Creamy Vegan Lemon Bars


These lemon bars are vegan – so no dairy or eggs, instead the creaminess comes from blended coconut and cashews.

They are also sugar free! The sweetness comes from medjool dates and maple syrup.

No one needs to miss out with these indulgent yet guilt-free treats from the Love & Lemons Every Day cookbook.

Creamy Vegan Lemon Bars

Prep time: 10 minutes + freezing
Makes 16 bars

BASE INGREDIENTS
9 Medjool dates, pitted
1c walnuts
3/4c whole rolled oats
1/4t salt
1-2T water

FILLING INGREDIENTS
1 (400g) tin of coconut cream (must be cream, NOT MILK)
1 1/4c raw cashews
2T lemon zest
1/3c maple syrup
1/3c lemon juice
1/8t sea salt

DIRECTIONS
For the base: Place the dates, walnuts, oats, and salt into a food processor and then process until the mixture comes together in a sticky ball. If necessary, gradually add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water.

Line a slice tin with baking paper and press the mixture into the base of the tin. The dough is sticky, so use a sheet of baking paper on top to help smooth it out. Place the tin in the freezer while you make the filling.

For the filling: In a high-speed blender, puree the coconut cream, cashews, lemon zest, lemon juice, maple syrup, and salt until smooth. Pour the filling over the base and freeze overnight.

Thaw at room temperature for 20 minutes before slicing into bars and serving.

NZ LEMONS

Looking for luscious lemons? Then stop your search now, because this lip-smacking lemon is a real sweetie.

With less sour notes than some of its relatives and the sweetness of mandarin, this lemon is one of our favourites.

Rounder in shape and more orange in colour - inside and out - the Meyer lemon has an almost spicy bergamot scent to its zest.

Use it as you would a regular lemon - but with a fraction less sugar to account for the extra sweetness the Meyer adds.

Anyone else dreaming of sweet and sticky lemon tart? Or perhaps roasted citrus tossed into a summer salad?
