(I made the same mistake my first go!) Now something that occurred to us as we began testing this recipe out. So really this recipe calls for two unique twists. I used TJ coconut cream, but there was still “water” at the bottom of the can, which I wasn’t expecting and didn’t realize until it came rushing into my sauce pan.. Hi, Kaylin.

For a cheesecake lover, that was a no go for me. Use a rubber spatula or your hands to mix together, until it is well combined and creates a dough. Hi Shilpa you can just sub the coconut oil with vegan butter. I mean, lemon desserts are my absolute favourite, so clearly I’m a bit biased. This is amazing!!

If you can’t find it, simply place a can of full fat coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight to chill.

If I have a chance to give it a try I’ll let you know! Alissa, I love the “non weird” ingredients! And also, bake it for 5 minutes longer and broil it on high for 5 more minutes as to not let the lemon curd soak into the “dough”. And if you would like to start the morning right with these lemon energy balls I would highly recommend it.
They were super yummy! Thank you!! Powder is less expensive and the easiest to work with as it dissolves almost immediately so try to find that if you can. I hate the taste of coconut oil and am very sensitive even to a small amount. We wanted to be able to make a lemon bar filling without either of those ingredients. Would I be able to substitute honey for the granulated sugar?

I know it’s been a year since you’ve posted, but you simply must check out Miyokos or Kite Hill products, and all the amazing non diary butter/yogurt/cream/etc out there. like a lemon cream? The crust and the texture of the curd.

A conventional crust would be made with butter, but the coconut oil and a splash of almond milk did a fantastic job of replacing that. Hi can I replace the almond milk with oat milk? ( beta-carotene, vitamin C, calcium, fiber, iron, niacin, potassium, zinc and curcumin, which is awesome for the brain).

In a high powered blender, add all of the lemon filling ingredients. How do you make lemon bars vegan?

Trust me – it’ll be worth it! Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper, so that the paper hangs over the side for easy removal. It gets even better.

We’ve shared our version of classic gluten-free lemon bars a while back and it occurred to me that we haven’t shared our Vegan Lemon Bars yet?! But if you like coconut then it might be a suitable replacement. Fortunately with a few easy swaps and a little creativity it’s entirely possible. Other (non-vegan) recipes bake the lemon curd and the blueberry layers at the same time but i worry that will ruin these. Classic lemon bars are made with a shortbread crust. They’ll have the right consistency and be even more delectable. Place the the lemon juice, sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest, lemon extract, salt, and turmeric (if using) into a small saucepan. These look absolutely perfect. Push dough into the bottom of the greased pan, creating an even layer. Whisk until uniformly combined. I mean – I’ve been getting ENDLESS requests for vegan lemon bars almost since I began Jessica in the Kitchen. Make sure all your powered sugar chunks are broken up and everything whisked together. First off, not nearly enough flour to overcome the oily ness of the coconut oil in the crust. Some include cashews and others coconut milk. I increased the flour amount by 3/4 Cup.

They are the perfect addition to the sweet lemon-y flavour. Much to my disappointment, the short bread crust was not a success….the lemon curd was amazing, but sadly, the crust was tough and stuck to the bottom. I’m thinking maybe a thick jam-like sauce to put on after the bars cool rather than baking it all together? Made these yesterday and they were delicious thanks for the recipe, I did have to bake the crust about 30 mins instead of 20 to get the edges to crisp a bit!

