Low-Point Lemon Bars

What makes a delicious lemon bar?! For me it’s the buttery crust combined with the refreshing taste of lemon.
The key to making these over the top delicious is the combination of adding lemon extract with fresh lemon juice.

I can’t wait to try this recipe! Do you think it would work with applesauce instead of butter?

I am excited to try these! I am testing them with monk fruit sugar however and they are currently in the oven. They smell so good <3

Are you sure the amount of lemon juice is correct? 3-4 lemons do not make 1/4 c of juice...more like 1 1/4 c.
