Looking for a simple, wholesome, healthy snack? Try this Whole 30 Lemon Poppy Seed Energy Bites Recipe! Great for packing in lunches and meal prepping! This post is created in partnership with Lucky Vitamin. I’m an ambassador for them and LOVE getting alllll of my favorite health-related products from them!
These energy bites are about to be your new favorite snack!! They’re like little chewy, portable, way healthier Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins! I’m pretty sure I’ve said it on here before, but Tyler is in love with all things Lemon and Lime. Key Lime Pie is his favorite dessert, and he’s always asking me to make him Healthy LemonPoppy Seed Muffins to have for breakfast. I conquered the muffin request a while back with these Healthy Lemon Chia Seed Muffins. They don’t have poppy seeds in them, but you could easily swap them in. I just like that chia seeds have a little bit more nutritional benefit. His latest request? Lemon Poppy Seed Scones.
A few weeks ago, Tyler was asking me to make him Lemon Poppy Seed Scones. I had just placed an order on LuckyVitamin and purposely included a bag of poppy seeds in it so I could make them…but then I decided to do a Whole30. I don’t know about you guys – but I simply do not have the will power to be able to make scones while refraining from eating gluten, grains, and sugar. That seems like torture and I knew I wouldn’t make it. So I compromised and made these Whole 30 Lemon Poppy Seed Energy Bites!
Now, if you’re doing Whole 30 – wait just a second before you get your hopes up. I have to level set your expectations here. These do not taste like scones.. It would be hard to replicate the buttery, flaky deliciousness of a scone in an energy bite, and I’m not about to lie and tell you these do. Buuuut they’re pretty tasty, and would be a much healthier alternative to a scone for a quick breakfast or snack! They’re sweetened with dates, packed with healthy fats from the nuts, and have the perfect amount of lemon zest/juice to give them a little zip! Here’s how to make them:
- ¾ cup pecans
- 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
- ¼ cup dates
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon collagen peptides
- 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
- In a food processor or NutriBullet, blend all ingredients except poppy seeds.
- Once batter is completely blended, stir in poppyseeds.
- Roll in to bites + store in the fridge until ready to eat.
The best part about this recipe, is that with the exception of the lemons – I got everything I needed from LuckyVitamin. I never thought I would be the type of person to buy groceries online, but now I totally am. I still go to the store for all of my produce/meat, but when it comes to pantry staples… I order online. It’s so much cheaper and easier. I could have easily gone to the grocery store to get the things I needed, but why be bothered hunting around for the right ingredient, and paying more for it? LuckyVitamin ships SO quickly that I think everything got here in under 2 days. Game.Changer!! They also don’t just have food… it’s where I get all of my cleaning/clean beauty products too! I wrote all about my favorite products from there in this post about 7 Simple Ways to Detox Your Life. If you’re doing a September Whole 30, I would order up and prep these ASAP – it will make your lives 100x easier!
