Let's make gluten-free lemon brownies together! Gather your ingredients.

Add the granulated sugar and lemon zest to a large bowl.

Rub the zest into the granulated sugar until the lemon oils release and the sugar turns light yellow.

Pour the melted butter into the lemon sugar mixture.

Whisk for 1-2 minutes, until combined.

Add the eggs, lemon extract and salt.

Mix until smooth.

Add the gluten-free flour blend to the wet ingredients.

Mix with a spatula until no more streaks of flour remain.

Pour the lemon brownie batter into a parchment lined square pan.

Bake for 22-25 minutes, until the edges are brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with some moist crumbs.

To make the lemon glaze, add the powdered sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest to a bowl.

Whisk until no more clumps of powdered sugar remain. The glaze will be thin.

Pour the lemon glaze over the cooled lemon brownies and spread with a spatula.

Let the glaze set completely before slicing.

Cut the lemon bars into 16 equal pieces.

Serve and enjoy!
