Yes, I said healthy. Yes, they have fruit and vegetable puree. Yes, they are made with wheat flour. No, they aren’t gross.

Also, did I tell you there was a mashed sweet potato in there? Well, there is and let me tell you, the flavors of sweet potato, brown sugar and cinnamon really pull through nicely.
