Did you know that prunes are just dried plums? Yes – and yum! Plus, they keep all of the sweetness and nutrition of a fresh plum. However, since they're dried they last a lot longer, and you can enjoy them in so many different ways! With these Amaz!n™ Prunes, you can also keep them on hand for delicious snacks. They're so easy to take on-the-go for a nutritious, healthy snack. For information on the health benefits of eating prunes - Click Here!

We have to also mention that Sunsweet® is a grower-owned cooperative, which means that they are supporting their farmers in a way that is truly unique. And that's something we can get all get behind.

Now, let's get to the cookies that we just made for the holidays – the 3-Ingredient Prune Cookies, and a thank you to Dawn Jackson Blatner, Registered Dietitian, who created this! Now, let's just go back a sec. Did you catch that? There are only 3 ingredients! We don't think we've ever shared an easier recipe!

And here's a tip – we made the cookies into an adorable little gifts using decorated glass mason jars that would be perfect for a host, friend, coworker, or just to brighten someone's day.

Feel free to get creative here, too! Sunsweet® offers a variety of Amaz!n™ Prunes, so for this recipe we chose their Orange Essence flavor, so you could have just as easily made them with two of their other delicious flavors – Cherry and Lemon. See how we made it:
