconut Milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9 baking pan with parchment paper so that the paper goes all the way up the sides of the pan.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse together the almond flour, tapioca starch, and salt. Add the honey and ghee and process until smooth dough forms.
  3. Press the dough evenly into a 9x9 baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake the crust for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until it starts to turn golden brown on top.
  5. While the crust is baking, make the filling. In a large saucepan, whisk together the eggs, honey, lime juice, and salt until very smooth. Place the pan on medium/high heat and add in the ghee. Whisk constantly until the ghee melts and the mixture comes to a boil.
  6. As soon as the mixture boils, remove it from the heat.
  7. Whisk in the coconut milk and pour the filling on top of the par-baked crust.
  8. Return it to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes, or until the filling is glossy and set.
  9. Let cool completely.
  10. Refrigerate for a few hours and slice into bars.
  11. Keep refrigerated.
