  7. While crust is baking, in a small bowl, mix together the lemon juice and unflavored gelatin, set aside.
  8. In a large bowl, beat eggs, then add baking powder, coconut flour, sweeteners and yogurt. Mix well with electric mixer.
  9. Pour gelatin mixture into large bowl and mix.
  10. After crust is done, pour filling over crust and stick back in the oven, 350 or 325 convection for 23-30 minutes.
  11. When the edges are brown and it doesn't jiggle, then take out of oven.
  12. They taste awesome warm, but they won’t stick together well as a bar.
  13. Refrigerate for about 1 hour and they will solidify.
  14. Perfect for a party!!

Notes
*Cream Cheese Frosting makes a ton. You can cut in half if you want.
