Raw Coconut and Matcha Superfood Bar

These bars I created for the #cocotarget competition which I was delighted to win!

On retreat the chef even whipped up a batch and they went down a treat by trainers and guests alike!

Brownie Base Layer

Matcha Pear Chia Jam Middle Layer

  • One pear (needs to be very ripe and juicy!)
  • 2 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 2 tsp Matcha Powder

Coconut Crumble Top Layer

How Do I Make It?

Start by blending the nuts and then slowly add all of the other base layer ingredients to your food processor. Keep blending until it forms a sticky dough-like substance.

Pat this mixture down into a baking tray lined with either cling film or greaseproof paper (this will make your life a whole lot easier later!) and put it into the fridge to set. I recommend leaving it for 2 hours in the freezer if you want to get it done quickly, or for 4 hours in the fridge if you’re not in a rush.

Meanwhile, make the matcha jam by mashing the pear with a fork and adding the chia seeds and matcha. Stir together until well combined.  You will notice that the chia seeds should start to absorb the liquid and create a jam-like consistency. If you’re pear is not really, really ripe then this process is unlikely to happen, but don’t worry as you can use any fruit you like, so just try something else in your fruit bowl!

Finally prepare the topping by beating together the sugar and coconut oil and then adding the desiccated flakes until it forms a crumb consistency.

Take your base out of the fridge and layer on the jam followed by the coconut crumble.

Place it all back into the fridge until it’s ready to serve!
