by: Lara Katz

These lemon squares are not just good for Passover, they are actually DELICIOUS lemon squares! Lemon squares are a sweet and tart treat any time of the year, but these ones are suited perfectly for Passover. And bonus: they're easy to make with just a few ingredients.


1 can coconut macaroons
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup lemon juice (squeezed from 1 large lemon)
2 tbsp potato starch
powdered sugar for dusting on top



  • Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick baking spray well.
  • In a food processor mix coconut macaroons until they are fine crumbs. 
  • In a medium size bowl combine coconut macaroon crumbs with melted coconut oil.
  • Press coconut macaroon/coconut oil mixture into bottom of sprayed pan.
  • In a food processor mix together sugar, eggs, lemon juice and potato starch until smooth.
  • Pour mixture on top of crust.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes or until outside edges are browned.
  • Allow to cool. Dust with icing sugar.

Serves 6-10 people


* The crust on these lemon squares gets absorbed by the filling. If you want a thicker crust double the macaroons and coconut oil.
