This is a fantastic recipe that is grain-free, lower in carbs and tastes amazing! This is guaranteed to impress your family and friends!
This is a combination of good fats in coconut oil, with healthy fiber from the coconut flour and cashew flour. That combination helps us to burn fat, improve our gut health and reduce inflammation throughout the body.
The Lily’s chocolate chips taste amazing and are sugar-free. They do have a sugar alcohol, erythritol, that some get bloating and gas from. Many others do great with it. As an alternative, you can also use organic cacao such as these cacao nibs. Cacao nibs taste great when combined with other ingredients, but on their own they have a slightly bitter taste. One suggestion is that you can combine some stevia and a touch of salt as you melt the nibs down to remove the bitterness.
