Cran-Apple Walnut Chutney

Skip the canned cranberry sauce this year and opt instead for this flavorful and healthy spin on a holiday staple.

This recipe is loaded with fiber from leaving the skin on the cranberries, adding apples and walnuts. Walnuts, along with flaxseed, are the only plant-based sources of Omega-3s (an added bonus). This recipe boasts 10 grams less sugar per serving than traditional cranberry sauce.
