    Fruit rolls

    Do you sometimes get upset when you go to buy biscuits that say NO ADDED SUGAR, but then you find out that they added artificial sugar?
    Don’t worry, I do it as well. Even with years of conditioning to carefully avoid the tricks of the supermarket and reading all the labels.
    Having said this, did you know that when we eat sugar we release chemicals in our brain that make us feel good?

    Bottom line, this is a great recipe, it has lots of sugar when you consider all the dried fruit. That said you at least know how much sugar you are eating. Because none has been added. These biscuits are naturally sweet, THEREFORE guilt free.
