Sweet Potato and Coconut Bars


These sweet potato and coconut bars are full of goodness to keep you feeling full throughout the day without the addition of any refined sugar, gluten and dairy.

These are a favourite morning or afteroon tea snack for my 18 month old son Maxy. I love that I can store them in the freezer and pull one out a time. It defintely makes life easier having a few healthy snack options on hand.

Sometimes I spread a little coconut yogurt and top with sliced banana’s which we both love.
