If you love coconut (like I do!) this is a really fun treat. WIth hints of white & dark chocolate, caramel and flaky layers of coconut, you will be so glad you have bites of this on hand when that sweet craving creeps in. I'm speaking from experience here! If you can't easily get your hands on the superfood powders like lucuma and mesquite, you can totally skip them, though the resulting flavor will be a little less complex. If you're ready to experiment, you can order these and much more from raw food suppliers like Natural Zing.
