Lemon Poppyseed Energy Bites {Keto, Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegan}

*Want more lemon recipes? Check out my Paleo Lemon Bars, Creamy Vegan Lemon Bars, and Paleo Poppyseed Muffins 🙂

As I’m sure you can tell by now (since this is the 4th treat like this in a row that I’ve posted!) I LOVE no-bake poppable treats! They are easy to make, filling, portable, and the perfect snack or dessert in-between meals.

These Lemon Poppyseed Energy Bites taste like sunshine to me – well, anything lemon tastes like sunshine to me 🙂 No, but really they are rich, thick, dense, and have the flavor of a lemon poppyseed muffin – but way healthier! They are super filling and full of healthy fats, protein, and are low-carb, if that’s your thing. The guys in my house aren’t huge fans of lemon, but I don’t mind because that just leaves more for me and my daughter, we adore all things lemon 🙂

*Note- If you are strict Keto these may not be right for you because they have approximately 9 grams of carbs per bite. When I was coming up with the recipe I didn’t realize how many carbs cashew butter has!
