Please meet our newest contributor, Mia Syn! She is helping us create amazing recipes that are healthy and good for dieting. Take a look at her most recent spring-inspired treat, DELICIOUS lemon bites!
Nothing says spring like zesty, tart, and sweet lemon bites!
Yes… a bite-sized version of lemon bars! Does it get any better than bite-sized desserts? Cute, perfectly portioned and you can have two – three with no guilt.
I am so excited about these because I used a new-to-me sweetener called sugar 2.0.
It’s a blend of 50% fiber and 50% sugar. You can use it as a one to one swap in lieu of sugar in your recipes – baked good and even coffee. You still get the sweetness but for a third of calories, plus prebiotic fiber which supports gut health (win-win). One of their blends even has probiotics added which are beneficial bacteria that support digestion and immunity.
I’ve recommended this to many of my clients who find it especially hard to part with the sweet stuff. My clients who have had the most success have started with small changes and simple swaps whether it be one extra serving of veggies at dinner or replacing your sweetener in coffee.
