No-bake Apple Cinnamon Energy Balls are a delicious, allergen-friendly snack for the entire family. Because they use sunflower seed butter instead of nut butters, they are a school-approved lunchbox treat!

Apples and cinnamon are one of my favorite fall flavor combos in any type of recipe whether it be oatmeal like my Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats or snacks such as my Cinnamon Honeycrisp Apple Chips. That’s why I loved the idea of using this flavor combination to make a simple and delicious no-bake cookie that is sweet and most importantly, school-approved.
