Coconut Rough (Dairy, Gluten, Grain and Refined Sugar Free)

Yeah a simple chocolate treat!  I love making this recipe.  It takes such little time and can be easily adapted to include other nuts, seeds and flavours.  These are full of good fats which will help your digestion, energy, skin, thyroid, hormones, metabolism, immune system and brain.  Go ahead, enjoy!
