Gluten & Sugar-Free Coconut Pecan Bark

Gluten & Sugar Free Coconut Pecan Bark


Scouring the internet like I do sometimes, I came across a coconut bark that has no added sugar in it. I know the health benefits of coconut butter but with the added interest of lowering my intake of sugar I thought I’d give this recipe a try.
This bark doesn’t have a sweetness to it, but the combination of coconut, pecans and almonds lends a heartiness to it. You could add dried cranberries to the bark for a pinch of sweetness.
