Satisfy your lemon craving with an easy, high-protein treat! These Lemon Poppy Protein Bites are sure to please!

I made these with Quest Nutrition Multi-Purpose Mix (unflavored) protein powder. The whey/casein blend is great for baking, and for these no-bake protein treats!

I’m tagging these both as “Candy and Fudge” and “Breads and Muffins” because I think they are a cross between the two. These Lemon Poppy Protein Bites are not as sweet as most of my protein candy recipes, but they are not a baked lemon poppy protein muffin, either. (Sounds like a great muffin idea, though, so I’ll get on that!)

You can also make these into protein bars, if you like. The recipe would make 2 standard sized protein bars, or 3 smaller ones.

Get yourself some Quest Nutrition protein powder, and give these a try! Enjoy!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Mix all of the ingredients. Start with 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and add by the teaspoon as necessary to get it to mix as a dough. Use your hands to get it all fully combined.
  2. Break the dough into 6 pieces, and roll into balls.
  3. Enjoy! Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Wrap in parchment and a ziplock bag to carry with you.
Notes
A note about substitutions: If you want to try these with all whey, I would drop the coconut oil to 1 tablespoon. You still might need extra coconut flour to get a dough consistency (add by the teaspoon). With all casein, I would start with 1 tablespoon coconut flour, and add by the teaspoon if you need more. Unflavored vegan powders would probably have too much plant flavor for this recipe.
