Double Chocolate Plum Amazin Cookies

It's a raisin? It's a cranberry? No, it's a plum! Yes, the makers at Sunsweet have brought us yet another healthy, convenient snack with Plum Amazins.These tiny pieces of dried plum are the next best thing to eating candy without all of the added sugar and a lot more fiber.

My household taste testers had a go with this new product for breakfast this morning and according to my three-year-old son, "they are yummy." "Why," my six-year-old less adventurous eater asked. "Because I like eating them everyday," answered my three-year-old. It wasn't enough to convince my six-year-old to try them, but it certainly started my day off with a smile. When I served my son his cream cheese toast, I looked over and saw him putting the Plum Amazins on it. "Mmm good, mom."
