Creamy Matcha Bars

DID YOU KNOW? Consuming high amounts of refined sugar and artificial sweeteners can contribute to IBS and other digestive system disorders.

Most artificial sweeteners cause symptoms of indigestion, including gas, bloating, cramping and constipation.

A big step you can take towards creating a healthier gut and supporting digestion is to remove refined sugar and artificial sweeteners from your diet and use small amounts of unrefined natural sweeteners like honey and maple syrup instead – if needed.

Honey and maple syrup are great if you’re looking to create healthy desserts, treats or snacks. Search the “Snacks + Treats” section of my blog to find recipes that use healthy sweeteners.

Pair my Creamy Matcha Bars with a hot matcha latte or cold matcha latte for a morning or mid-day boost!

AND if you love these bars, you’ve got to try my Coconut Lemon Bars too!
