Directions

1. In a food processor, grind the oats, quinoa, and pecans.
2. Cut the apple into smaller pieces and also grind them.
3. Combine all dry ingredients, and then add the apple, maple syrup, almond butter, and the milk.
4. With your hands form an even dough. If still too dry, add more plant-based milk, water or almond butter, and if not sweet enough, add more maple syrup. 5. Form small balls.
6. Break up the extra pecans into smaller pieces and use them to decorate the balls.
7. Place the balls in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
