I don’t know about you guys, but the weather here in Southern California is starting to get a little ridiculous!  It’s been so warm.  This last weekend we spent at the park with the kids playing soccer, taking them to the pool for swimming, and picnicking outside.  I think we completely skipped over winter, and perhaps already have moved past Spring and right on into Summer.  Which is a major bummer!!!  Spring is my favorite season!

So instead of enjoying the season of Spring outside, I’ve decided to bring the taste of Spring into my kitchen.

These healthy little bites of citrus-y springtime are so quick and easy to make.  And they taste divine!

How I wish I could survive on cupcakes and milkshakes and whatever else I can develop in my little kitchen here.  But sadly I can’t.  So to make myself feel better I made these little tasty treats.

These little lemon bites, which really do taste like a lemon cookie dough, are actually healthy.  They are also gluten free and vegan.

The recipe for these makes about 2 servings.  And I wish I could tell you how they store and how long they will last for, but it seems every time that I make them, they quickly disappear!

There is nothing better than yummy treats that I can snack on during the day that are actually good for me to eat!
