Keto/Low Carb Lemon Bar Recipe

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

If you know me at all, you know that I’m a chocoholic, so lemon bars were never really on my radar. Until I tried one that my pastry chef at my work made. It was sweet, lemony, creamy and super delicious. It has been quite some time since I had that lemon bar but I believe I got pretty darn close with this recipe.
