  • 2 cups + 2 Tbs fine almond flour
  • 1/8 tsp pink salt
  • 1/4 cup buttery flavor coconut oil or refined coconut oil

  • 2 Tbs ground flaxseed + 1/4 cup water or 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbs lemon zest from one large lemon

  • Preheat oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • In a small bowl, stir together flax and water and set aside to thicken.

  • Add flax mixture, almond flour and salt and mix well.
  • Place dough on baking sheet, cover with parchment and roll to 1 cm (1/3") thickness (I made a 8.25" x 4.5" rectangle). Slice into 12 bars and place 1" apart.
  • Sprinkle bars with chopped rosemary and lemon zest and press in gently with a spatula.
  • Bake for 20-22 min until edges are firm.
