Caramel Apple Banana Bites

This healthy fall-inspired treat is a spin on the traditional candied apple. Serve as an after-dinner dessert or as a treat at a fall birthday or Halloween party. Roll skewers in additional toppings like ¼ cup crushed nuts, shredded unsweetened coconut or chopped dried fruit, before caramel sets.

Nutrition Tip: Because this fruit is rich in fiber, apples are excellent for your GI health by stimulating digestion and preventing constipation.
