For the tenth ball of Christmas I’d like to offer you….apple pie balls! Nothing better than apples and cinnamon! These ones are made with the standard mix that I’ve used with the other balls – 1 cup oats/nuts, 1 cup dried fruit and some flavour! Enjoy this nice light and nutritious take on a typically heavy and gluten laden dessert!
1/2 cup oats (wheat free if necessary) or more nuts
1/2 cup toasted pecan or more oats
3/4 cup dried apples, rehydrated slightly in water for 15 minutes, drained
1/4 cup raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla
Dash of salt
1. Rehydrate apples in water for about 15 minutes.
2. Process oats and nuts in food processor until a fine powder or as chunky as you like it.
3. Add remaining ingredients and blend until it forms a cohesive dough. Using damp hands, roll into about a dozen or more balls.
Refrigerate up to 2 weeks or freeze.
