Tofu Lemon Bars

Egg free, Protein Rich, Good reviews.
I have not made these but would like to try.

INGREDIENTS:

CRUST:

1/2 c coconut oil, melted
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1.5 c whole wheat pastry flour

FILLING:

1/2 c silken tofu
3/4 c cane sugar
1 tbsp grated lemon zest
1/4 c lemon juice
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp whole wheat pastry flour

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Brush an 8-inch-square baking dish with oil, then line with parchment, leaving an overhang, and brush parchment with oil. Set aside.
  2. Make the crust: Stir together 1/2 cup oil, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Add flour and stir until just combined. Press dough into prepared dish and bake until pale golden-brown, about 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the filling: Process tofu, sugar, lemon zest and juice, baking powder, and flour in a food processor until smooth. Pour onto baked crust and bake until set, 25 to 30 minutes more. Let cool completely, then dust with confectioners’ sugar and cut into squares.
