When you buy apples at The Patch, we give 10 cents for every pound purchased to help local schools’ garden programs. grow!


  • 1 apple, peeled and diced

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries or cherries


Add everything except dried cranberries/cherries to a food processor and process until well-combined, stopping as needed to use a spatula to clean the sides and get everything near the blade.

Once well-combined, put in a bowl and stir in dried cranberries/cherries. Divide into 12 equal parts and roll into balls. Refrigerate for at least one hour. These taste best chilled and right out of the fridge!

Will keep in fridge for several days.
