Lime Sugar Cookie Bars with Mint Icing

Nicolette Stramara


Bringing a tropical twist to a classic favorite, these delightful sugar cookies are flavored with zesty lime and covered in a smooth and creamy mint icing. Made with simple (and gluten-free) ingredients, such as fresh mint, coconut cream and honey, they’re reminiscent of a mojito – but in a family-friendly cookie bar-form. Beyond the refreshing flavor combination, they’re baked in pan and then cut, which means you don’t have to roll dough, get out the cookie cutters or frost individual cookies. It’s the same flavor and soft, moist texture without any of the extra work – because aren’t tropical paradises supposed to be this easy?

Recipe Notes

*If you prefer, you can use your favorite gluten-free baking mix to replace the oat flour, almond flour and tapioca flour. Please keep in mind, the texture may vary with this substitution.

**Each can of coconut cream is different. If your cans do not form two distinct layers, one made of cream and the other of water, add arrowroot powder or tapioca powder 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.
