Steps

  • First, place two cups of cashews into a medium/large size bowl and cover them with boiling water.
  • Let them soak for at least an hour or overnight. These cashews are for the filling.
  • Next, place crust ingredients into a high-speed food processor and process until crumbly.
  • After ingredients are blended, spray a 99-inch pan with coconut oil cooking spray. Gently press crust evenly into the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
  • Once cashews have soaked for the appropriate amount of time (cashews should be soft and squishy) place all ingredients for the lemon filling (except coconut oil) into a high-speed food processor or Vitamix and blend until smooth.
  • When the filling is a smooth consistency, add coconut oil and mix one more time to fully combine all ingredients.
  • Pour filling contents on top of crust.
  • Spread evenly with a spatula and place pan into the freezer for 1-2 hours to set.
  • When bars are hard and ready to eat.
  • Remove from freezer, top with shredded coconut and lemon zest.
