Dr Jockers Comments:

I grew up eating bowl after bowl of cereal.  Today, I don’t eat grains because of the inflammatory effect they have on our gut lining.  This recipe is completely grain-free, low in sugar and loaded with antioxidants, healthy fats and clean proteins.

Cassava is an excellent prebiotic fiber that helps to feed our natural microflora.  Raw cacao is rich in antioxidants and helps to boost key neurotransmitters in the brain such as dopamine which helps us have more energy and drive and serotonin which balances our mood.

This is an excellent way to start the day or a good daytime snack.  I wouldn’t recommend consuming this at night as chocolate can have a stimulating effect and keep you from sleeping well.   Enjoy!

    1. Hey Karen, you can experiment with some others like coconut, almond, or green banana flour. I can’t guarantee they will turn out the same though, try it out!
