This snack is a true treasure, to the palate and the body!  The shredded coconut meat, along with the coconut oil, help the body access and use stored fats for energy.  It is also high in lauric acid, which helps bring balance to the intestinal flora.  The coconut and the almonds boost the protein profile, making this a snack that will satisfy your hunger and keep you energized for a while!   The bar is sweetened naturally with dates, and flavored with real vanilla and sea salt — all adding their contributions to flavor, but also bring an impressive list of minerals and micronutrients that your body will love.  This may become a favorite!
