Lemon Poppyseed Energy Bites #Keto #Paleo #GlutenFree

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 have the lemon flavor and crunch of poppyseeds like a lemon poppyseed muffin but they’re not light and fluffy – rather they are thick, 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 🙂 I hope you love them as much as we do!!!

*Note- If you are strict Keto these may not be right for you because they have approximately 4 net carbs per bite. When I was coming up with the recipe I didn’t realize how many carbs nut butter has!
