Finally, I have found a lemon tart recipe that feeds my sweet tooth. This Easy Lemon Tart is a delicious combination of the tart taste of lemons and the sweetness of honey. Plus, best of all, it is GAPS legal!
If you have been around for awhile you know that I am not a big sweets eater. Give me cheese! Give me chips! But, there are times…and for those times, this lemon tart recipe not only satisfies my sweet tooth but is also GAPS legal!
If you are not familiar with the GAPS diet, it is an acronym and book title – Gut and Psychology Syndrome. It is a diet used for a period of time to allow your body to heal and getting the gut bacteria healthy.
But, back to this Easy Lemon Tart recipe.
The tartness of the lemon juice combined with the sweetness of the honey yields a deliciously refreshing dessert. It is a light dessert that leaves that sweet tooth satisfied and your tummy pleasantly full!
Sometimes, when a GAPS legal recipe calls for a crust with almond flour, it can be a real pain to get out of the pan. So, I always use parchment paper to line my pan.
To make the Lemon Tart even easier to remove, I use a spring-form pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
Turn This Easy Lemon Tart Recipe Into Lemon Bars
The same recipe can be used to make GAPS legal Lemon Bars. To make bars, spray an 8″ x 8″ pan with nonstick cooking oil and line the bottom with parchment paper. Continue with the recipe and when cooled, cut into bars – enjoy delicious Lemon Bars!
As you can see, this is a very versatile recipe. Make it fancy – a tart – or make it plain – bars. Either way, the Lemon Tart recipe is delicious and healthy!
