These monster balls are full of good stuff. They’ll be popular with the whole family. If desired, substitute apple juice for the water and reduce the stevia.

• 1 cup water
• 1/4 cup butter or margarine
• 1 large apple, finely diced
• 3/4 cup raisins or currants
• 1 cup any nut butter

• 2 teaspoons green powdered stevia leaf
• 1/4 to 1/2 pound pecan halves

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. In a bowl, combine the rolled oats, eggs, water, and butter. Stir in the nut butter and remaining ingredients except the pecans. Form into 1-inch balls and place on greased cookie sheets. Press a pecan half on top of each ball. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
