I absolutely adore no-bake recipes. Especially in the summertime. I mean who really wants to turn their oven on 350 degrees and warm up the whole house when it's 80 degrees outside? Not me, that's for sure.
No-bake bites are a staple for breakfast because they're packed with nutrients (i.e. fruit and oats) and you can grab a couple and be on your way. They also give you the boost you need in the morning or work well for a simple snack during the day. These bites taste just like apple pie and take 5 minutes to make. Enjoy!
- 1 apple, chopped (keep skin on)
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- Pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp. agave nectar
- 1 1/2 tbsp. milk (plus more, if necessary)
In a microwave safe bowl heat the apples in 30 second increments until it has softened and caramelised and allow to cool. This should take about 2 minutes total.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, rolled oats, salt, cinnamon, and sugar. Stir until combined. Add the agave and stir to combine.
Add in the cooked apple and mix until fully incorporated.
Slowly add the milk until a thick, firm dough is formed. Add more milk if necessary.
Form into bite sized balls and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to firm up.
Store balls in the refrigerator.
