Apples! Apples everywhere.

Yep – today was the day of the annually apple picking. A day I always look really much forward to.

Not far from where we live is a big apple orchard with around 15 different types of apples and endless rows of apple trees all packed with red ripe apples. And these apples are the best! I love freshly picked autumn apples SO much.

I’ve always been picking apples with my mom (and last year with my grand mom as well), and this year we went with one of my very god friends Nicole and her mother. So cozy!

I can’t wait to make something with these beauties. I’m thinking apple crumble, apple bread, apple toddy, juices and baked apples. Oh it’s gonna be so good.

Sorry for the rush through this post. I’m sitting in my bed after quite a long day and I’m exhausted. I just really wanted to share this little recipe on healthy chocolate energy balls, which are amazing.

In Denmark we have an amazingly delicious treat which we call “oatmeal balls”. Sounds healthy right! It is not. They basically consists of oatmeal, cocoa, sugar and butter (a lot of butter). But they are SO good. So I’ve been wanting to make a healthy version for a long time.

And here it is: Enjoy!
