Raw Vegan Lemon Coconut Bars (Gluten-Free)

Sweet, slightly tart, lemony and coconutty… it’s time for Raw Vegan Lemon Coconut Bars!!

I love the texture of this snack/dessert/breakfast because the bottom half is chewy and tiny bit salty and the top half is light, creamy and sweet. The lemon/coconut flavor feels very summery to me. They are stored in the refrigerator (can’t let the cashew layer melt!) so they are extra refreshing.

I kinda feel like the bars need no further introduction…let’s get to the recipe!
