Queen Bey Vegan Lemon Bars

When life gives you lemons, you make vegan lemon bars so chart-topping even Beyonce would approve. Coconut cream balances out fresh lemon zest. Gluten-free oats make these a perfect party favor everyone can enjoy. These tart treats are a refreshing alternative to all-chocolate-everything, plus their sunny yellow shade is like a color/dessert therapy combo.
