Diet Plans for Crossfit such as Paleo Blueberry Lemon Bars

I rubbed an 8 inch square glass pan with coconut oil.

 I stirred up the following ingredients all at once:
1 1/2 cups almond meal
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 heaping TBSP coconut oil, melted
2 TBSP honey
2 tsp vanilla

I spread this out in the prepared glass pan and baked it in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.

The next layer is the lemon yumminess.
First, I squeezed 1/2 cup of lemon juice and set it aside.

I took a saucepan and put:
 3 organic eggs
 1/4 cup raw honey (or agave nectar, if you prefer)
1/2 tsp grated lemon zest

I stirred this up. Then I put it on the stove on medium low. From this point it must be stirred almost continuously or it will make a scrambled egg kind of thing on the bottom, and you don't want that. (although it will still taste good)
 While this started to heat up, I put:
 6 TBSP of coconut oil, one at a time into the egg mixture. I kept stirring.... letting the coconut oil melt and when it all melted.
 I added the 1/2 cup of lemon juice. (all at once lol) I continued stirring til it began to thicken. (If you aren't sure if it has thickened, it hasn't thickened enough. It will happen and it is worth it!)

When it was thicker, I poured it over the top of the layer in the glass pan and spread it out.
The last thing I did was wash 1 cup of blueberries and pushed them into the lemon layer. They went into the fridge for an hour and then.......WOW
These blueberry lemon bars are part of our Crossfit diet meal plans

I always double this recipe now and use a 9 x 12 pan. it's just too fabulous!
