Chocolate Chip Coconut Pecan Squares

Calling all coconut lovers!!! These decadent bars, inspired by the southern favourite, Hello Dollies, are made clean and oh so simple by yours truly :).

Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fibre and energy, with low glycemic index. It improves heart health, keeps us full, reduces sugar cravings and is a valuable source of lauric acid, a natural antimicrobial fatty acid, which helps fights bacterial, fungal and viral infections to boost the immune system.

Indulge away…
