For this recipe, you can achieve finely textured lemon zest by using a zester or the small side of a grater and then chop it up to have small pieces of zest. Some healthy substitutions you may want to consider while making this lemon bars recipe is to combine 1/2 cup oat flour and 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour. You can adjust and reduce the sugar content if you want to by combining 1/2 cup raw demerara sugar with slightly less than 1/4 cup white sugar. The recipe balances the overall sweetness with these sugar proportions and still tastes great. Adding coconut flakes in the batter as well as sprinkling toasted coconut flakes on top makes these lemon bars really interesting especially if you like coconut. You can finish the final look by adding chopped raspberries as a garnish on top of the bars for a pretty presentation. You could spread a layer of cream cheese and white chocolate whipped together on top to give it an added cheesecake type of a twist. Or try adding a layer of lemon curd for an edgy taste.
