LEMON ENERGY BITES

Last week totally got away from me….I was slammed at work and the week was over in a blink.  The recipes that I have planned to share this week will be on the easy side…..with few ingredients and won’t cause a fuss in the kitchen.  Promise!  These Lemon Energy Bites are super easy to make – totally healthy – completely delicious – and utterly addicting!

If you’ve been reading along for awhile now – you know that I love lemons – especially Meyer Lemons!  And these cookies used to be one of my favorites (back when I was still eating flour, sugar and butter), but these healthy energy bites do the trick when I’m needing a slightly sweet lemon fix!

LEMON ENERGY BITES These energy bites are made out of raw cashews, almond meal, hemp seeds (you can use sesame or chia seeds if you prefer) a wee bit of honey and some lovely lemon juice and zest to give these Lemon Energy Bites their delicate lemony flavor.

I garnished these bites with a few coconut shavings but sometimes I don’t bother.

You’ll want to keep these stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator.   These Lemon Energy Bites are a great healthy snack to have on hand, especially for a mid-afternoon energy boost
