Coconut Caramel Bounty Squares
If you're as obsessed with coconut and almond butter as we are...this slice is probably your spirit animal.
Coconut, one of nature’s most abundant treats, is full of powerful fatty acids that makes it packed with health benefits and oh-so-delicious! Coconut is high in electrolytes, great for rehydration, helps with weight loss, reduced cholesterol, hormone and blood-sugar balance and amazing for boosted energy.
Oats contain many different vitamins and minerals, such as phosphorus and magnesium and are also high in antioxidants. Put together with dates, which are rich in Vitamins A and K, B vitamins, fibre, iron and potassium, and you’ve got yourself a decadent dessert that is as good for your body as it tastes!
