Gluten-Free, Keto, Lemon Bars

This delicous recipe for a healthy new spin on lemon bars comes from The Studioist blogger, Shalan. When a couple of Shalan's friends made the switch to a Keto diet, they shared wtih her that they loved the health benefits but were struggling to find Keto-friendly dessert recipes. Inspired by their desire for something sweet, healthy, and low in carbs, Shalan set out to create this recipe for Keto lemon bars.
