Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup unsalted raw pecans walnuts, almonds or any nut or seed
  • 4 medium sweet apples (like Fuji or your favorite), cored and cut into large slices or chunks.
  • ¼ cup pitted dates
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax
  • 2 tablespoons oat flour
  • ½ cup raisins optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 and line mini muffin tins with mini muffin liners.
  • In a food processor, chop the nuts of choice (or a mixture) into medium chunks. Put them into a large bowl.
  • Place ½ of the apples into the food processor and pulse to chop them into small ½ inch pieces then add them to the nuts in the large bowl.
  • Add the dates to the food processor and chop them into chunks.
  • Add the remaining large apples chunks, along with the salt, cinnamon and flax to the food processor and process until just blended and the apples & dates are processed, like a chunky apple sauce.
  • Add these ingredients to the other apples with the nuts in the large bowl along with the raisins and stir well.
  • Mound the mixture by heaping tablespoon (using a melon-baller is great) into the mini muffin liners, mounding over the top.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until browned and allow them to cool in the tins, to retain shape.
  • Store cooled Mini Apple Bites in a closed container.
