Why wholesome you ask?
- 3 whole apples for fibre, vitamin C and some sweetness
- 1 whole carrot for vitamin A and a splash of colour
- A whole cup of walnuts for good fats including nearly 1 gram of omega 3 fatty acids per serve!
- Wholemeal flour for fibre and B vitamins
- Some eggs, milk and oil to bind it all together and a little sugar for some sweetness
All in all, it’s a whole lot of wholesomeness!
