Gluten Free Citrus Bars

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup gluten free flour blend (I use Compliments gluten free flour blend available at Sobeys and Safeway)
  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance vegan “butter”, softened
  • 1/4 cup gluten free icing sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a square baking dish with parchment paper.
  • I find this step very important for once bars are cooled it is easy then to lift the whole bar from the pan and then slice.
  • In a medium bowl use a hand mixer to combine the gluten free flour blend, vegan “butter” and icing sugar until it resembles coarse sand.
  • Press into the square baking dish.
  • Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until lightly brown.
  • Remove and cool while you are preparing filling
  • In a small bowl beat the eggs, zests, lemon and lime juice, salt and baking powder with a hand mixer until light and foamy.
  • Pour filling over crust and place bake in oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • Cool on counter and then place in refrigerator to chill for a bit.
  • Slice and serve!!
  • Enjoy!
