Tropical Lime Coconut Bars

  • 16Servings

Ingredients

  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 1/4 cups pure maple flakes, divided
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, room temperature (TRY: Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp finely grated lime zest plus 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (from about 4 limes)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, lightly toasted

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Mist an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper. (NOTE: Use a length of paper long enough to partly cover the sides of the pan for easier removal. Do not skip this step; it will be tricky to get the bars out of the pan without it.)
  2. In a medium bowl, combine coconut flour, rice flour, 1/4 cup maple flakes and 1/4 tsp salt, stirring to remove any lumps. Using a pastry cutter (or 2 butter knives), blend in oil until mixture resembles a coarse crumb. Press evenly into prepared pan. Bake until crust is golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine eggs, remaining 1 cup maple flakes, lime zest and juice, shredded coconut and remaining 1/4 tsp salt. Whisk until well combined, about 30 seconds.
  4. Pour egg mixture over baked crust and return to oven to bake until set, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and cool completely. Run a thin knife around edges to loosen. Lift bars out of pan using parchment paper and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 16 squares.
