Gluten-Free Lavender Lemon Bars

gluten-free lavender lemon bars

Gluten-free lavender lemon bars are the perfect spring dessert! They have a crisp, buttery crust, extra lemony filling, and just a hint of lavender. (gluten-free)




  1. The day before you plan to bake, combine sugar and lavender buds in a jar. Close the lid and shake well. Leave overnight to let the sugar infuse.
  2. Strain sugar through a mesh strainer to remove lavender. Set aside buds for garnish (optional).
  3. Heat oven to 350°F. Line an 8″ square baking dish with parchment and set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup lavender infused sugar and 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour.
  5. Melt butter in a microwave-safe dish. Pour over flour mixture and stir to combine. Press mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Bake 12-15 minutes.
  6. While crust is baking, whisk together lemon zest, remaining 1 cup lavender infused sugar, remaining 1/2 tbsp GF flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  7. Add eggs and lemon juice. Whisk well for 1 minute, or until light and fluffy.
  8. Pour mixture over baked crust (no need to cool). Bake for an additional 22-26 minutes.
  9. Cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar and sprinkle with lavender buds (optional). Slice into bars.


*Use 2 tbsp lavender for a more pronounced lavender flavor, and less for a milder flavor.
