  • 1.5 cups rolled oats lightly toasted
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 1/4 cups dried apple finely chopped (recipe here)
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • teaspoon ground cloves
  • teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 10 small pieces candied ginger finely diced
  • 12 whole raw almonds to top (optional)


  1. Place oats on a rimmed baking sheet and toast at 350 F for 10 min until just lightly browned. (If you're short on time, you can skip toasting the oats. I like them to have a little crunchy texture.)
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients except whole almonds. Mix throughly.
  3. Scoop out about a tablespoon and then roll between your palms to create the balls. It's helpful to wet the palms of your hand a little bit before rolling to prevent sticking. I wet them a few times during the process.
  4. Place one whole almond on its side on top of each ball. It is helpful to add a little dot of honey on top of the ball to hold the almond in place.
  5. Store in an air tight container or gallon-size bag in the refrigerator or freezer.
