2/3 c Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

1/3 c Coconut Cream

3 Tbs Coconut Oil

1 tsp Vanilla

1/4-1/2 tsp Pure Monk Fruit

1/4 tsp Cinnamon

Dash of Salt

1 tsp Maca Powder (Optional)

1 1/4 c Almond Flour


6 Tbs Coconut Cream

3 tsp Matcha Powder

1/4 c Hemp Seeds


  1. In a food processor or blender, blend the shredded coconut, coconut cream, coconut oil, vanilla, pure monk fruit, cinnamon, salt, and optional maca powder, scraping down the sides as you go. (Use 1/2 tsp of pure monk fruit for a sweeter flavor, and 1/4 tsp for a more savory flavor.)

  2. Add in the almond flour, 1/4 cup at at time, blending as you go. Continue to process until a smooth, well combined dough forms.

  3. Grease or spread parchment paper on a baking sheet. Take about half of your dough and form a ball using your hands. Place the ball in the middle of the sheet, and press down with your palm to flatten. If you have a rolling pin, roll out the dough to form a very thin crust (as pictured).

  4. To make the topping: Whisk the coconut cream and matcha powder together in a small bowl. Pour about 1/2 of the mixture over the dough, spreading evenly with a knife or brush.

  5. Sprinkle half of the hemp seeds evenly over the top (about 1/8 cup).

  6. Place in the freezer to set for 30 minutes - 1 hour.

  7. Remove the pan from the freezer. Using a sharp knife, cut the bars into squares or rectangles. Separate the bars from the parchment paper (if not using paper, use a spatula to release the bars).

  8. Repeat the process with the other half of the dough.

  9. Store in the freezer or fridge for several weeks.


Some people experience a negative reaction to monk fruit. If this is the case, you may replace 1:1 with pure organic stevia, or omit the sweetener completely.
