Carob Coconut and goji berry Slice
As many of you know, I am not a big fan of cacao for kids! So I have put together a yummy treat that both the kids and adults can have! Im calling it my Carob Coconut slice, it is packed full of goodness.
These little slices are brain bood as it includes linseed’s ( omega’s 6&9) Coconut oil. When you use coconut oil and linseed’s together it can help increases the conversion of short chain omega-3 to long chain omega-3 from 1-3% conversion up to 10% conversion.
