Here’s a surprise quiz — if you had to use one ingredient for making a treat, but it had to be unquestionably healthy — what would you use? Here’s the answer…
Coconut. Lucky you, there are many forms of coconut to use to create healthy treats. Coconut has such an awesome flavor, it doesn’t even require very much sweetener. In this recipe there is hardly any sweetener compared to the amount of coconut. You should probably taste it to make sure it will be sweet enough for you.
