Keto Egg Fast Lemon Bars
This fantastic cheesecake type recipe for Egg Fast Lemon bars originally came from a couple of group members in the Egg Fast Stall Breaker facebook support group.
I tried it and I loved it but my big issue with it was the egg to fat ratio.
For followers of the Egg Fast, this is important because it’s so easy to lose track of how many eggs vs how many fats, which is a vital component of the Egg Fast.
Also, the original recipe called for 1 oz cheese for each egg and I think people get better results on this fast with less cheese.
So I have tweaked the recipe to end up with not only using one half the amount of cheese, but also keeping with the 1 egg to 1 tbsp fat ratio.
You can also make these Egg Fast Lemon Bars completely dairy free!
Tools and Ingredients Needed to Make Keto Egg Fast Lemon Bars
- A large blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec ( a Magic Bullet will be too small for this recipe). This Ninja blender is also a great choice.
- Either a 9 x 9 inch pan or a 12 cavity muffin pan or these super cute single serving loaf pans.
- Cream Cheese
- True Lemon Crystals (be sure to get the package that says 0 carbs, 0 sugar)
- Granulated erythritol such as So Nourished sweetener
Changing up the Egg Fast Lemon Bars
Ok, there’s lots of things you can do here! Check out the Lime Bars I made for St. Patrick’s Day!
Here are a few variation ideas to change the flavor:
- The True Lemon Crystals now come in other flavors like Lime and Orange
- Omit the sweetener and use one of the allowed Skinny Mix sugar free drink mixes to flavor the bars. My favorite is Caramel Pecan!
- Instead of True Lemon crystals make use of extracts like Maple, Rum, Banana, Coconut, etc. I’m very intrigued by these flavor sets but they don’t ship to Canada.
- You can make this completely dairy free by substituting coconut oil for the butter and 1 tbsp mayonnaise for each ounce of cream cheese.
Have fun and see what variations you can come up with!
