Notes

Use your favorite apples or a variety
Works great with ground flaxseeds or ground chia seeds or a combination
If you don't have whole wheat pastry flour, option to do 1/2 whole wheat flour + 1/2 all purpose flour.  Whole wheat pastry flour is softer and not as "harsh" tasting as regular whole wheat flour.  Also can experiment with using other flours, such as almond flour or coconut flour.
