Fruit leathers are a great go-to snack that are both healthy and delicious, and they’re actually paleo and gluten-free. Most fruit leathers you buy at the grocery store are just pure fruit (unless they also have sugar and other junk added to them), so they lack the added punch of protein that this gluten free recipe offers. It provides you with a whole new way to use those holiday cranberries and it boosts you up with antioxidants.
Along with being on the paleo diet, my daughter is an avid crossfit junkie, and she loves to take this easy-to-transport snack with her to her box. It provides just the right amount of protein, healthy fats and energy that she needs to get through that last set of burpees!
This is also a great paleo snack that you could throw into your kids’ lunch boxes to keep them fueled with healthy nutrients throughout the day, without them feeling like they have to eat “weird” paleo food.
I hope you enjoy this healthy paleo treat, wherever you take it!
