My new love interests are these yummy no bake apple cinnamon raisin oatmeal bites!  Holy cow, these things are YUMMY!  They remind me of an oatmeal cookie, but SUPER good for you!  All of the ingredients have various health benefits, but let’s focus on the fresh apple in these guys!

Look at all those health benefits, and that’s just one of the great ingredients in these yummies!  It’s a really good thing that these are good for you, because believe me, you will not be able to eat just one…or two…or a whole batch. 🙂
