Apple Butter Oatmeal Bites

I did not intend to make the apple butter version of these oatmeal bite.

I wanted to make the peanut butter oatmeal version I always make. There was just one problem, I was almost out of peanut butter. So I had to figure out a substitute. I had some apple butter left over from the Dreamy Apple Butter Pumpkin pie recipe (so good), so I tried it out as a substitute. I did also add a tablespoon of peanut butter. I also added more oatmeal because I thought the batter was still too loose to form into balls. the recipe worked out to be:

about 1/2 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup apple butter
1 Tsp peanut butter.

I did not add any honey because I thought the apple butter would be sweet enough. It tasted alright, I was not use to the texture. Overall it worked out in a pinch. Next time I make the peanut butter version I might substitute the apple butter for the honey. I like the flavor of apple butter...and I need to used up the apple butter.
