Brilliant recepie. Can swap the raw apple for blueberries, or other fruit for different flavours. Great to have on standby in fridge when you're busy and need a boost, before or after gym. Kids love them too as after school snacks, or after sport. Can't believe how expensive similar snacks are in the shops - saved a fortune making these!
