These beauties are perfect as a surprise treat in the kids' lunchboxes or as an after-school snack, and since they're topped with a simple lemon glaze, they're a great light bite for this time of year. Plus, these 5-star sweets come in at around 113 calories each, so you don't have to feel guilty about having one or two after the kids go to bed.
