Ingredients

  • 4 Apples , peeled, cored and grated.
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 Orange , zested and juiced
  • 1/2 cup of almonds (or any other nut that you prefer), chopped
  • 3 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 1 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions 

  • In a 2 quart saucepan combine water and sugar and bring to a boil.
  • Cook for a minute longer and add in the grated apples.
  • Mix in the orange zest, orange juice and the chopped nuts.
  • Continue to cook over medium heat until the syrup has been absorbed by the apple mixture. This might take around 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let the mixture cool down a bit.
  • Mix in the graham crackers before putting it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, mix together the coconut and cinnamon, and put in a shallow dish.
  • Pinch off a bit of the apple mixture and shape into balls by rolling between the palms of your hands. This will be a sticky situation, so if you prefer, you can use powder-free vinyl or latex gloves.
  • Put the apple bites into the coconut mixture and roll around until coated.
  • Place all the apple bites into a plastic container, cover, and allow to set in the refrigerator for 2 hours, or over night.
