A Treat Made with Healthy Fats and High-Fiber:
This recipe is loaded with flavor and the delicious taste of dried prunes, a cross between dates and raisins, this sweet but healthy treat may prevent you from eating too much. The fiber makes you feel fuller, so you’re less hungry, and that can make you eat less. But the benefits are long lasting, too.
High-fiber for Cancer Prevention and Heart Health:
A benefit of a high-fiber diet is that it may help prevent colorectal cancer, because it normalizes bowel movements and prevents constipation. Which many common prescription medications can cause. But, it also has heart-healthly benefits, such as reducing blood pressure and inflammation, too.
I continue to make these over and over again because they are surprisingly delicious!
