We went to Marian's for a day last week, and she said something about lemon bars.  I've been thinking about them ever since and had to find a vegan recipe and make some. The original recipe can be found on Savvy Vegetarian.

Mike, Mariah, and I really liked them. Elaine (2) said they were too spicy.


1/4 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. baby food prunes
1/4 c. powdered evaporated cane juice
1 c. whole wheat flour


1/2 c. silken tofu
1 c. evaporated cane juice
zest from 2 lemons
1/3 c. fresh lemon juice
2 T. whole wheat flour
2 T. cornstarch

1 T. powdered evaporated cane juice

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cream coconut oil, prunes, and powdered evaporated can juice with an electric mixer.
  • Add flour, and beat until the dough just comes together.
  • Press the crust mixture into the bottom of a greased 8x8 baking pan.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Remove crust from oven and place on a wire rack to cool while you make the filling.
  • Blend filling ingredients in blender until very smooth.
  • Pour over the cooled crust.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until the filling is set.  (It will also continue to set as it cools.)
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • Sprinkle top with sifted powdered evaporated can juice.
