Coconut Flour Chocolate Chunk Bar

Ever since I have digestive problems, I am on a look out for food that are easier for my digestive system. Although this bar has caffeine from the chocolates, that can add strain on my digestion as well as my nervous system, I still eat them anyway. I just leave the chocolates for my family. Oh...ok, you got me!  I still eat the chocolates....very little. I've given up on coffee for 4 months already so a little chocolate won't do any harm except a little discomfort on my tummy.

This snack is amazingly delicious and easy to make. With the use of coconut flour, this snack is good for gluten-free eaters, those with digestive problems, anyone with nut allergy and diabetes. That is because coconut flour is high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats, and is free from wheat and other grains. It is also low in sugar, digestible carbohydrates and calories, and has a low score on glycemic index. (source from Dr. Axe)
