Skinny Lemon Bites

I just can't quit with the snack bites. The possibilities are endless with these bite sized treats and I find that they are the perfect snack to have around for a quick energy boost during the day or to curb a sweet tooth at night after dinner.

These skinny lemon bites are perfect for Spring! I love the light, bright flavor of lemon- especially in the warmer months! With only four ingredients, you can whip these up in no time. I doubled the original recipe and added lemon zest for even more lemon flavor. I have been storing these in the freezer and they taste like lemon sugar cookie dough! The perfect healthy springtime treat! We can't get enough.

Skinny Lemon Bites
recipe adapted from House of Yumm

1 cup raw unsalted cashews
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 tsp. lemon zest
2.5 Tbsp. honey 
1/4 tsp. pure lemon extract

Place cashews, oats and lemon zest in a food processor. Pulse until there are no large pieces left. Add the honey and lemon extract and pulse until combined. Scoop out the mixture with a teaspoon and form into small balls. Chill in refrigerator or freezer and enjoy!
