Steps

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Process the gluten-free graham crackers until finely ground and put them in a large bowl. Stir in the melted butter and mix. If you see that it is too wet you can add a little more cookies.

Press the cookie crumbs into the bottom of a square pan. You can also cover the pan with parchment paper to remove the bars easily.

Gently press down on the crumbs using your fingers, until the crumbs are a layer at the bottom of the pan.

Beat the eggs with the sugar and the lemon zest. Add the lemon juice and then, the gluten-free premix and the baking powder.

Beat just until incorporated and pour in the pan over the cookie base.

Variations

If you like the base to be higher, you just have to add more cookies and butter, following the proportion of the recipe. You can also use coconut or chocolate cookies.

Storing

Store the lemon bars in the fridge for 3 days or you can freeze them for up three months. To freeze them, first, put the lemon bars on a baking sheet, cut them, and place them in the freezer for a couple of hours. Then wrap them individually for final freezing.
