Apple Cinnamon Energy Bites

I'm trying to think fall...and be excited for it.  I'm a summer girl so it's not really going to happen but treats can help.  Especially apple cinnamon ones.  I love that energy bites are super versatile and you can make them different each time.   When I made them this weekend, I added sunflower seeds and macadamia nuts rather than chia and walnuts.   I've also added pecans, almonds, dried fruit and whatever else I have.  Next time I might try the macadamia nuts and mini white chocolate chips.   


Anyways, for a quick and easy snack:
