If you’re like me, you know it’s not always easy to fit in the recommended 2 cups of fruit per day. That’s why I love this week’s pick, Sun-Maid Dried Apricot Halves, which packs a full serving of fruit into just ¼ cup! Here's how to make some great tasting -- and healthy -- snack bars with the Sun-Maid Apricots.
Unlike some other dried fruits, these apricots give you the fiber and potassium you want, without any added sugar. Sun-Maid Dried Apricot Halves are ripened by the sun to the peak of flavor, sun dried, and then packaged to lock in their natural sweetness. It is that natural sweet goodness that makes these apricots great for snacking on their own, or the perfect addition to salads, homemade snack bars, or oatmeal. You can even eat them to fuel up for a pre-workout snack. Find your favorite way to get in your daily fruit with these recipe creations below!
