This recipe is a creative way to use a couple of apples, and it tastes like a naturally sweet dessert. It’s a good one to make with children, just be mindful of the food processor blade!
Apple Peanut Butter Balls
- One large apple or two smaller ones
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ¼ cup raisins or other dried fruit
- ¼ cup raw almonds or other nuts
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Place coconut in a bowl and set aside. Place all ingredients except for coconut in your food processor. Blend until the mixture sticks together and looks like it’s starting to roll itself into a ball.
Scoop out Tablespoon-sized chunks of the mixture and roll into a ball with clean hands. Next roll the ball in coconut. Repeat until the mixture is gone, and then refrigerate apple balls until firm (about an hour). Enjoy!
