No Bake Lemon Pistachio Shortbread Cookie Bites! Vegan and Paleo friendly Bites that taste just like Shortbread Cookie but are actually good for you! Super easy to make, refreshing, light, and naturally gluten free!
It’s ALREADY MARCH 9TH!!! Geeze, sorry. I just don’t get how all of sudden it’s almost Spring and mid March and we’re frockling in all things Easter (carrot cake), Irish, Lemony, green, and more. But… I’m totally on board because that means HEALTHY BITES recipe. Yes, I have festive no bake lemon pistachio shortbread cookie recipe for you. In the form of Healthy Bites that is, and a giveaway (which I’m uber excited about) to go along with it.
But first, the story of these lemon pistachio shortbread cookie bites. Because there’s always a story. You know this!
So my husband (the kiwi) is obsessed with shortbread. The more sugar, the better. Actually, the more the more shortening the better. Whatever crumbles like a shortbread cookie the better. And trust me when I say he is the master at picking cookies that crumble … like all over the floor. Haha. He’s also obsessed with lemon bars. Those no bake lemon bars. Do you see where I’m going with this?
FOOD is my love language, so naturally, I wanted to create a something similar to a lemon bar or shortbread cookie for him. But I’d also like to spare the pound of sugar and shortening in each recipe. Hey, the gift of health is also important, right?
Hence this lemon pistachio shortbread cookie -ish healthy bite recipe! When you combine the coconut flour with the ground pistachios and a bit of honey, you get one fantastic sweet crumble. Add that to almond butter and well… there’s your buttery goodness. You get my point, right? Copycat bites made healthy without even baking. Winner!
OKay, so this maybe be my husband’s favorite cookie bites, but this POST has my “FAVORITE things” to giveaway. Along with the healthy bites that is.
REVOL pottery. Oh my ya’ll, I’m in love with their whole collection. Remember that spiralized salad I posted Monday? Check out that pottery. It’s REVOL porcelain bakeware and pottery. I also just made not one, but 3 square cakes in their everyday square square baker dish. More on that recipe later though.
A little about REVOL – And I’m using their words because they explain their company it so nicely.
REVOL is the only cook-and-serve porcelain manufacturer in the world that is +220 years old and still family owned by the original founding family.
REVOL still manufactures in the Rhone Valley of France; world renown for great wines and gastronomy.
Our porcelain is fired at a very high temperature, thus ensuring our products are 100% hygienic, easy to clean and thermal shock resistant, plus all of our products are oven, microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe. Customers can cook, present and serve, all in the same dish.
So … because this pottery is special (to me) and because this lemon pistachio shortbread cookie bite is special (to the other Cotter), I’d like to giveaway both! 2 winners! 2 prizes!
It’s a Cotter Potter(y) Special. I hope you’re smiling because I am.
Here’s how to enter!
I hope you get to try these BRIGHT and cheery bites! And I hope you enter the giveaway, because it’s so worth the itsy bitsy effort to enter. But I may be bias.. always bias.
