coconut cacao bites
This dessert has no processed sugar, and is gluten-free and raw vegan. The dates will satisfy any sweet tooth while cacao will satisfy the chocolate-lover. Coconut oil is composed of medium chain triglycerides, which are burned as energy rather than stored in the body as fat. All you need is a food processer to make and enjoy! — Dr. Scott Schreiber DC, DACRB, DCBCN, MS, LDN, Cert.
