Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a great snack for kids to bring to school or as an after school snack. I have so many parents asking me what their kids should eat at school. The typical sandwich and chips are obviously not going to benefit their health. This recipe will!
Coconut oil is such an amazing superfood that enhances our metabolism, improves brain function and hormones. Getting lots of coconut oil into our diet and our children’s diets should be a high nutritional priority.
You and the family will love this one!
