Small Desserts

The holiday season is here and mini desserts are perfect for parties. I am always so busy during the holiday season and anything I can make ahead and pull out when needed is a win in my book.

These little bites of goodness are great for placing out for guests to snack on while decorating cookies or singing carols. The flavorful granola with blueberries and hints of lemon with the tart lemon cream is the perfect bite of crunchy and creamy.

No Bake Lemon Pies are the perfect addition to any party, easy to make and delicious! Click To Tweet

Frontier Bites

Mini no bake lemon pies, Gluten Free/ Dairy Free OptionThe trick to making this crust is using Frontier Bites. Frontier Bites are granola clusters that have 8 healthy, simple ingredients. They come in 3 different flavors including Almond Blueberry Lemon, Cherry Almond Cinnamon, and Macadamia Pineapple Coconut. In South Florida they can be found at Publix, but nationwide they can be found in most grocery stores, or you can also order online! (Scroll to the bottom for a giveaway! I have 6 bags going to one lucky reader!)

Frontier Bites are also the perfect stocking stuffer. I love to keep a bag in my purse for the perfect pick me up.

No Bake Lemon Pies

These little no bake lemon pies are a snap to make. Plus, they can be made ahead and frozen until needed. The ingredients are simple and naturally gluten free so you do not need any special “gluten free” ingredients.

If you can not find Frontier Bites or are making this at the last minute, you can substitute another gluten free granola, and they will still be good. However, the Frontier Bite crust does have the goodness of lemon and blueberry right in the crust, so look for them!

Dairy Free Option

If you need to be dairy free, don’t fret. You can sub dairy free cream cheese and coconut whip and they will be delicious!
