Sugar free Lemon bars

We went down and picked oranges today. Since I can't eat them until I'm full anymore......LOL , we are donating them to the local food bank.

On the way up the hill I noticed the lemon tree was also bursting with fruit........it is a hot day here (77 degrees) and my mouth started watering for lemon squares.

I found this recipe online......I had a recipe from someone that used sugar free lemon jello and no other sugars but can't find the recipe anywhere.

 

So.....I will be giving this one a try.....it says 5.7 carbs per serving!!!!
