I love fall! Don’t you?
I could go on and on about its delicious flavor and warm spice aroma. But I do that all the time. AND this time is a little different…
I love this recipe because I’ve found two ways to make it.
Option 1: Bake into cookie-like balls if you want a soft crunch. (Yes, I realize that’s an oxymoron, but for this recipe it applies.)
Option 2: Microwave or bake for a few minutes in the oven, then spread over a crisp apple slice–sort of like a warm spread.
You choose your apple-icious adventure. I promise to you that both are excellent.
Makes about 3 balls or one large serving of spread.
pinch of cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and ground cloves
1 t stevia
1 T peanut butter (or sunflower or other nut butter)
1 T applesauce
dash of vanilla
2 T chopped apple
-To bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking dish. Set aside.
-Mix all dry; then mix in wet. Form into balls and transfer to prepared dish.
-For cookies, bake about 10-12 minutes. For a spicy spread, bake for only 6-7 minutes.
