Makes about 24

For the crust:
3/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup oat flour
1/2 cup Splenda
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 teaspoon guar or xanthan gum (optional, just helps hold it together better)

2 large eggs
1 cup Splenda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Blend crust ingredients and pat into a 8 x 8-inch baking pan spayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for about 18 minutes or until very lightly browned and set (not shiny any more). Beat the ingredients for the filling for about a minute, pour evenly over the pre-baked crust and bake again for about 15-20 minutes or until barely browned and set. Let cool at room temperature, cut into 16 even squares, eat one and cover the rest. Keep cool in the refrigerator.

Would make this again.
Added 1 tsp lemon zest to filling layer to amp up the lemon flavor. Doubled the filling quantity, too. Tasty little treats. 4 stars

Would make this again.
very tasty, but the "crust" was quite crumbly (didn't have guar or xanthan gum - who does?) and the lemon layer a bit thin. Will probably do the same as another reviewer and double the lemon layer. Heck - double both layers! The bars are a bit skimpy and fall apart too easily. BUT they sure are tasty! 4 stars

Awesome! I would def make again :-) I doubled the Filling Part of the recipe for a thicker dessert and it was Perfect! I will make this one again for sure. 5 stars

These are pretty tasty. Ran out of almond flour and sub flax meal. Came out just fine. 4 stars

Would make this again.
I didn't have oat flour so I subbed in soy flour, cut the carb count by using liquid Splenda instead of the dry stuff. I also added cinnamon to the crust 'cause I love me my cinnamon. Cut it into 16 bars and consumed 0.6 carbs per bar.
Recipe was very easy and straightfoward. Wasn't as lemony as I like, will add more lemon juice next time.
3 stars
