It’s ALREADY MARCH!!! 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 no bake bites that is.
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 … all over the floor. Haha. He’s also obsessed with lemon bars, lemon cookies. All lemon desserts. Those these no bake lemon bars. Do you see where I’m going with this?
Because FOOD is my love language, I wanted to create a something similar to a lemon bar or shortbread cookie for him. Yep. this next cotter creation will be in the form of lemon and buttery deliciousness.
That being said, 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 bites recipe! When you combine the coconut flour with the ground pistachios and a bit of honey, you get one fantastic sweet crumble. Now, mix in some creamy almond butter and well… there’s your buttery goodness. You get my point, right? Copycat shortbread cookie bites made healthy, and without even baking. Winner!
Ingredients to make no bake lemon cookie bites!

That’s about it ya’ll! Each bite is around 70 calories or so. That means 3 would be equivalent to a dessert or energy bar. Make sense? Also, please note that the batter texture will vary depending on the brand of coconut flour and almond butter you use. Adjust with more or less honey if needed.
Now let’s get things rollin. 😉
