Okay, y'all. If you have not tried coconut manna yet, you need to get on that train asap! I only learned of this delicious treat during our recent FASTer Way to Fat Loss sugar elimination challenge. Boy do I wish I had heard of it sooner - I could have used this in my life for the past few years!
Coconut manna is the same as coconut butter. Basically, it's ground whole coconut and the water has been removed. You can eat it like any other nut butter, but I have found a delicious way to incorporate this treat into my low carb days.
Introducing.....COCONUT MANNA CHIA BARK! This tastes like a candy bar, my friends. But it's a healthy one! One that will add healthy fat to your diet, boost your immunity (it contains lauric acid, which wards off bacteria and viruses!), aid in weight loss and supply essential amino acids, calcium and magnesium.
Here's how I make it. In a small dish or ramekin, mix together:
3 Tbls. coconut manna
2 Tbls. chia seeds
a few drops of liquid stevia
Add additional toppings if you'd like, such as coconut flakes, toasted macadamia nuts, dried fruit, etc.
Put in the freezer for a few hours, until frozen solid. When it is frozen, take it out of the freezer, pop it out of the dish, break it into pieces and ENJOY!!

I love to cook and bake recipes that incorporate healthy whole foods and those nutritious macro and micronutrients into our daily diets. I also like to make treats though, because let's face it, everyone loves a good sweet now and then! My favorite part about cooking, though, is sharing my latest recipes with others. ENJOY! XO
