    You ask – how are these lemon bars?  They don’t look yellow like they do in the store.  The reason is coconut sugar.  The traditional lemon poppy seed muffins / bars that you get at the store are made using white sugar and all purpose flour that raises your glycemic index and insulin in return.  These are made using pure organic coconut sugar which is derived from the sap of the coconut tree and is by nature low in glycemic index.  The only bargain is it turns your dough brown – i’ll take it!  Will you?


    These also have a combination of sprouted whole wheat flour and almond flour in the batter and acid from lemons is known to lower glycemic index of any food, so actually this little bar is a VERY HEALTHY treat, and waistline friendly.  One bite into it and you will fall in love with its lemony goodness!
