Pucker up, folks, because these lemon bars are wonderfully tart and ultra creamy. Lemon bars typically contain a lot of sugar, flour, and fats, but not this recipe. Well, let’s clear one thing up and attest to the fact that they do contain natural sugars and beneficial fats that support heart and brain health.

If you’re familiar with Dherbs, you know that we love lemons. Even though they contain citric acid, they have an alkalizing effect on the body, which helps to balance the body’s pH. Not only are lemons rich in vitamin C, but they also help to stimulate healthy digestion and liver detoxification.
