Using natural sugars from maple and coconut, coupled with seasonal fruits (granny smith apples and navel oranges) has allowed us to create a yummy treat without the guilt factor.
Maple syrup contains nutrients to include calcium, iron, zinc, potassium and manganese. When shopping for maple syrup, aim to buy real maple syrup, and avoid the maple “flavoured” syrup. The other sweetener in this recipe is coconut sugar. It contains vitamin C, potassium, phosophorus, magnanese, calcium, zinc and iron and has a low glycemic index of 35, compared to refined sugar which is up between 65 – 70. Both Maple syrup and Coconut Sugar are extracted from the sap of trees and not altered chemically in any way, BONUS!! However they are still sugars, and should be consumed in moderation.
This recipe is super easy .. and we almost forgot to mention, gluten free too!
