Paleo Key Lime Squares

One of my all time favourite desserts, reformatted into squares instead of a pie, I give you; KEY LIME SQUARES 🤩. They are 100% Paleo, loaded with good fats, and they do almost nothing to my blood sugar.⁣

In fact, because I eat so low-carb about 95% of the time and am also fairly active, clean desserts like these seem to actually REGULATE MY BLOOD SUGAR 😱!!! Today was the last day of my Continuous Glucose Monitor trial with @nutrisenseio, and I will share a full review of what I’ve learned and my biggest takeaways, check my Instagram stories for more details! In the meantime, here’s the recipe for these beauties….
