Enough said...now go make the most of apple season and try some of these delicious snacks as soon as possible...you will not be disappointed!
Apple Oatmeal Snack Balls (PRINT RECIPE)
Makes about 15 snack balls
1 cup whole rolled oats or gluten free rolled oats (also known as Old Fashioned oats)
1/2 cup (packed) coarsely grated peeled apple (I love pink lady and honey crisps, gala or fuji)
1/3 cup creamy unsweetened almond butter**
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
2 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup raisins or craisins (optional)
**unsweetened sunflower butter works great as a nut free substitute. You can also use peanut butter here but may need to add another tablespoon of flaxseed since peanut butter is a little runnier in consistency than almond butter.
Please post back and let us know what you think after you try the recipe! Happy eating!

These are easy and delicious. I use a cookie scoop to put them on the sheet and then flatten them a bit with a fork. How delicious!
