Servings: 12-16
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Over very low heat, heat honey and coconut oil just until oil is melted. Stir in the lemon juice and vanilla, and then whisk in the eggs and lemon zest.

In a small bowl, stir together the coconut flour, sea salt, stevia, and baking powder until well combined. Stir this into the coconut oil mixture. After a couple of minutes this is going to get very thick, as the coconut flour absorbs the moisture. At this point, stir in enough of the coconut milk to have the consistency of thick pancake batter (start with a 1/4 cup and see if you need to add more).

Grease an 8 by 8 inch baking pan, and spoon in the batter. Top with the toasted coconut, and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the center feels "set" when you lightly press down with your finger. Remove and cool completely before cutting (if they are still warm, they will fall apart).

Note: I made these in a 6 by 10 inch pan, as well an 8 by 8–since the latter is more common, that is the size I called for, but the other pan worked well.

* For the freshest coconut milk make homemade coconut milk. (See video at this link.)

I would like to sub sugar for the stevia, can you tell me how much it would be in the Gluten-free Lemon Cocanut Blondies? Thank-you.

RE: Dry Stevia Extract : How much is in a package (tsps)--is it powder? Need to give amount. Can liquid stevia be substituted? Or other sweeteners. Thanks

Sugar can definitely be used. Start out with 1/4 cup and add more to taste, if needed. Or, use more honey instead.

Perfectly addictive! Used Meyer lemon from my backyard. My batter needed no coconut milk whatsoever. Might try topping with toasted almonds next time, but really, tastes fabulous as is.
