Remove from the baking sheet and let cool on a wire rack or plate.
Serve with chilled fruit salsa!
Fruit. You can use almost any fruit in this recipe. I have included the fruits that I have tested and enjoyed the most. Some other options include (but are not limited to): nectarines, pears, blueberries, bananas, pineapple, grapes (diced), mandarin oranges or cuties, etc. Just be sure to use the same total amount of fruit as the original recipe calls for.
Honey. for a vegan version use maple syrup. You can also substitute the honey for granulated sugar if you do not keep it on hand.
Granulated sugar. To keep this recipe refined-sugar free, substitute coconut, date or maple sugar for the organic cane sugar. You can also substitute the granulate sugar with an extra tablespoon of honey.
Fruit preserves. I used seedless raspberry preserves in this recipe, but use your favorite. I recommend seedless varieties to avoid an unwelcome texture in the final product.
Tortillas. I used regular flour tortillas in this fruit salsa recipe, but here are a few options for different dietary needs:
Paleo. Siete foods makes paleo and grain-free tortillas that are very good!
Gluten-free. Thankfully there are many gluten-free tortilla varieties in most major grocery stores.
Coconut oil. Melted butter or ghee can be used in place of coconut oil.
Sugar (in the cinnamon sugar). For a paleo option use date sugar, maple sugar or coconut sugar in place of the organic cane sugar!
