Keto Coconut Lime Bars

 

These keto lime bars are a tangy treat sure to satisfy your sweet tooth! Keep refrigerated. Garnish each piece with a small lime wedge, if desired.

 

INGREDIENTS

Filling:

  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 5 large eggs, beaten

 

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8×8-inch baking dish.
  2. Combine almond flour, sweetener, coconut flour, lime zest, and salt in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly. Cut in butter with a fork until combined and no lumps remain. Press crust mixture down into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Whisk lime juice, coconut milk, sweetener, butter, and zest in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Mix until sweetener is dissolved; do not let boil. Add beaten eggs slowly, a little at a time, whisking constantly until mixture is foamy and airy and starts to thicken, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove filling mixture from heat and spread evenly over the crust.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until filling is set in the middle, 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Toast shredded coconut in a small skillet over medium heat until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle coconut and lime zest topping over the bars. Let cool and refrigerate completely before cutting into bars.

Footnotes

  • Cook’s Notes:
  • The Allrecipes nutrition calculator doesn’t factor in net carbs, so the amount of carbs listed appears higher than what is really in the bars. I used Swerve® as the sweetener here, and while it does contain 3 to 4 g of carbs per teaspoon, the ingredients in Swerve do not affect blood sugar, so the carbs it contains are considered non-impact. Because of this, a common practice is to subtract fiber and sugar alcohols from the carb total, making it zero carb. I have calculated the correct carbs for this recipe as 5.1g per serving, not 17.8g.
  • You can use granular sweetener in the filling mixture, though I prefer the powdered version since it dissolves better. You can pulse granular sweetener in a blender or food processor to achieve a powdered consistency. For a sweeter bar, add an additional 1/4 cup of sweetener to the filling mixture.
  • For 1 cup of lime juice, you will need approximately 8 limes.
