Instructions
Topping
  1. Whisk your eggs, honey, and lemon juice together in a small sauce pan
  2. Place on your stove over medium/high heat and add coconut oil
  3. Stir until coconut oil melts and then continue stirring until the mixture thickens and starts to bubble
  4. Once thick, remove from the heat and place in a bowl in your refrigerator to cool
Crust
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 Degrees fahrenheit
  2. Place your almonds and macadamia nuts in a food processor and blend until in small chunks, you do not want a flour consistency, you want little chunks
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine nuts with the honey, melted coconut oil, and eggs and mix well
  4. Grease an 8x12 inch baking pan, I used coconut oil and then spread your nut mixture over the entire pan
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until your crust is done, it will pass the toothpick test
  6. Cool your crust completely before applying your topping
  7. Once your crust is cool, spread your lemon topping over your crust, sprinkle as much unsweetened shredded coconut as you want over the topping, and then return to the refrigerator or freezer, I like mine better frozen
  8. Keep it refrigerated or frozen until you serve it and then return the remaining to the fridge/freezer
  9. Enjoy

  1. Ow my, these I really have to try! I bet with some whipped coconut cream on top they will be completely heavenly, almost like Grandma’s Lemon Meringue Pie :)

  2. I was out of macadamia nuts, so I subbed walnuts. I about foundered on the finished product…seriously! OH – but these make me happy <3 I want to try it with a meringue topping. Definitely one of my favorites!

  3. I love lemon bars and these are perfectly tart. I’m not a fan of macadamia nuts so I opted for a different crust.

  4. Hi! I am about to make these because I finally have all the ingredients, but was wondering if the 1 cup of each both of the nuts comes out to 1 cup of each when they are ground up? I have almond and cashew flour so I’d like to use those than the nuts.
