 Benefits

Carrots are a root vegetable full of beta carotene & fiber. They are a great source of antioxidants, vitamin A, C & K & vitamin B & C, folate, potassium, iron, copper & manganese.

Apples are an extremely rich in important antioxidant flavonoids & dietary fiber.

Sultanas are a good source of energy & B vitamins, electrolytes & minerals. When seedless grapes are dehydrated to produce sultanas, the nutrients become more concentrated & absorb the flavour of the apple & carrots in this recipe.

 

Natural nut butters are a fantastic alternative to peanut butter & don’t contain the unhealthy saturated fats. This makes them a great protein source when consumed in moderation.
