Any recipe I create is free of most allergens, especially gluten, wheat, yeast, dairy, soy, eggs and genetically modified organisms (GMOs)! I’m also a huge advocate on reducing sugar consumption in general, so these bars are very low sugar. I used organic coconut sap to sweeten them just a tad.
Coconut sap is naturally low on the glycemic index (35), and also contains 17 amino acids, minerals, B vitamins and vitamin C. If you’re going to use a sweetener, coconut sap is a less refined option than agave syrup, which is hyped up by marketing companies to be a “healthy” sugar alternative, but is actually very high in fructose (as opposed to sucrose), and is therefore similar to high fructose corn syrup.
