Key Lime Pie Bars (Paleo) | Leverage Ambition

Advertisements

My best friend grew up in the Florida Keys, on an island called Islamorada. Key West is no short of Key Limes and they use these limes in all aspects of cooking and drinking. From drinking lime based margaritas or using the lime juice on fish, key lime trees are all over the place and are transported throughout the world for everyone to enjoy.

They are obviously best when picked fresh from the trees.

Key Lime Pie is a staple of the Key West cuisine, and here is a paleo friendly recipe you will absolutely love.
