    • Store bought apple juice, which typically has added sugar, is not. Since it’s natural apple juice and only being included as a minor ingredient, I’m sure it is fine.

    • By adding a cup of apple juice, whether “natural” or other, I don’t see how this recipe is much healthier than most big box brands, That is still a cup of liquid sugar more or less.
