Healthy Spring Rolls

I had cravings for spring rolls but not the fat that comes with it so I was determine to make my own and healthy spring rolls. I baked them instead of deep frying them. I truly believe the only thing that should be deep fried is french fries and I don’t even like them as much.  They were very easy to make and we used a sweet chili sauce to dip them in. The leftovers I froze for another day. I don’t have a picture of them yet because Isabella took our camera cable and now we can’t find it and therefore can’t download any pictures. Unfortunately when we ask her what she did with it she says “mmmmm, let’s look for it later”.
