Just to be clear, I'm aware that the recipes on my blog can be a source of temptation for some. My followers have let me know that food pictures that pop up on their Facebook or Instagram feeds after ten o'clock are "torturous." 🤣 I get it. I actually make an effort to post recipes early in the day so as not to tempt anyone trying to avoid late night eating temptations.
I also try and post a good variety of recipes. Believe it or not, what may seem like random recipe posts are actually somewhat calculated. A chicken recipe, followed by a butterscotch cookie recipe and then a potato salad - yup, that's exactly the way I intended it. 🤣 A little something for everyone - all in the same week.
This Apple Pie Fruit Bar recipe is for anyone looking for a sweet treat without refined sugar or processed ingredients. The ingredients are simple and the recipe straightforward but the flavor --- intense! I don't know about you, but I feel like I overindulged on sugary snacks over the holidays and even though I'm still craving all the sweet thinks - I'm trying to cut back on my sugar intake. These Apple Pie Fruit Bars help to satisfy my sweet tooth while limiting my processed sugar.
