Lemon Poppy Seed Snack Bites

Lemon poppy seed snack bites

I’ve mentioned before how much I love fast snacks.  Something I can just grab in a hurry yet I know it’s going to be satisfying.

As much as I love all things peanut butter, sometimes, I just want a different flavour with some zing!

That’s what this recipe will give you – ZING!

If you are a lemon fan, you are going to love these. They remind me of a yummy muffin, but without all the guilt.

This recipe calls for a vanilla protein powder. You can use one of your preference, but my choice is always the ones made by USANA Health Sciences.  I use their Vanilla Nutrimeal in this recipe. (There is more information right here on my favourite products list regarding this product).

So get ready for a lemon party!

Lemon Poppy Seed Snack Bites
 
By:
Recipe type: Snack
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups old fashioned rolled oats (gluten free if preferred)
  • ½ cup Almond flour
  • 3 scoops (7 Tbsps) USANA Vanilla Nutrimeal
  • 2 Tbsp poppy seeds
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • Zest of 1 large organic lemon (or 2 small)
  • 6 Tbsps freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsps melted coconut oil
Instructions
  1. In a high-speed blender, blend the rolled oats until they turn into a fine flour.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats flour, almond flour, Vanilla Nutrimeal (or protein powder of your choice), poppy seeds, and lemon zest. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Add the lemon juice, maple syrup, and coconut oil. Mix until well combined.
  4. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Form tablespoon sized balls and place them on the sheet.
  6. Freeze for at least 10 minutes.
  7. Store in the freezer and use when ready to snack.
Notes
I have not tried other protein powders so you may have to play with the consistency.
You can make the snack bites any size you want, but I found a tablespoon size was just right.
If the lemon flavour is too much, you can adjust the amount of zest to your taste.
I use a Nutri Bullet to make the oat flour.

Give this recipe a try and add it to your arsenal to beat the snack attack.

Enjoy!
