Dr Jockers Notes
These look and taste amazing and they are low in carbs and loaded with good fats and anti-oxidants. Coconut fats help you burn fat, strengthen your thyroid and gut lining and help to reduce inflammation in the body.
Blueberries are rich in anthocyanin anti-oxidants that protect the body from oxidative stress. The lemon essential oil helps give a great flavor and a synergistic combination of vitamin C and citrus bioflavonoids that help improve blood flow and oxygenation throughout the body.
You can use these bars as a quick breakfast, especially when you add in a high quality protein powder. They are also really nice to throw into a smoothie, as they add a creamy and smooth flavor. They are also a great dessert or side snack that are full of healthy ingredients and taste amazing. Enjoy!
