“I like to snack. I always keep apples, bananas or dried fruit at my desk. I buy the best produce available because it is a treat. That keeps me from eating other, not as healthy, foods.” Nanci D.

Because this recipe contains the apple and orange peel, it’s a great source of fiber and many other nutrients. Combining that benefit with the Omega-3 of the flaxseed makes this is an especially good choice for a sweet treat.
