These lemon-almond snack bites are easy to throw together ahead of time and make a great alternative to prepackaged protein bars. It’s easy to adjust to your liking as well— fold in cranberries, coarsely chopped nuts, or mini chocolate chips in place of the dried cherries; use a different nut butter or swap in coconut oil; try maple syrup instead of honey. Just make sure to refrigerate the bites and you have a perfect, cool snack for eating on the go.
