Lemon Meringue Pie Energy Bars | Get Inspired Everyday!

Lemon Meringue Pie Energy Bars


These energy bars have been a long time favorite and I hope you enjoy them too!


  • 2 cups raw cashew pieces
  • 1 + 1/2 cups big flake coconut
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, Grade A
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt


  1. Reserve 1/2 cup of the big flake coconut to add later.
  2. Place all the ingredients, except the reserved coconut into a food processor and pulse until the mixture starts forming a dough.
  3. Add the remaining 1/2 cup coconut and pulse until your desired texture is reached. I like to stop when there is still visible pieces of coconut.
  4. Line an 8″x8″ baking pan with plastic wrap and pat/smooth the dough evenly into the pan.
  5. Holding the corners of the plastic wrap, lift the bars out of the pan and cut into 12 bars.
  6. Serve within a few days, or wrap and freeze for later.


I like to use cashew pieces because they’re much cheaper than whole cashews!
