Healthy Snacks

A few weeks ago I blogged about making some delicious and healthy dried fruit and nut bites courtesy of a recipe from Whole Living. I’ve since been experimenting with my own mix and came up with a yummy alternative. I combined raw cashews, dates, cherries, prunes and lemon zest. My chief tasters (O and Rory) were delighted. Easy to store, they’re ready for whenever you need a little pick me up during the day.
