I made these bars with coconut oil instead of butter for a healthy fat bar. These are low in sugar and contain a tablespoon of flax seed for your Omega 3’s. The coconut and raisins add some extra sweetness.
I don’t feel guilty letting Rowan snack on these healthy bars. Plus, he has been pickier than usual lately, so if he eats a couple of these and some strawberries for a meal, I feel ok with myself. They also make a nice breakfast and freeze well. Try them!
Starting now, I am adding printables for the recipes I feature, enjoy!
