Sticky Buns – A healthier take!


We recently posted a picture of some Sticky Buns we made to our Facebook page by Ina Garten and they sure are yummy! But we thought we could take this recipe and maybe add a little healthier twist to it and sneak in some extra fruit! This has been mommy tested and cub approved!
