Key Lime Bars

Share it Please
This has to be one of my all-time favorite desserts. Besides, brownies and ice cream.

Key lime bars are perfect for the summer. Sour with a hint of sweet, cool, refreshing, and most importantly- delicious.
Refreshing key lime bars yum!

I used to make them all the time. But from I box. When my mom went gluten-free she bought Elana Amsterdam's cookbook and I made her recipe. With a few tweaks it immediately became a family favorite.

At first, I hated key lime bars. I thought they were gross (probably because I brushed my teeth before I had a bite *does a facepalm*). What was I thinking!?

Apparently, I wasn't.

1 1/2 c. almond flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2 T. grape seed oil
1 T. honey
1 T. vanilla extract

1/4 c. grape seed oil
1/4 c. honey
3 eggs
1/2 c. key lime juice

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. For crust, mix together almond flour and salt in a medium sized bowl.
3. In a separate bowl, combine grape seed oil, honey, and vanilla extract.
4. Mix the wet mixture with the dry and stir til thoroughly combined.
5. Grease and 8'' baking dish and dust with almond flour. Press crust into dish.
6. Bake 15-17 minutes or until lightly golden.
7. Meanwhile, whip together grape seed oil, honey, eggs, and key lime juice well.
8. When crust is finished, pour filling into baked crust.
9. Bake for another 15-20 minutes until topping is golden.
10. Let cool for 30 minutes, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
11. Cut into squares, top with cool whip or whipped cream, and enjoy!

Inquiry of the Day:

Have you ever tried something and didn't like it at first or vice versa?

I can think of two examples for each way. My mom's friend bought freeze-dried green beans and while she and her family were staying for a few days had Mom and I try some. At first I thought they were really disgusted, but then they grew on me! Sneaky green beans.

I also used to love mushrooms. I can't stand them anymore! I don't know what's up with that. Oh well. In my opinion, I'm not missing much.  


  1. Wow, these look incredible and I love how simple the ingredient list is too! Thanks for posting!

    1. Your welcome! Thanks for commenting and have a great weekend!

  2. These look great! I've been craving something with lime - I'll have to give these a go :-)

    1. Thanks! You're egg-free though, right? I'm not sure how to substitute the eggs but I was thinking instead of using lemon for your high tea bars you could use lime. I'm sure that would be just as good. Have a great day!


I love comments so please comment often! Thanks!
