The blueberry lemon combination has always been one of my faves.

A Few Cook’s Notes for Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Bites Recipe:
I love the blueberry lemon combination, but you could also swap out the lemon juice and zest for orange juice and zest and swap the blueberries for cranberries. Both versions are equally delicious.
- 1 1/2 cups whole almonds, unsalted
- 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 tsp. freshly grated lemon zest
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1/2 cup dried blueberries
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or mini paper liners. Set aside.
Add almonds to the bowl of your food processor and pulse a few times until finely ground, then pour into a medium bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk together coconut oil, maple syrup, lemon juice and zest, vanilla extract and sea salt. Pour mixture over finely ground almonds and mix well. Fold in the blueberries.
Roll into 12 or so equal balls and place on prepared sheet. Refrigerate until firm, about 2-3 hours. Keep leftover bites refrigerated in an airtight container.
