ruby red grapefruit bars
 
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup unrefined coconut oil, melted
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup grapefruit juice (about the juice of one ruby red)
  • zest of a grapefruit
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut flour
  • optional: grated coconut for a garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together coconut oil, eggs, honey, and salt.
  3. Add coconut flour and beat until a dough forms. You may need to let it sit for 30 seconds until it thickens enough to form a dough.
  4. Spread the dough into a greased 8 inch square baking pan.
  5. Bake for 13 - 15 minutes or until brown on the edges and baked in the middle. Make sure the crust is baked through the middle.
  6. Decrease the oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  7. While the crust is baking, juice the grapefruit using a juicer or by squeezing.
  8. In a medium bowl, beat together eggs, honey, grapefruit juice, grapefruit zest, baking powder, and coconut flour.
  9. Pour the grapefruit mixture over the warm crust, and return to the oven for 25 -27 minutes or until it has set.
  10. Optional: Garnish with grated coconut.
Notes
For a more tart bar, substitute 1/8 cup grapefruit juice and 1/8 cup lemon juice for the 1/4 cup grapefruit juice.
