So here we are. I give you a delightful breakfast treat that is healthy, using simple pantry ingredients. No processed overloads.

Versatility, too - switch up the nut/seed butter or sweetener of choice. Happy Healthy eating all!
Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Bites
Total Time: 5 minutes Prep + 30+ minutes in the refrigerator
2 cups oats
1 tbsp chia seeds (and/or flax seeds, sunflower seeds, etc.)
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup nut/seed butter of choice (I used natural peanut butter in this batch)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup grated apple (I used a Granny Smith and a Honey Crisp)
What to do:
1) In a small bowl, combine oats, seeds, cinnamon, and salt.
2) In another medium-ish bowl, combine nut/seed butter, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth and consistent.
3) Using a combination of a super awesome spatula and your hands, combine the oat mixture with the nut/seed butter mixture until evenly combined. Then add in the grated apple. Mix again, with hands most likely, until evenly combined.
4) Form into balls and put in an airtight container in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. They are a delicious treat for breakfast on the go, snacks, dessert, etc! And they smell yummy, too! They should last about 3-4 days in the fridge.
