Paleo Lemon Bars:The Guilt-Free Summer Dessert

My boyfriend brought home about 25 lemons from work last week so I had to find a way to use them! I made a batch of these on Saturday and they were gone by Sunday so I made another batch today! They are not too sweet and not too indulgent, but they taste SUPER indulgent! ENJOY!
