These mouthwatering healthy chocolate bounty bars are so good you won’t be able to stop at just one. They’re full of protein and fibre so they won’t send your blood sugar levels soaring. These bars provide a good dose of zinc to support healthy immune function, and beneficial unsaturated fats which are important for good cardiovascular health. Coconut flesh contains inulin, which is a type of prebiotic fibre that helps feed and promote the growth of good bacteria in the gut. Dark chocolate contains polyphenols which have been shown to promote good heart health and can help lower cholesterol levels.
