Lemon Lime Bars
Oh summer days how I love you! It’s the perfect time of year for refreshing treats. A fun twist on the typical lemon bars by adding lime juice served along side sorbet
bursting sweetness and a bit of a tang. When made with fresh fruit, good fats, raw honey and sprouted flour, who said dessert can’t be good for you?
Lemon Bars are one of my favorite desserts. They are a simple yet seemingly elegant treat. My house is near a citrus grove where I am able to pick all the lemons, lime, oranges, mandrines and grapefruits that I want. It is a wonderful blessing to have all that fresh citrus a shot walk away.
