Better than a Mounds Bar…no joke.

And, with out all the unhealthy ingredients!

Mounds Bar Ingredients:

CORN SYRUP; SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE ( CHOCOLATE; SUGAR; COCOA; MILK FAT; COCOA BUTTER; SOY LECITHIN; PGPR, EMULSIFIER) ; COCONUT; SUGAR; SALT; NATURAL & ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR; HYDROLYZED MILK PROTEIN; SODIU M METABISULFITE, TO MAINTAIN FRESHNESS; SULFUR DIOXIDE, TO MAINTAIN FRESHNESS; CARAMEL COLOR; MILK

Sodium Metabisulfite…What is that?

If you take away only one bit of information from this blog, remember this:

If you can’t pronounce it or don’t know what it is…Don’t eat it!

So, here is a recipe for a much healthier and whole-food version of a Mounds Bar!

No Sodium Metabisulfite found here!

I was inspired from a recipe found here.

Tip of the Day:  Often times shredded coconut is preserved using propylene glycol, an ingredient found in antifreeze!  Read labels carefully!  Bob’s Red Mill brand is easy to find and has only one ingredient: natural unsulfured coconut.
