Healthy lemon squares

Easy and healthy lemon squares for the time crunched Mama like myself. This is seriously a family favourite and packs effortlessly for road trips and Beach days.

This recipe was given to be by a PRO fitness athlete at the gym. There is something about LEMONS that reminds me of Italy and that is a great memory. We took the entire family there a few years ago and we were a happy group of 9 roaming the streets of Florence, Pisa and Rome. The culture, food, architecture and people is something else.

Lets jump straight into this RECIPE:

-One medium size bowl

-An 8 by 8pan or Pyrex Dish

-30 Mins of Time -)

-Your Favourite Spatula (Mine is so old but I cant seem to let it go)

Found these stunning pieces at SIMONS



1/2 cup Butter or Coconut oil (from the fridge)

1/2 cup Brown sugar or sugar substitute (I like Xylitol)

1 cup of Gluten free flour or coconut flour

1 pinch of Salt


2 eggs

1/2 cup brown sugar or xylitol

1/2 tsp of Baking Powder

Juice and Zest of 1 large LEMON

1 pinch of SALT

1/2 Tsp Vanilla Essense

Lightly Grease the pan to prepare it

Its time to get working -)

  1. In a medium bowl beat in the butter, sugar and flour until a dough forms.
  2. Press into the prepared pan and back for 18 to 20 min

Remove from the oven when done and leave the oven ON for part 2


  1. Beat together the eggs, gradually add sugar, baking powder, salt, lemon juice and zest
  2. Pour over the warm base and cook for 20 min
  3. Take it out the oven when down and place in the fridge when SAFE for cooling. Typically 1 hour works well.
  4. Pour over the powdered sugar and cut the squares easily.

I serve mine with vanilla yogurt instead of custard

Fresh fruit
