Cinnamon Apple Energy Balls
















Fall is officially here, and what better way to kick off the baking season than with a delicious treat made with the perfect autumn fruit, apples! I absolutely love apples, especially during this time of year. Sweet, crisp, and perfect in almost any treat, they encompass everything we love about fall time.

With our minds on crisp leaves, orange, red, and brown colors, and cool evenings, we decided today was the perfect day to create one of our favorite autumn treats, Cinnamon Apple Energy Balls. Think about it, what tastes get you more excited for sweaters, scarfs, and romps in the Pumpkin Patch than apples and cinnamon? Best of all, these balls require no baking whatsoever. That means you can have more time to enjoy all your autumn activities, while still having a delicious snack! Oh the joy! Oh the excitement! Wrap yourself up in your favorite jacket, it's time for Cinnamon Apple Energy Balls!
