I love lemon desserts, and my non-Paleo mom taste-tested these and also gave them rave reviews.

Chocolate Layer



  • Preheat oven to 350F 
  • In a large glass bowl add the coconut oil and butter and microwave for 45-60 seconds to melt the oils

  • Add the remaining crust ingredients to the bowl and blend well with a pastry blender
  • Line an 8x8 glass baking dish with parchment paper 

  • Pour crust ingredients onto parchment paper and press down well until you have an even layer
  • Cook for 15-17 minutes at 350F, until edges are golden brown

  • Remove from oven (but don't turn it off) 

Chocolate Layer

  • Place a small sauce pan on low heat on the stove
  • Place all ingredients except for the coconut flour into the pan and allow to melt, and stir to combine
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the coconut flour, stir until dissolved
  • Pour onto lemon crust and spread with a knife to form an even layer (this is a thin layer)
  • Place back in oven and cook for another 10 minutes
  • Remove from oven and place the entire square into the fridge and allow to cool overnight
  • Remove from fridge, let sit for 10-15 minutes cut, serve and enjoy!


NOTE: Make the chocolate while the crust is cooking
NOTE: Allowing these to sit in the fridge overnight makes the lemon crust less crumbly as it reabsorbs moisture as it sits
