Let’s make some plant-based lemon bars welcome back to the whole food plant-based cooking show where we make plant-based cooking easy I’m Jill and let’s make some mouth puckering lemon bars all right so we’re going to start with our crust I already have my oven preheated to 350 degrees and if you want
The complete ingredient list there’ll be a link in the details below so we’re going to start out with a cup of oats this is just regular organic rolled oats half a cup of almond flour it’s going to give it a really nice rich flavor one tablespoon of nutritional
Yeast that’s going to give it a little bit of The Buttery flavor 1 3 of a cup of pitted dates half teaspoon of vanilla extract and one teaspoon of lemon zest just so you can give it everything that really nice tart lemon flavor all right so now we’re
Just going to put this in our blender you can do this in a food processor or your NutriBullet or a blender works fine too as long as it has like a pulse feature so I’m going to start pulsing it and then maybe mix it until it all starts to kind of stick together
Thank you okay now that it’s all kind of small and crumbly I’m going to add two tablespoons of water you can do this in the beginning too but I think it does better if you grind everything all the dry stuff together it just gets it into a nicer texture
And then the water is what’s going to help it start sticking okay I’m going to scrape down the sides just once some stuff that gets an almond flour gets hung up in the corners there you want to make sure it gets all mixed really well
But you don’t want to over you know you don’t want to over blend it you don’t want it to turn into paste I still want it to look you know a little bit like crumbly almost foreign and I have just a regular sized brownie pan I believe it’s like eight or eight
And a half by eight and a half but you could do this in a round you know whatever shape you want you could do it on a round cake pan and I lined it with parchment paper so that I can pull the bars out and cut them when they’re finished baking
All of that out of there okay now you’re just going to do the rest with your hands you’re just going to press it down into the bottom of the pan and it is a little bit sticky so you have to just keep moving your hands so it doesn’t get stuck on there
But if you feel like it’s too sticky you can always put just a little bit of water on your hands and that’ll keep it from sticking to your hands so much okay there we go it’s all done all pressed in the bottom of the pan now we’re going to stick this in the
Oven for about 10 minutes just so we can kind of seal that and and bring out some of the The Nutty flavor it makes it a little toasted flavor foreign for that I’d like to share some background on our show the whole food plant-based cooking show is crowdfunded

The filling so I’ve got a half a cup of lemon juice half a cup of unsweetened soy milk but like I always say you can use whatever plant milk you like and I have one potato that I have boiled until it’s soft I just cut it into you
Know peeled it cut it into sections and boiled it till it was soft and that is going to be part of the thickener along with some rolled oats and this is a half a cup of rolled oats that’s going to thicken it instead of using something like cornstarch or
Arrowroot powder this is all food two thirds of a cup of pitted dates a half teaspoon of turmeric and that’s going to give it that nice golden yellow color half teaspoon of vanilla extract and two teaspoons of lemon zest okay now we are just going to blend this up until
It’s really really nice and smooth and creamy okay I’m just going to scrape down the sides a little bit make sure everything’s getting blended really well okay let’s see what we got here oh yeah that looks great you can see it’s all there’s no more date chunks it all looks
Pretty uniform and creamy now we’re just going to pour this into our pan and that oven is still on 350 degrees foreign okay you just spread it out evenly and then sometimes it helps too to tap it a little bit just so it kind of Settles
Okay so now it’s going to go into the oven for between 20 and 25 minutes and I’ll show you when it’s done there’s no denying the plant-based diet is a nutrient Powerhouse but did you know there are a handful of hard to get nutrients even well crafted diets are

Okay it just came out of the oven if you want to come in and take a look and now I’m going to show you what I’m going to put on the top because typically um you know people sprinkle powdered sugar or something on the top you can
Leave it just like this or another idea is what I like to do this is just unshredded or unshredded unsweetened coconut and it shred really fine but if you put it into like a little uh strainer like this and you just tap it the really fine stuff will come out
And it kind of resembles you know the powdered sugar or it just makes it a little look a little bit nicer okay it just takes yeah it’s maybe a couple tablespoons or maybe just a tablespoon you know because there’s still a lot left here in the strainer
Okay the last thing you need to do is pop this into the refrigerator and let it cool for anywhere from two to three hours before you cut the slice into it and then I’ll meet you at the table for a taste Okay let’s go in for a taste hmm they turned out perfect so they were in the refrigerator for about an hour and a half and they’re perfectly set up let’s see here mmm Super lemony um and the crust is Rich and sweet um you’re gonna love it come on back next week for another great recipe
