wholemeal lemon bars

sounds gross i know. lemon bars are supposed to be buttery bad for you goodness but since i’m on a healthy kick, i tried to make it slightly better for you. try them out!

ingredients:
1 1/2 cups of wholemeal all purpose flour
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
170 grams of butter (or 1 1/2 american sized sticks) – cut into small pieces and room temp
4 eggs
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon of wholemeal all purpose flour
1/2 cup of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of lemon zest
1 1/2 cups of sugar
powdered sugar to serve

preheat oven to 350°F or 170°C

step 1: the base
with your hands, mix the 1 1/2 cups of wholemeal flour, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and butter together until flour is mixed in but still looks crumbly. press the mixture into a baking pan – i used a 10×10 baking dish. bake for about 20 – 25 minutes or until it turns golden brown. remove from the oven but keep it on.

step 2: the yummy part
beat the eggs, lemon juice, sugar, lemon zest and 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon of flour together until well mixed. pour the mixture on top of the baked crust and throw it in the oven for another 25 mins or until the mixture is set (use a toothpick!). remove from the oven when it’s ready – it should have a golden brown layer on top. let it cool before cutting. sift powdered sugar on top before serving!

hope you like it! i ate a bit too much :/