Press evenly into the baking dish. I’m kinda a lemon addict, so take this proposition with a grain of salt. Mix all of the crust ingredients together with a spatula or your hands, until it sticks together. Honestly, I expected to have to throw in some tofu, or agar, or something, because the lemon curd filling you find in lemon bars is typically made with a bunch of eggs. Looking for the best gluten-free recipes? I mean, lemon desserts are my absolute favourite, so clearly I’m a bit biased. Mine are in the oven now. They should come up to about ¾ cup every time from a 14 ounce can. Blend all of the ingredients together until the mixture is very smooth. Also, I would scale down the crust recipe to only half, since I was not tasting the lemon filling enough to my taste. Then scoop the solids of the coconut cream out of the jar. We wanted to be able to make a lemon bar filling without either of those ingredients. I liked the filling, which I would describe as more gelly-like than a creamy lemon curd, but without eggs that’s perfectly normal. That inspired me to ensure that you could put these beside lemon bars made with traditional ingredients and not be able to taste the difference. Thanks for the recipe! I did a trial run using plain old coconut cream and cornstarch instead of eggs, and was totally delighted when it worked. Yeah that is from the egg yolk. We just decided to add some fresh raspberries and oh my word they are SO GOOD. Trust me. Overall I love how these are healthier but still quite accessible. That lemony yellow color that lemon bars have? They’ve always been a favorite of mine and still are to date. I usually don’t mention that what I’ve brought is vegan, and nobody is the wiser. P.S. For the turmeric, start with ⅛ teaspoon then add more if you desire (it doesn't add any taste, only colour). We personally like the vegan butter replacements for that perfect shortbread flavor. I find they will keep well around 7-9days in the refrigerator. So if you would like to make these plain Vegan Lemon Bars sans the raspberry you 100% can – just fair warning there will not be that yellow tint to them. These look incredible, will add these to our list to try out!!! I know it’s hard but these need to be fully set before you cut into them. Now something that occurred to us as we began testing this recipe out. I experience the same type of grilling when I bring a dish! Brand NEW: Vegan Meatloaf !! Also, food coloring is artificial and can seriously affect someone’s brain and mood who eats a cleaner vegan diet, while a tiny bit of turmeric can add a beautiful color and well, turmeric is awesome. It’s also the reason why I knew I wanted to make shortbread crust for these, since it’s the crust I used to always have with lemon bars.

can this curd be used without baking? Glad you liked these bars as much as we do! You can however use coconut oil if you would prefer. These bars tasted great. You’ll be cheating yourself out of the things that make lemon bars so special. I also left out the tumeric as the aesthetic doesn’t matter as much to me as the taste. The bars do take some time to set, but I promise if you’re patient, they’ll do their thing. Apart from that though, I’m talking these are bright, tart, sweet, perfect little treats.

Next time, I think I will use the gluten free crust from Elana’s pantry version and use this curd- as it really was very yummy. Copyright © 2014 - 2020 Plant-Based Easy Recipes by Veggie Balance, Recipe, images, and text © Veggie Balance, Lemon Bars are a classic sweet and tart treat. Yum! I hope they didn’t get too runny now from this :-/ I also worry that I didn’t bake the crust as long as I should’ve, but I didn’t want to overcook it either… They’re cooling as we speak. Definitely the kind of dessert that belongs on your dessert bar, right beside my pumpkin cheesecake brownies. Nicole is a life long vegetarian and the author of the popular vegan cookbook, Weeknight One Pot Vegan Cooking. As the cornstarch cools, even though it doesn’t right away seem thick, WILL thicken. I can’t wait to taste it. . P.s.

Nope, but it could easily be. Fingers crossed! hoping to be able to use it with aquafaba pavlova thanks!! So now you can put these classic lemon bars without any eggs recipe in your arsenal. The crust, however, did not impress me. When I made them, I let them cool for a few hours and then set in the fridge overnight, although 4 hours in the fridge should be enough time. I truly appreciate the suggestion to substitute coconut oil vs butter as I’m super lactose intolerant already and willl likely follow this road now always. But seriously, I impressed my die-hard anti-vegan coworkers with this recipe. I’m not sure because mine went right into the bars. Give a whisk. Can you believe that summer is about to end?! First, you’re going to mix up the vegan shortbread crust. Great recipe! Thanks! I did not use lemon extract and these were still very lemony and tart.

And I do occasionally come across a friend or family member who won’t try something on account of the fact that it contains tofu, agar, or some other thing only a vegan would put into their dessert. In a small bowl, mix together almond flour, baking flour, powdered sugar, melted butter.
