Did you know it was National Strawberry Shortcake Day the on the 14th?  Which means I’m slightly late in getting this recipe up here for you to celebrate.  Better late than never though right?!  At least we’ll be ahead of the game for next year.  These Skinny Strawberry Shortcake Bites are the perfect way to celebrate too.  These are healthy, gluten free, vegan, and pink!  What’s not to love?

These little snacks are so fun, my youngest daughter loves them!  Again, they’re pink!  Which might explain her love for them.  And I can’t really blame her.  At least it’s all good ingredients so I didn’t mind her snacking on them all day long.  Whenever I make a batch of these skinny bites, or any of the others that I have recipes for (skinny lemon bites, and skinny cookie dough bites) they never last long in the house.

 The basics of the recipe stays the same: cashews, oats, agave, and now some freeze dried strawberries.  You’ll want to make sure you get the freeze dried strawberries, the ones that are almost like a chip.  These will grind up in the processor into a nice powder, which is what makes these bites that pretty pink color.  If we use regular dried strawberries, which are the chewy ones, they won’t grind up and you’ll end up with big chunks of dried strawberries coated in oats and cashews.  Trust me.
