Step #5:  Freeze or refrigerate for one hour until the bars are cooled.

Step #6:  Make chocolate sauce by mixing all the ingredients together over low heat and allow it to cool before pouring it on the bars.

Step #7:  Pour or drizzle the chocolate sauce on the bars.

Best to store this in the refrigerator for 48 hours or for longer-term use, put it in the freezer.

You can make these into protein bars by adding in the vanilla bone broth protein.  You  can also reduce the glycemic impact by adding in the protein and the lemon juice.  The lemon gives it a little bit of a strawberry lemonade flavor!

If you are trying to follow an autoimmune diet or low-oxalate nutrition plan than you will want to avoid the chocolate sauce.  You can also use other berries such as blackberries, raspberries, blueberries or a combination of berries depending upon what you enjoy the most.

Dr Jockers Comments

This is an anti-oxidant rich snack food that can be used as a breakfast bar or a snack bar.  This is perfect for active kids or athletes who are looking for a quick fuel that is satisfying and good for the gut and metabolism.

I personally enjoy using stevia as my major sweetener but you can also use monk fruit.  If you do honey or maple syrup that will make this a much higher carbohydrate food so it will impact your blood sugar in a negative manner.

Bone broth protein is rich in glycine and proline as well as glucosamine and chondroitin to help support the joints, gut, hair, skin and nails.  This is a protein powder that everyone can benefit from and especially athletes and older individuals.

These are quite satisfying and great to have around if you are raising kids and need healthy snacks for them.  They are packed full of anti-oxidants in the strawberries (or other berries), collagen protein and coconut fats!

    1. Maybe sinus, I’m having that problem lately, i went to the dr they said i have a severe sinusitis, i said whaaat, i never suffer of that problem, so go and check ,

    2. Hi Gabi, try this simple exercise: place one hand on your chest and one hand on your belly. Now take a deep breath. Where do you first feel the expansion: in your chest or in your belly? Basic breathing occurs either costally (chest) or diaphragmatically (belly).

      When you breathe deeply into the belly, it should extend, the breath should rise with the chest expanding, as the rib cage is lifted, making room for the lungs to fill with oxygen. Some neck muscles aid that lifting process. Breathing directly into the chest, on the other hand, causes secondary breathing muscles become primary breathing muscles. If you are doing that, you can’t get the benefit of a truly deep breath.

      Also, the muscles in between your ribs should be flexible enough to expand the chest. You could have some tightness there as well. Breathing exercises and stretching should help.
