If you can't already by now, I am a big fan of lemon! I love using lemon in my recipes. I am always making these protein bites for a healthy treat to snack on, and I decided I wanted to make a lemon flavored one. I'm seriously obsessed with these Lemon Protein Bits. Make it with me!
This recipe is light, freshing, and lemony! It's made with old fashioned oats, lemon zest, shredded coconut flakes, and coconut butter! I saw this Coconut Almond Butter at Sprouts and I just knew I wanted to use it as a base in my next protein bite recipe. It's delicious! But it can be expensive. You can substitute it for almond butter and it'll still be divine!
These protein bites save me on busy weeks! They are sweet, chewy, and totally irresistible. Plus, they are low calorie, high protein, so there is nothing to feel guilty about!
