Vegan Lemon Tart with Shortbread Crust

vegan lemon squares

I am going to admit, I do have a sweet tooth and I swear it has taken on new heights since I am breastfeeding! I have literally been craving a sweet and tangy, gooey, citrussy slice for weeks!

I also had my mind set on a shortbread crust which to my own surprise is extremely simple to veganize, yeiii. I found the perfect recipe over at @heartofabaker but made some minor changes to it.

You will need:

  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 Coconut oil (soft or melted)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • Pinch of salt


  • 1 Ripe banana
  • Zest and juice of 3-4 organic lemons
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp tapioca flour
  • 1 Tsp guar gum
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 Drops of dōTERRA Lemon oil
  • Powdered sugar (for dusting)
