This is one of those great recipes that you can mix with pretty much any combination of nuts and dried fruit to make a healthier 'fruit snack' of sorts. I molded these into mini ice cube trays for bite sized pieces and we all loved them.
If you are new to essential oils, or simply don't want to use them, these would still be great without them. I happen to love the added boost of citrus flavor.
