Dr Jockers Comments
Coconut butter is rich in lauric acid which is a natural anti-microbial that helps the body reduce yeast and bad bacteria. These fats also help improve our ability to burn fat for energy and improve brain function.
Coconut flour is a fantastic natural prebiotic that feeds the healthy microbial species in your gut and improves bowel motility. The chocolate chips provide anti-oxidants and if you want to add some high quality protein powder than you have a complete meal replacement!
These are fantastic as an after school snack for the kids, a dessert for your family or a holiday gathering. Everyone will want your recipe. Enjoy!
