Soft Baked Vegan Lemon Bars

Updated: Jan 24

These aren't your typical lemon bars.

Nope. No filling, just bar. Think of it as a mini cake that only you get to enjoy.

Sounds great right?!

I got the idea to make this recipe when I was looking through my pantry for a snack to eat when I came across some old "healthy" granola-esque bars that were honestly a #fave of mine growing up and continue to be a fave of everyone else in my household.

So I looked at the ingredients to see if I could have one... and BOOM the little words at the bottom of the package said, "Contains Egg, Dairy, Wheat, and Soy"

3 out of the four things I do not eat, so I sighed heavily for dramatic effect and decided well I guess I have to make my own now.

So here we are.

These soft-baked bars are infused with lemon flavor and drizzled with a zesty icing. These vegan bars will satisfy any sweet tooth! All you need are 8 simple plant-based ingredients.

What you should know about this Vegan Lemon Bars recipe:

  1. It is 100% Vegan (aka there is zero dairy, egg, or any animal product in here)

  2. Easy & quick. Time is so essential, so I wanted to make this easy vegan dessert as quickly as possible.
