Recipe Notes
*Coconut flakes are just the least processed form of coconut meat. Try purchasing them unsweetened and in large flake size, which is chunkier and does not contain the anti-caking agent found in most common store brands of shredded coconut. You can find coconut flakes in most gourmet or higher end grocery stores.
**Cocoa nibs are available at most health food stores and some grocery stores. It is the raw chocolate bean before it is processed into chocolate bars. Full of antioxidants, cocoa nibs are considered a superfood. In addition to antioxidants, it is known for being high in magnesium, iron, chromium, manganese, zinc, copper, vitamin C and Omega 6 fatty acids.
