I legit don’t think I’ve ever eaten more balls in my entire life than in the past 7 days. If you look in my freezer you’ll find about 200 balls (not an exaggeration) in gallon-sized bags. Balls on balls on balls. Between all of ball week’s recipes, flopped recipes, and client recipes (yes, some were balls)…I think I could feed an entire army soley on BALLS. 

I have done a good job pawning some of these babies off to my sister. I say pawning, but she pretty much begs me to make her balls :P Ohhhhhh, the things we do for our sisters :)

This recipe screams all things fall. If I had to chose a dried fruit to eat for the rest of my life, I’d choose dried apples! Instead of pureeing the dried apples like I do with dates, I thought I’d chop them up into bite-size pieces to keep some good texture. 

The base of this recipe is almond butter + rolled oats + honey. Then, I added in dried apples and chai spices. YAS.
