Why are these Strawberry Shortcake Bites a healthy snack idea?
Hey NY Melrose Family readers! Serene here from House of Yumm. Remember me from the Rainbow Sherbet Cupcakes and the Eclair Cookie Cups.
How are you all doing? I have some exciting news to share! We had baby number 4 last month! Which means I'm still attempting to lose the remaining baby weight.
Seeing as how I have a massive sweet tooth that can be a bit challenging. Luckily these Skinny Strawberry Shortcake Bites are healthy and they satisfy that sweet tooth. Not to mention they taste just like real strawberry shortcake!
These bites are not only scrumptious, they are gluten free and vegan. These are made with all natural ingredients, no preservatives. See!
What are these Strawberry Shortcake Bites made of?
Eating healthy can be fun! The base of these bites are cashews and gluten free oats. Mix that with some freeze dried strawberries and not only do they turn a fun pink color! But it adds that strawberry flavor naturally.
Pure vanilla extract gives that sweetness and vanilla flavor. I used agave which is a natural sweetener, and it's vegan friendly. If you don't have any agave on hand you can substitute with honey. It will alter the taste slightly though. The agave is also what makes the mixture sticky enough to form into the ball shape.
I got to say, I've been having fun coming up with healthier sweet treats that I can enjoy without any guilt!
Strawberry Shortcake Bites Recipe
- ¾ cup freeze dried strawberries
- 1 cup raw unsalted cashews
- ½ cup gluten free quick oats
- 4 tbsp raw blue agave
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- Add the cashews, freeze dried strawberries, and quick oats into a food processor or blender. Process for about 2 minutes, or until you are left with a fine powder. Don't over process or blend, this could cause you to end up with cashew butter.
- Add in the vanilla extract and agave, stir until fully combined. Will be slightly sticky.
- Scoop out about a tablespoon of mixture and press together with your hands.
- Roll into a ball shape. Mixture will be sticky. Make sure you press it together firmly in your palms to get the mixture to form into a shape.
- Recipe will make approximately 18 bites. Enjoy! Can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-4 days. Can also be kept in the refrigerator if you enjoy them cold!

Do you have to use freeze-dried strwberries? Could I use fresh strawberries instead?
Serene @ House of Yumm
Krista, if you use fresh strawberries instead of the freeze dried then the texture would be off. The freeze dried strawberries turn into a powder along with the cashews, which we can then mix with the agave. If we use fresh strawberries, it would be tasty, but end up being almost a strawberry jam mixed with ground up cashews. Hope that helps! 🙂
These look delicious and not packed with a ton of calories like a lot of bites. Yum!
