Dairy-Free Key Lime Coconut Bars

by Sheryl

For a delicious tropical treat, tart low carb key lime bars made with coconut milk and coconut oil. Dairy-free without gluten, and great Keurig Green Mountain coffee giveaway. The Lime is the secret to this recipe. Small and tasteful, and easier to cook and bake with than traditional limes. At least, they are when you squeeze them by hand. It took me to make some low-carb lime bars with a whole bag, to get enough juice. So, I used Persian limes for this recipe. Yeah, this is because I had to wear for the juice every bit of these adorable little key limes. You know what? It is all worth it. You’ve got a stunning tart and sweet taste that will whisk you to the tropics at first taste. Combine it with coconut and irrespective of how you stay in Modern English.
