Coconut Oil is a must have ingredient in a South Indian kitchen. We use it widely in our day to day cooking. Also it acts a great moisturizer to your skin and has a lot of healing capabilities. Coconut Oil & Shredded Coconut has become a new fad in recent days and it is used from breakfast smoothies to breads and various other recipes. Glad people all over the world are realizing the nutritional values of this oil.
When I saw the #SwearbyIt challenge by Vita Coco hosted at Foodies 100 website, the first thing that came to mind was to prepare a coconut based Indian stew 🙂
But then I decided to come out of my comfort zone and try something different yet delicious. Hence prepared these Vegan Banana Lemon Bars.
I have read recipes about banana being used as a substitute for eggs but personally never tried it. So this is the first time I am baking a vegan bar with short bread base using Vita Coco Coconut oil and eggless banana based lemony layer. It tasted so divine and am glad that the debut attempt turned out well. Next time if you have any leftover over ripe bananas do try this recipe. Also it has no butter or eggs and can be prepared under 40 minutes.
