Fruit and Nut Treats

Do you ever wish that you can have a healthy snack option when you have a  craving for something sweet.  

Well, these fruit and nut treats are perfect for those times.  Why not have a treat where you know what the ingredients are versus one with complex or hard to understand ingredients.  

These Fruit & Nut Treats don’t last very long in my house.  They are great to satisfy a sweet craving or can be served as an after dinner dessert or snack.  

These treats come together in minutes and most of all they are not complicated to make.   You can get really creative with them.  Try adding or substituting other dried fruits, nuts or even a protein powder.  Get creative with them, you won’t be disappointed.
