Vegan Lemon Squares

February24

These are NOT the ones I made, but if you use regular sugar I'm sure they will look just like this!!

I made these for our impromptu New Years Party this year because they are so quick and simple to make, and although they are sugarless and vegan, they were still pretty good. I actually didn’t think I would bother making them again because although they were good – they weren’t my favorites. BUT My Mother in law is in town and she isn’t eating sugar or eggs, and it’s her birthday, so I thought I’d try these again and while I’m at it, why not post it??
They came out better this time. Maybe because I wasn’t focused on anything else AND I wasn’t drinking while cooking them.  (It was New Years Eve last time , don’t forget.) I replaced sugar with Coconut Palm Sugar and it changes the color from yellow to caramel color. So you have to tell your brain you are eating lemon or it won’t recognize it. Weird how that works. These are another great treat for my boy who LOVES them and rarely gets to eat stuff like this.
I hope you like them too! They are almost completely guilt free. Hooray.

You can see the original recipe here: Veg-Web Time Warp Lemon Squares (odd name, right??)

Crust:
1 cup all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons Earth Balance Butter
1/4 cup Coconut Palm Sugar (I grind this with my Morter and Pestal to be a little finer)

Filling:
4 1/2 teaspoon Ener-G Egg Replacer
6 tablespoons water
3/4 cup Coconut Palm Sugar (I grind this too, with my Morter and Pestal to be a little finer)
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon real vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2-3 lemons, zested and juiced

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For crust, in a bowl, combine crust ingredients and press into 8 X 6″ pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

2. For filling, while crust is baking, beat the Ener-G Egg Replacer  and water in a mixer (if possible) until foamy. Add the remainder of the filling ingredients and mix together on a lower (mixing) speed. Pour over the crust, and bake 20 minutes more, or until set. Cool.

Enjoy them!!
