Apples are aplenty right now so we’re taking advantage of this by creating scrumptious desserts. Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavonoids, and dietary fiber. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease. To get the most nutritional value out of apples, it’s best to eat them raw.
